Can Tifft Get Into The Top 4? Will Reddick Falter?

At the beginning of the 2018 NASCAR XFINITY Series season, I don’t think anyone would have had Matt Tifft as a legitimate Championship 4 contender. Nothing against him though, but heading into this season he had just three career top five finishes in the series. In just the last 14 races, he’s had four. See, Tifft is a sleeper to make it to the final round and if he keeps running the way that he’s been, his No. 2 Chevrolet could be at the Homestead-Miami Speedway in two weeks with…

RCR Teammates Hemric, Tifft Ending Regular Season On High Note

It was a preconceived notion that two of the four Championship 4 spots in the NASCAR XFINITY Series at the Homestead-Miami Speedway would belong to Justin Allgaier and Christopher Bell. While it’s still very likely that the duo make it to Homestead, two more sleepers are emerging to join them. I’d watch out for the Richard Childress Racing duo of Daniel Hemric and Matt Tifft. They’re heading into the playoffs on hot streaks and driving as well as anyone with the exception of Allgaier.

Tifft Nets 2nd Straight Top 5 Finish In Mid-Ohio

For Matt Tifft, the annual NASCAR XFINITY Series stop at the Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course means a little more to him than others in the field. See, Tifft grew up in Hinckley, Ohio, which is roughly a little over an hour from the 2.258-mile road course. So, any time he gets a chance to race at Mid-Ohio, it’s his lone “home game” of the year.
