Reddick Flies On Indy Road Course

INDIANAPOLIS — Tyler Reddick scored his second NASCAR Cup Series pole as the fastest qualifier in Saturday’s two-round qualification session for the Verizon 200 at Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

Reddick won the pole with lap of 99.378 mph around the 14-turn, 2.439-mile Indianapolis Motor Speedway road course in a Richard Childress Racing Chevrolet.

It was Reddick’s second pole in 96 NASCAR Cup Series races. Both have come on road courses. His first was at Circuit of The Americas in 2021.

“It felt like a good lap, but not enough for it to be on the pole,” Reddick said. “But we didn’t have to go back out because it was good enough to win the pole.”

Austin Cindric’s Ford was second at 99.095 mph in the No. 2 Ford for team Penske. It was his 11th top-10 start of 2022 and his first in two races at the Indianapolis Motor road course.

Chase Briscoe was third in a Ford at 98.962 mph followed by Christopher Bell’s Toyota at 98.721 mph.

Joey Logano rounded out the top five in the Shell/Pennzoil Ford after running a final round lap at 98.721 mph.

Sunday’s race can be seen on NBC Sports with the telecast beginning at 2 p.m. Eastern Time. The race is scheduled to take the green flag at 2:30 p.m. ET.
