TYLER REDDICK QUOTES:
What are your thoughts entering Kansas this weekend?
“I like Kansas Speedway a lot. When we were at Kansas in the spring, we were really fast and just had some weird stuff happen to us. We’re just going to go in there and do our job and hopefully it’s a good day. I would love to be up front and running for the win. We were good enough to do that the last time we were there. We were just close enough to wide open there around the top where the bottom and middle weren’t that great but I think the gains that everyone has been making on these cars might open up the middle and bottom some more. That should be exciting and that should be a good thing.”
You enter Kansas Speedway 23 points above the cutline and after Darlington Raceway, a minimum of 10 drivers will advance to the next round based on points. Does that change your approach entering this weekend?
“No, not for me. I mean, we can’t let up. I was adamant about how I was going to approach the Playoffs this year and it was going to be one race at a time. We’re going to treat it like we’ve been treating all the races this season. We’re going to go out and do our job to the best of our ability and make the most of it. Certainly, if we’re having a tough day and we’re fighting really hard for one spot with somebody who doesn’t want to give it up I think at that point you’ve got to be smart. But for how we approach race weekend and the race, nothing changes. We just keep doing what we’ve been doing all year long. We’ve had good speed and a lot of things have been really close for us.”
