Tyler & J.J. Have Been Dyn-o-mite: The No. 29 Cooper Standard Ford F-150 driven by Tyler Reddick (@TylerReddick) in the Longhorn 350 Friday night at Texas Motor Speedway is named J.Jafter Good Times TV show character Jimmie "J.J." Walker.  Reddick and J.J. have lived up to the character's 'dyn-o-mite' catchphrase this season, winning Oct. 1 at Las Vegas Motor Speedway and scoring a fourth-place finish at Chicagoland (Joliet, Ill.) Speedway.  
Tyler Reddick Notes
  • Has three top-five finishes in five previous NCWTS starts at Texas including a fifth-place effort in the Rattlesnake 400 in June  - best finish is fourth in the 2014 fall race
  • Won the pole position for the 2014 fall event - his second career pole and the first for Brad Keselowski Racing at Texas
  • Led at least one lap in three of the past four Texas races
  • Won most recent NCWTS race on an intermediate track Oct. 1 at Las Vegas Motor Speedway, his third career victory
  • Also led the most laps at Las Vegas (70 of 146) with an average running position was 2.22
  • Has seven top-10 finishes in 12 speedway races in 2016
  • His 207 laps led (280.75 miles) in speedway races this season is third-best in the NCWTS
Daniel Hemric - No. 19 Blue Gate Bank Ford F-150: "I feel really good about where our team is going for Texas Motor Speedway, especially after our mile-and-a-half performance at Las Vegas and the success we had at Texas in the spring. The racetrack tends to change a lot between the spring and fall races, which is something that we've spent a lot of time preparing for as an organization. We go there with high hopes of trying to contend and putting ourselves in position to win to win the race. I'm really proud of how far we've come and I'm looking forward to taking another step in the right direction."
Chad Kendrick - Crew Chief, No. 19 Blue Gate Bank Ford 
F-150"We were really good at Texas in the spring.  We led 19 laps with our Ford F-150 until a part failure kept us from getting the finish we deserved. If it gets really cool during the race, it'll be wide open for the first half of the run because everybody is going to have a ton of grip. We are going back with our Las Vegas truck, which we led laps with and contended with our teammate for the win. Our organization has a lot of momentum on the mile-and-a-half tracks, so I think we are going to be able to contend for the win this weekend."
Doug Randolph - Crew Chief, No. 29 Cooper Standard Ford F-150: "Texas is a place that we've run well every race with Tyler but haven't gotten the finishes that we want.  In June, we had a flat that got us behind the eight ball, but Tyler did a great job on long green runs and on the last lap he made a pass for fifth.  Everyone on the Cooper Standard team is looking forward to Texas.  Tyler is in a comfort zone when he gets there.  The tires fall off and he's really good at searching for a line that he can make work with old, worn out tires."
