Full Story:

The Cup Series is back at the Brickyard. And this year, several young racers are hoping to make their mark there.

It starts with Richard Childress Racing’s Tyler Reddick, who is arguably the hottest commodity in NASCAR. He recently agreed to join Michael Jordan’s 23XI Racing in 2024. Reddick snagged his second career pole on Saturday, outpacing Team Penske’s Austin Cindric to lead the pack for Sunday’s Verizon 200 at Brickyard.

But Reddick is far from the only youngster who looks set up for success. Joe Gibbs Racing’s Christopher Bell has nabbed 12 top-10 finishes this season and is sixth in the Cup Series standings. William Byron, 24, has taken the checkered flag at Atlanta and Martinsville.

Oh, and Ty Gibbs, just 19 years old, is hoping to improve upon a strong showing after taking over for Kurt Busch (concussion) in last week’s wacky race at Pocono. Amid all the chaos, Gibbs finished in the top 20, an impressive result for someone competing in his first Cup Series race. With Gibbs set to man the No. 45 car once more for 23XI Racing as Busch continues to recover, he will hope to cement his status as a real prospect. That could prove especially important with Kyle Busch’s contract with Joe Gibbs Racing set to expire in 2023.
