Tyler Reddick scored his second top 10 of 2020 but was not second-best among Cup Series rookies in Sunday’s Coca-Cola 600.
Reddick finished 8th as the highest-finishing rookie, ahead of no. 95 Christopher Bell who finished 9th, as the second-highest finishing rookie, in his best finish of the season so far.
No. 41 Cole Custer finished three spots behind Bell, in 12th. Custer received the lucky dog under the lap 302 caution but then received an uncontrolled tire penalty under a lap 349 caution before rebounding for his second top 15 finish of the season.
No. 38 John Hunter Nemechek finished 16th after leading one lap. Nemechek was the only rookie to lead with it coming on lap 163 during a cycle of green-flag pit stops.
No. 15 Brennan Poole finished 30th while No. 00 Quin Houff finished 35th to round out the rookies in the field.
Tyler Reddick continues to lead the rookie of the year points, with a 43-point lead over Cole Custer, heading into Wednesday night’s Alsco Uniforms 500k (TV: FS1, Radio: PRN; 8pm EST)
