Tyler Reddick Spins Off Turn 4, Slams Barrels at Pit Entry

CONCORD, N.C. – Tyler Reddick lost control of his No. 8 Richard Childress Racing Next Gen test car on Wednesday afternoon. While spinning out of turn four, Reddick slammed the car’s driver-side into the barrels at pit road entry. The sand-filled barrels are in place to protect drivers from blunt hits to the wall.

Despite what looked like a hit where the car was sure to be destroyed, the Next Gen held up surprisingly well and appeared to possibly have repairable damage.

Hate it for the team,” Reddick posted on Twitter after the crash. “The steering is a little off to the right from the contact. Other than that, the damage is all body. We will take our time to fix the car and make the adjustments we were planning on for Friday.”

Other incidents so far today include an early spin by Ricky Stenhouse Jr. The No. 47 driver spun off of turn four while setting up a pass on a few cars ahead of him.

“Not how we drew it up,” Stenhouse said on Twitter about the spin. “Crazy with this car, it was really loose by itself, when the 10 pulls down car gets really tight (won’t turn) then when the 10 slides up the track, car gains a bunch of front downforce and snaps.”
