FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) Tyler Reddick opened the round of 12 in NASCAR's playoff with a victory at Texas on Sunday, winning a week after being one of the first four Cup drivers knocked out of title contention.

After none of the contenders won the first three races of the playoffs - a first in any round in this postseason format - the trend continued with the eliminated Reddick leading 53 of the final 54 laps on a long race day that went into the night.

Reddick finished 1.19 seconds ahead of Joey Logano at the end of an extended race that had a track-record 17 cautions, a record 36 lead changes, a 56-minute red flag for lightning and multiple tire issues leading to crashes - including playoff contenders Chase Elliott, the points leader going into the second round, and Christopher Bell.
