According to Reddick, “Cars are on edge – and that’s a good thing“. Meanwhile, Roush Fenway Keselowski Racing’s Brad Keselowski echoed the sentiment. Apparently, the main purpose of these new cars is to lay more emphasis on driver skills.

How has the test panned out for Brad Keselowski and Tyler Reddick?

So far, the Charlotte Motor Speedway pre-season test has yielded contrasting results for the two. The #6 driver topped the first group session and finished 2nd in the second session. Finally, he ended up 6th in the third session of the day; all in all, showing good pace.

Meanwhile, poor old Reddick suffered from a couple of spins which hampered him in the first session. As a result, he ended up all the way down in 15th place. Luckily, session 2 was a lot kinder to him, and he ended up in a decent 4th place behind William Byron, Keselowski, and Kyle Busch.

Unfortunately, he got caught up in an incident in session three; Ty Dillon was also involved, as was Hendrick Motorsports’ Chase Elliott. Luckily, the three drivers were able to drive back to the garage for repairs and Reddick ultimately finished the session in 10th place. With that, the test at the Charlotte Motor Speedway has officially drawn to a close.
