Reddick Earns Second Career Pole

(INDIANAPOLIS, IN – 30 JULY, 2022 – RIS) Early in the first session of practice, Ross Chastain and Austin Cindric held the top spots on the scoring pylon at Indy, with Brad Keselowski, Daniel Suarez and Todd Gilliland filling out the top five until Ryan Blaney and Kyle Busch jumped into fourth and fifth. Austin Cindric ended Session A as fastest, followed by Suarez, Blaney, Chastain and Keselowski.

Christopher Bell headed Group B, with Tyler Reddick, AJ Allmendinger, Kevin Harvick and Joey Hand the rest of the top five.
Austin Cindric topped the chart after the first round of qualifying, with Ryan Blaney next. 

In qualifying, Tyler Reddick took his second career pole, the first one also at a road course, with the COTA pole last year his first. Austin Cindric qualified second, about a quarter of a second slower, with Chase Briscoe third, Christopher Bell in the top qualifying Toyota and Joey Logano filling out the top five.

“It actually didn’t [feel that good]” reported Reddick after qualifying. “It’s what really prompted me to want to re-run there, but it ended up being a good enough lap. I could have done a better job, but it was really nice to know that we really did such a good job; everyone at RCR and the ECR power under this hood. Just this whole group on the No. 8 3CHI Chevrolet team did a really good job of preparing the last couple of weeks for this race. It looks like we’re picking right back up where we left off at Road America.”
