February 21st, 2014 - The NextEra Energy Resources 250 was held at Daytona International Speedway (Daytona Beach, Florida) on Friday evening. Heavy rain in the afternoon forced qualifying for the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series event to be canceled, and as a result Tyler Reddick started tenth on the grid via team owner points in his 19 BKR/Reese Tow Power/Cooper Standard/ Draw-Tite/Broken Bow Records/Roush Yates Racing Engine/Ford F-150.
He ran in the top ten until a mandatory lap 20, competition yellow, and while pitting bad luck struck as the truck stalled on pit road. He refired his entry, but not before losing valuable track position as he dropped to as far back as the 34th position. Reddick's wild night would be far from over though as he narrowly escaped a multi-truck incident on lap 74 with only minor damage. In the final twenty-six laps of the event Tyler advanced to a 12th place finish in his first NCWTS race of the 2014 campaign.
