Tyler Reddick New Hampshire Motor Speedway Recap

The UNOH 175 at New Hampshire Motor Speedway was a bit disappointing for Tyler Reddick.
The driver of the Stoney Creek Records Ford F-150 was credited with a 15th place finish. Reddick (@TylerReddick) now sits third in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series championship standings, 19 points behind the leader.
Reddick started 14th in the 175 lap race but was able to climb inside the top 10 during the opening laps of the event.  He stayed there throughout the first 25 laps despite having a truck that was really tight in the center of the corners.
Tyler was running just outside the top 10 on lap 37 when he ran through oil off Turn 4 and went for a lazy spin.  Fortunately he didn't make contact with a wall or a fellow competitor, but the incident brought out the second caution of the race.  Reddick pitted on lap 40 for four tires and a chassis adjustment and lined up 13th when the race went green on lap 44.
Reddick again had his hands full with an ill handling truck during the following green flag run.   He was 14th at the time of the third caution on lap 68 and one lap later he pitted for fuel and a chassis adjustment while the majority of the leaders stayed out.  Tyler restarted 13th when the race went green on lap 71.
He was running 16th when a sequence of green flag stops began on lap 110.  By stopping for fuel under the previous caution, Reddick stayed out while most of his fellow competitors visited pit lane for service, a calculated risk the team hoped would pay off with track position late in the race.  Reddick cycled up to sixth position when the fourth yellow slowed the race on lap 137.  Tyler pitted for tires and fuel on lap 138 and restated ninth when the race went green on lap 141.
The fifth caution of the race on lap 146 set up another action packed restart.  Reddick took the green in 11th position on lap 153 and was working his way through traffic when he spun off Turn 2 on lap 162, bringing out the sixth and final caution. 
Unfortunately for Reddick there was damage to the right front and right rear of the No. 19 truck.  Tyler stopped twice under caution while the team made repairs.  He rejoined the field in 15th when the race went green on lap 166, holding firm to the position over the final nine laps.
