NASCAR heads back to the ovals after a hectic race weekend on the IMS Road Course. Tyler Reddick claimed victory while Ross Chastain was the center of controversy once again. On the final restart, he took the access road in Turn 1 and ending up gaining ground, even fighting Reddick for the race lead. He crossed the line second, but was penalized and dropped to 27th in the final running order.
It is Reddick’s second victory of the 2022 season, both coming on a road course. Rookies Harrison Burton and Todd Gilliland each claimed the best result of their young Cup careers, finishing third and fourth, respectively.
The winless Ryan Blaney and Martin Truex Jr. are still hanging onto the final two playoff spots with no new winners this past week. A 15th different winner over the next month would boot one of them out of the top-16, despite sitting inside the top-five in regular season points.
Ty Gibbs finished 16th in his Cup Series debut at Pocono, subbing for Kurt Busch, following it up with another top-20 at IMS. He will again be in the No. 45 this weekend as Busch recovers from a crash in Pocono qualifying that left him with concussion-like symptoms.
Austin Hill will be making his NASCAR Cup Series debut this weekend in a third entry for Richard Childress Racing.
