REDDICK EARNS THIRD XFINITY VICTORY OF SEASON
Tyler Reddick raced to his third NASCAR Xfinity Series victory of the season Saturday after taking the lead with 10 laps remaining at Brooklyn, Mich.
Reddick trailed Cole Custer and Christopher Bell, but they still needed to make pit stops. That’s when Reddick moved in front. It was smooth sailing for him from there at Michigan International Speedway.
Reddick, the series points leader, won for the third time in the past five races. Noah Gragson battled to a second-place finish, followed by Michael Annett and Paul Menard.
Menard, the pole winner, won the first stage, and Bell won the second stage. Reddick won the 125-lap, 250-mile race by 1.5 seconds in his No. 2 Chevrolet.
It was Reddick’s sixth career Xfinity win. Custer ended up 12th and Bell was 13th.
Formula One: Ferrari driver Sebastian Vettel produced a stunning final lap to clinch pole position for the Canadian Grand Prix on Saturday at Montreal.
Formula One champion Lewis Hamilton looked to set for a career-extending 86th pole – and a record seventh in Montreal – but Vettel found extra speed in the final sector of qualifying.
It was the 56th pole of the German’s career and first since the German GP last July.
The four-time F1 champion was 0.2 seconds quicker than Hamilton and about 0.7 faster than Ferrari teammate Charles Leclerc.
Gander Outdoors Truck Series: Greg Biffle won his first NASCAR Trucks series start since 2004, taking the SpeedyCash.com 400 at Texas Motor Speedway on Friday night at Fort Worth.
With 10 laps remaining, Biffle came out of a caution with the lead and held off the field for his first trucks series win since 2001. It was his first NASCAR start of any kind since 2016.
Matt Crafton came in second and 18-year-old rookie Tyler Ankrum finished a career-best third.
