Radish, a regular participant in the Series Cup, is only the second to start this year driving a Chevrolet № 48 from Big Machine Racing.

The win is the first for an organization – owned by Scott Borchette – that only started putting up a team last season.

Shortly before the last precaution in the race, Reddick overtook Brendan Jones in 137th out of 167 laps to take the lead in the race for the first time. He got a great jump on the restart for 21 laps to go and held William Byron at 1,825 seconds for his 10th career win.

“Just a big thank you to Big Machine Racing for this opportunity,” Reddick said. “We had a good car in Darlington and I threw it away. Nice to come back and redeem yourself.

“These guys have worked very hard and they want to run ahead. We’re going to come here and try to help them be ahead of where they want to be. It’s really great that we were able to do that in our second timeout. “

Asked about his emotions after the race, team leader Patrick Donahue said: “A little crying. We only started this business last year.

“Man, oh, we worked so hard and tore so many things. Everyone on this team who believed in what I wanted to do. I can’t even say. “

Sam Mayer took third place, Justin Algayer fourth, and Austin Hill closed the top five.

The top 10 included Ryan Trueks, Josh Berry, Riley Herbst, AJ Olmendinger and Landon Casil.
