@nascarcasm: Tyler Reddick needs a nickname

You watched the race from Homestead-Miami Speedway, and you’re probably thinking what we’re thinking – Tyler Reddick is too awesome to not have a nickname. He manhandled that car inches from the wall to pull off a jaw-dropping runner-up finish, so yeah, alias-time for this lad. We have a few quick suggestions.

A play off the TV program “Ridiculousness” which you may have seen on MTV because they don’t air anything else except this show. We think it fits Tyler pretty well.

One of Cheddar’s signature offerings are the golden-brown croissants. They are heaven in dough form. And this nickname works because there is little more that instills fear in your competitors than small pastries.

He’s actually 5'5" but this rolls off the tongue better so we’ll just round down on the height.

As in a fellow that hangs out against the wall, just like Tyler likes to do at Homestead. You can barely slide a sheet of paper between him and that SAFER barrier. And we know that every driver just yearns to have the word “flower” in their nickname. Makes the other drivers quake like Jell-O on the plate.

Self-explanatory really. This is it. This might be the one.

This translates roughly from Spanish to “The Lunatic Shrimp.”

The definition of the word “kinetic” is “relating to or resulting from motion.” Given how Tyler just winds it up against that wall, we think this fits. Plus it rhymes, and anything that rhymes autiomatically gets moved to the top of the pile.

I guess you’re safe, Bill Elliott.

This one works on many levels. First off, Tyler goes fast, hence the “zoom.” Second, CAT is one of his sponsors. And third but not least, his cat always interrupts his Zoom calls. It’s almost too perfect.

Everyone remembers The Big Show from WWE. He’s just as big a show, but not as big as The Big Show. But if he keeps driving like he did on Sunday, he is undoubtedly the show.
