By winning the NASCAR Cup Series race at Road America Sunday (July 3), Tyler Reddick became the 10th different driver to earn a points-awarding race for Richard Childress Racing.
Reddick has been driving the organization’s No. 8 Chevrolet full-time since 2020, earning the win in his 92nd career start.
“Everyone on this team at Richard Childress Racing has believed in me,” Reddick said of the win. “I’ve made a lot of mistakes along the way; but man, this year has been one step, one mistake away from greatness all year long, and we finally did it today. It feels good.”

Ricky Rudd earned the first two wins for the team in 1983.
