While Hamlin’s misfortune unfolded, Tyler Reddick, driving for 23XI Racing, remained unscathed. Reddick skillfully avoided the chaos and cycled to the front during the ensuing restart. As the race leader, Michael McDowell, attempted to block Brad Keselowski, disaster struck. McDowell hit the wall on the front straightaway, allowing Reddick to slingshot into the lead. The unexpected turn of events propelled Reddick to victory, marking a memorable moment for both him and team co-owner Michael Jordan.

For Michael Jordan, co-owner of 23XI Racing alongside Hamlin, the Talladega victory was a significant moment. It marked the first time he had been at the track to witness one of his drivers take the checkered flag. Reddick’s buzzer-beater win was a testament to his skill and the team’s strategy, turning what could have been a disastrous day into a celebration.
