2 Richard Childress Racing Chevrolet had the word “BEAST” in big block letters on its hood Friday night.
Even though Reddick had to come from the rear of the field twice in his Tame the Beast Camaro — once the result of a stiff penalty and once after a spin — he still needed a bit of luck to win the Food City 300 at Bristol Motor Speedway.
“I don’t know (how we did this),” said the reigning NASCAR Xfinity Series champion, who picked up his fourth victory of the season, his first at Bristol and the seventh of his career.
“I’ll be honest with you, this is the story of the year,” said Allgaeir, who led 131 laps, second only to the 137 of Kyle Busch, who fell out because of engine failure after winning the second stage.
John Hunter Nemechek ran third, followed by Jeremy Clements, pole-winner Austin Cindric and Gray Gaulding, the last driver on the lead lap.
That came long after championship contenders Christopher Bell and Cole Custer and Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series regulars Erik Jones and Joey Logano all sustained serious damage to their cars in a multi-car pileup on Lap 37.
