HOMESTEAD, Fla. — Tyler Reddick’s win in the Ford EcoBoost 300 Saturday at Homestead-Miami Speedway secured his second consecutive Xfinity Series title.
Cole Custer, Christopher Bell and Justin Allgaier — who all finished second, fifth and 14th respectively — came up short on their quests to secure their first title in NASCAR’s second-tier series.
“We have had an unbelievable year,” said Custer, who led 15 laps. “It sucks to come home second two years in a row. We will take it. We were a lot closer this year.”
Bell, who will move on to the No. 95 Toyota in the Cup Series next season, will move on with 16 wins total in the series.
“Very thankful that I got to spend some time in the Xfinity Series,” Bell said. “These cars are a ton of fun to drive. I’m ready for the next chapter.”
Allgaier, who won one race this year, will be the only driver of the Championship 4 to return to the series full-time next season.
“He’s come a great job all season… it was cool to watch,” Allgaier said about Reddick winning the title.
