Richard Childress met with the media on Sunday following Tyler Reddick’s win in the Verizon 200 NASCAR Cup Series race at Indianapolis Motor Speedway and was asked about Reddick’s status with the team for next season before joining 23XI in 2024.
Q. Did you ever think with Tyler going away, would he lay down, because he’s fought for you every week? How does it make you feel to know you’ve got a racer out there?
RICHARD CHILDRESS: Well, after they made their announcement, I met — I thought about it a lot that night, gave it a lot of thought, and it’s more than just about one person. It’s about a team. Stayed up most of the night thinking about what I should do, how I wanted to handle it.
I went in the next day and told the whole team it wasn’t a perfect circumstance the way it went down, but we’re going to give it everything we’ve got this year, and we’ll see where we go next year.
Q. Richard, going back to your first answer, if I’ve got this right, I think you said we’re going to give it everything we’ve got this year and we’ll see what we get next year. Are you guys still figuring out 2024 with the 8 and Tyler?
RICHARD CHILDRESS: Yeah, Tyler will be in the car at RCR next year.
