LAS VEGAS — Hot on the heels of being named to the No. 45 23XI Racing Toyota in 2023, Tyler Reddick won the pole for Sunday’s South Point 400 at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.

For Reddick, it is his fourth career NASCAR Cup Series pole, his third of 2022 and his second on an oval. He also won the pole at Indianapolis in July and Kansas in September and started 7th at Las Vegas in March.
