With three wins in the last five road course races, Tyler Reddick seems to have supplanted Chase Elliott as NASCAR’s king of the road.
Or has he?
The list of aces on road courses is longer than you think. For instance, can you guess which active driver has the most career top-20 finishes on road courses?
Bet it would’ve taken you a while before landing on Chris Buescher! He has 15 such finishes in 16 starts.
SPEED FREAKS: Kyle Busch is going one way, Ross Chastain the other
Both Trackhouse Racing drivers, Ross Chastain and Daniel Suarez, have a win on the road in the last season plus, Michael McDowell has four top 10s in his last six starts, Martin Truex, Kyle Larson and Kyle Busch each have four wins on road courses and all that without even mentioning AJ Allmendinger.
So, with a trip to Sonoma looming this weekend, who is NASCAR’s best road course driver? It’s up to you to decide.
