Reddick wins at Road America for 1st NASCAR Cup victory

Tyler Reddick won Sunday at Road America by outdueling Chase Elliott, the defending champion on the course and the current points leader. The victory came in the 92nd start of his Cup career, which has included five second-place finishes.

 

The Richard Childress Racing driver won by 3.304 seconds over Elliott, who had the pole position and led for 36 of the 62 laps. 

 

Kyle Larson was third, followed by Ross Chastain and Daniel Suárez.

 

Elliott and Reddick were both well ahead of the field before making pit stops with about 20 laps remaining. Elliott had a narrow lead over Reddick as they came out of the pits, but Reddick eventually pulled ahead of him as they headed back toward the front of the pack.

 

Reddick took over the lead for good on the 47th lap once all the cars that had been ahead of him made their pit stops.
