DOVER, Del. — Tyler Reddick is ready to make the jump from Xfinity Series champ to Cup Series regular.
Reddick, the defending champion in NASCAR’s second-tier developmental series, has been promoted to NASCAR’s Cup Series with Richard Childress Racing next season to replace Daniel Hemric. Hemric was told last month he would not be retained for a second season.
The 23-year-old Reddick has five wins in Xfinity this season and remains in the hunt for a second straight title. He is third in the standings headed into Saturday’s first elimination race in that series’ playoffs.
