TYLER REDDICK QUOTE:
We know Talladega Superspeedway is a crapshoot. What is your confidence level heading into this weekend?
“I’m excited for Sunday at Talladega. Our Realtree Chevrolet Camaro will be hunting for the win for sure. Andy Petree and the folks at RCR have reminded me that we may be out of the Playoffs, but we are still racing for points. As much as I want to say that I’m going to race hard from the green flag and just have fun, I don’t know if that is the best thing to do for our Realtree team. On top of that too, if we get involved in a crash early and finish 40th, I really don’t want to start at the back of the field for the Roval next week. I feel like the rate that we have been improving on road courses and the amount of effort that is going into that race, we need to get everything we can at Talladega to start 13th ahead of all the other drivers not in the Playoffs. It kind of puts us in an interesting spot for this weekend. It’s a hard conversation that Randall (Burnett) and I have had and we are prepared for Sunday’s race. Ideally, we would get up front quickly, earn stage points, and it will take care of itself. The hardest part of superspeedway racing is balancing the want to race hard from the green flag versus being around at the end. No matter what our No. 8 team wants to make sure our Realtree Timber camo is up front at the checkered flag.”
