Tyler Reddick Wins at Las Vegas for 1-2 Brad Keselowski Racing Finish

Tyler Reddick a mad that he wasn’t a part of the inaugural NASCAR Camping World Trucks Series race. He missed out on the eight driver Chase field when the regular season ended after earning two victories a year ago. He was thinking this could be a banner year for him – instead, he was left out.

But, that didn’t stop him from not giving up for the rest of the season as Reddick backed his fourth place finish last weekend at New Hampshire up with his first victory of the season in Saturday night’s race at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway.

Reddick, was the driver to beat tonight at the 1.5-mile track, as he led a race-high 70 of the 146 laps in Saturday night’s DC Solar 350. It was his first victory in 34 races as his last win came in May of 2015 at Dover.

Reddick, beat his Brad Keselowski Racing teammate of Daniel Hemric to the finish line as it was the first ever 1-2 finish for BKR. For Hemric, it was a great night after bad luck last weekend at New Hampshire that saw hiim finish 28th. The runner-up effort tonight in Vegas was his fifth top three finish in the last six races and seventh in the last 10. Unfortunately though, that bad effort last Saturday stands out as he’s still seventh in the Chase grid, 15 points out of the final transfer spot to the second round.

The BKR duo would combine to lead 118 of the 146 laps.

Cole Custer brought his No. 00 Chevrolet home third for his fourth straight top 10 and sixth top six in the last eight races. Ben Kennedy would finish fourth in his No. 33 Chevrolet for just his second top 10 in his last five starts, all since his win at Bristol.

William Byron rounded out the top five.

Byron, leads his Kyle Busch Motorsports teammate and sixth place finisher tonight Christopher Bell in the standings while Matt Crafton, Kennedy, Timothy Peters and Johnny Sauter make up the six drivers in the advancing spots for the second round so far.

The series next races Oct. 22 at Talladega.
