Tyler George Reddick (born January 11, 1996) is an American professional stock car racing driver. He currently competes full-time in the NASCAR Xfinity Series, driving the No. 9 Chevrolet Camaro for JR Motorsports.

Racing career[edit]

Reddick's 2013 Truck

Reddick began his racing career at the age of four, competing in Outlaw Karts; soon after he was competing in mini sprints, midgets, dirt late models and sprint cars.[1] He was the youngest driver to qualify for the pole position at Eldora Speedway World 100, the youngest driver to win at the East Bay Winter Nationals, and the youngest winning driver in the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series.[2] He is also the youngest driver ever to qualify for a feature race in World of Outlaws sprint car racing.[3]

Reddick made his debut in the ARCA Racing Series in 2012; in October of that year, Reddick won in his first career start in the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East at Rockingham Speedway.[4] Reddick made his debut in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series in April 2013, driving for Ken Schrader Racing at Rockingham Speedway; he was involved in an accident during the race, and finished 30th.[5]

Reddick's No. 29 F-150, sporting a special paint scheme for the 2016 Careers for Veterans 200 at Michigan International Speedway.

In November 2013, it was announced that Reddick had been signed by Brad Keselowski Racing to compete in the Camping World Truck Series; he was scheduled to drive the team's No. 19 Ford in 16 events in the series in 2014, before running the full series schedule for the team in 2015.[1] On February 20, 2015, Reddick got his first career victory in the Camping World Truck Series at Daytona. On May 29, Reddick got his second career victory in the Truck Series at Dover. He led the points during the later stages of the summer until wrecking at Mosport, at which point he surrendered the lead to eventual champion Erik Jones. Reddick would ultimately finish second in his first full year of competition.

In 2016, Reddick returned to BKR switching the No. 19 to the No. 29, with his new BKR teammate Hemric using his previously No. 19. Reddick started the season with a crash at Daytona, finishing 18th. Reddick would have been a contention for the championship in 2016, but he failed to make it in to the playoff. Reddick would win at Las Vegas, for his first victory of the season. On November 10, 2016, it was announced that Reddick would not return to BKR next season.

Eight days after the BKR announcement, Reddick joined Chip Ganassi Racing to drive the No. 42 Chevrolet Camaro in the Xfinity Series on a part-time basis starting in 2017.[6] In September that year, he won his first Xfinity race at Kentucky Speedway after leading 66 laps and winning with a 14-second advantage over teammate Brennan Poole.[7] A month later, Reddick won his first Xfinity pole at Kansas Speedway.

On September 14, 2017, Reddick was signed by JR Motorsports to a full-time schedule for the 2018 Xfinity season, replacing William Byron, who was promoted to the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series, in the No. 9 car.[8] On February 17, 2018, Reddick beat teammate Elliott Sadler in a photo finish to win the season-opening race at Daytona. At a margin of .0004 seconds, it is the closest finish in NASCAR history.[9]
