FORT WORTH, Texas - Tyler Reddick opened the NASCAR Round of 16 playoffs with a victory in Texas on Sunday, capping a week when he was one of the first four drivers eliminated from title contention.

After a rival won the first three races of the playoffs - the first in any round in this postseason series - the trend continued as Reddick swept leading 53 of the final 54 laps in a long day of racing that extended in the middle of the night.

Reddick says: "I feel deeply distressed, I won't lie." "Unfortunately, pretty much every time we have a fast car we have a tire problem. This last lap the right corner was really shaky, really hard there. ... I try to increase it and use the hole I built (Logano) just in case. 

Logano took the lead in points, by 12 points over Ross Chastain. Elliott, who entered the round of 12 as the points leader, had a fiery finish after contact with the outside wall in Turn 4 while leading just after the halfway point of the race.

"I don't know that Goodyear made a mistake," Elliott said. "Goodyear usually takes a black eye, but NASCAR is putting them in a tough position to build tires that can survive these types of circuits on this car. I don't blame Goodyear." 

Goodyear and NASCAR officials said there are many teams without tire problems, and reports from those teams show they are being careful about the air they use in their tires. Not COMVICK Kevin Harvick in Martin Mescocey has a tire problem during 1 1/2 mile.
