Tyler Reddick Collects Sixth Top-Five Finish of the Year Despite Power-Steering Issues at Richmond Raceway

“Wow, what a battle by my No. 2 Anderson’s Maple Syrup team today to claim our fifth-consecutive top-five finish at one of my most challenging tracks. Our car was ok in practice this morning, but we lacked what we normally have for speed and handling. Part of that is also Richmond Raceway just being such a challenge for me to drive. In a sense, we lucked out with qualifying being rained out and were able to start second thanks to our owner points position. Once we went green, I lacked the drive off I needed to really be able to contend and pass people on the track. About halfway during Stage 2, the power steering went out in our Camaro, and that didn’t help the situation. We never gave up and kept fighting for every spot we could. The car actually started feeling the best it did all day late in the final stage, despite the lack of power steering, and I was able to start driving up through the field a little easier. I’m so proud of this team for finishing fourth and qualifying for our third straight Dash 4 Cash week at Talladega Superspeedway.”  -Tyler Reddick
