LOUDON, N.H. – With less than half the 2019 Xfinity Series schedule remaining and postseason racing right around the corner, defending champion Tyler Reddick doesn’t know where he’ll be calling home next year – or even what division he’ll be competing in.
On a path to his second straight title, the 23-year-old NXS points leader said Friday at New Hampshire Motor Speedway, site of Saturday’s ROXOR 200 (4 p.m. ET, NBCSN/NBC Sports App, PRN, SiriusXM NASCAR Radio), “it would be cool” if he and the rest of the series’ “Big 3” of himself, Christopher Bell and Cole Custer were racing in the Cup Series together next year, but perhaps not likely.
“I have fun racing against Christopher and Cole already but don’t know where all of us would stack up if we did go Cup racing,” Reddick said. “I have an idea of where those two would like to go, but it’s a matter of if they can go if the right opportunity opens up. You put them in the right cars, I think they’ve shown that they’re going to fly; they’re really fast. Just trying to continue to make our case every week we can so that when we get that opportunity, we can be ready for it.”
Reddick, who has three wins and 14 top 10s in 17 NXS starts this season, has made a pair of Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series starts this year. He piloted the No. 31 Richard Childress Racing entry in the Daytona 500 and again at Kansas Speedway, where he picked up the first top 10 of his career at NASCAR’s top level.
