The 302.7 CR, 303 CR and 303.5 CR featured on RCR’s No. 8 Chevrolet driven by Tyler Reddick represent the just launched 2.7-3.5 ton class machines and are built on the Next Generation platform offering a consistent operator experience throughout the Cat 1.5-10 ton mini excavator range. Each new model offers industry-first features as standard including stick steer, cruise control, operator adjustable settings and easy serviceability with a tilt-up canopy or sealed and pressurized cab – all design enhancements made with the operator in mind to increase efficiency, serviceability and comfort and lower costs.
Additionally, the car features customer names from National Association of Landscape Professionals (NALP) and Milton Cat to recognize key landscaping companies who work in the field each and every day and rely on mini excavators to get their work done. We thank these customers, NALP and Milton Cat who are vital to the growth and development of our products.
You earned a top-10 finish at New Hampshire Motor Speedway in your rookie Cup season without any practice beforehand. What do you make of going back to the “Magic Mile” this weekend with one Cup race there under your belt?
“New Hampshire Motor Speedway is a track that I’ve had to work really hard at to understand how to run better and get around there properly. I put a lot of work in over the off-season to be better at places like short tracks and road courses where you use a lot of brake, and New Hampshire is a track where you definitely need to manage your brakes well. We’ve done a really good job this year improving at tracks I found challenging before, so I’m excited to see what that means for New Hampshire this Sunday. I’m looking forward to the race, but I also know it’ll take a solid day from start to finish to remain in contention. Track position is important this weekend and executing all the little details perfectly when you have good track position is what it takes to run well and potentially win at Loudon, which is what we’re striving for with the No. 8 Cat #WeDigLandscaping Chevrolet.”
