In a dramatic showdown during the Goodyear 400 at Darlington Raceway, Chris Buescher and Tyler Reddick collided in the closing laps. Buescher, who had been eyeing his first victory of 2024, found himself in a fierce battle with Reddick for the win. As they entered Turn 3, Reddick made a daring move to Buescher’s left, resulting in contact.

Buescher was pushed into the wall, damaging his car and forcing him to pit. Reddick suffered a flat right-rear tire. The incident allowed Brad Keselowski, Buescher’s teammate and RFK Racing co-owner, to snatch the victory.

Notably, it was not the first time Chris VBuescher had missed the opportunity to win the race. In fact, the earlier week at Kansas was a rough end to make it NASCAR’s closest finish ever with 0.001 seconds where Chris lost to Kyle Larson. During the Harvick Happy Hour podcast Kevin Harvick’s co-host inquired about the feelings of Buescher after back-to-back disappointing incidents, Kevin said, “He feels like the world is against him.”

Buescher led at Darlington Raceway with just 10 laps remaining when Reddick boldly maneuvered to overtake Buescher’s No. 17 Mustang and seize the lead. Unfortunately, Reddick’s move didn’t go as calculated, causing him to lose control and collide with Buescher, sending both drivers into the outside wall.

The heart-wrenching blow destroyed their victory plans, and they were compelled to make an unscheduled pit stop, effectively terminating their race. Ultimately, Brad Keselowski emerged as the winner, while Reddick had to settle for 32nd place, and Buescher finished at No. 30.

However, Harvick remained skeptical about the sincerity of Reddick’s apology. On his NASCAR podcast on FOX, Kevin Harvick expressed his dissatisfaction with over-apologizing, calling it “pathetic.” He emphasized that drivers should acknowledge their aggressive moves without excessive apologies. Kevin Harvick stated, “I just wish they would apologize and say, ‘I have to do what I have to do to try to win the race. It didn’t work out. I’m sorry.’ But don’t over apologize, please.” He advised Reddick to apologize off-camera next time.
