Tyler Reddick was behind the wheel of the No. 24 Sam Hunt Racing Toyota Supra when he became a pinball between JRM drivers Sam Mayer, Josh Berry, and Brandon Jones.
The full-time Cup Series driver did not take kindly to the separate incidents but didn’t get too heated in his post race activities. Instead, he took the opportunity to discuss the issues off camera. Reddick won an Xfinity championship for JRM.

- Tyler Reddick was the victim of several hard hits from JRM drivers in Sunday’s Alliance Group 300 Xfinity race.
- 3 of the 4 JRM car made contact with the Toyota driver – Sam Mayer, Josh Berry, and Brandon Jones.
- The incidents may spark a feud between Sam Hunt Racing and JR Motorsports. SHR tweeted some swipes at JRM but those tweets have since been deleted.

Sam Hunt Racing recapped their day on Twitter.
