Getty Riley Herbst delivered another top-10 finish.

The New Holland 250 at Michigan International Speedway came to an end on August 6 with Ty Gibbs in Victory Lane. The Joe Gibbs Racing driver won his fifth race of the year while fellow Monster Energy athlete Riley Herbst secured his 14th top-10 finish of the Xfinity Series season.

Herbst, the driver of the No. 98 Stewart-Haas Racing Ford Mustang, had a quiet outing overall. He started 13th overall for the 125-lap event at the two-mile track. He moved up to 11th by the end of Stage 1 before ending Stage 2 18th due to his pit strategy. Herbst then kept himself in position for another top-10 finish during a caution-free final stage.

Herbst entered the race weekend having already matched his 2021 statistics. He had five top-five finishes and 13 top-10s through the first 20 races of the regular season. He then went out and secured his 14th, which secured the best season of his two-year tenure with SHR. Now Herbst is on pace to surpass his previous career-best numbers from the 2020 season.

Herbst Can Surpass Stats Set With Another Team

GettyRiley Herbst continues to pursue a career year.

With Herbst securing another top-10 finish, he continues to increase the likelihood that he will set new career marks across the board. He only needs one more top-five finish to set a new career-high, and he only needs four more top-10s.

Herbst’s first full-time season in the Xfinity Series was with Joe Gibbs Racing. He drove the No. 18 for one season and ended the year 12th in the championship standings after posting four top-fives and 17 top-10s.

Herbst hasn’t matched his number of top-10s, but he has performed better in other areas. For example, he ended the 2021 season 11th in the championship standings. Fast-forward to 2022, and Herbst sits in an even better position. He is eighth in the standings and well above the playoff cutline after overtaking Sam Mayer at Michigan International Speedway.

Herbst Continues His Pursuit of Another Accomplishment

GettyRiley Herbst continues to pursue his first career win.

The Las Vegas native has put himself in a position to hit new career marks in 2022. He is on pace for 22 top-10 finishes in the No. 98 SHR Ford Mustang, which would give him 56 in his Xfinity Series career.

While Herbst continues to pursue strong finishes, he remains focused on another goal. He wants to win in the Xfinity Series, which would be his first in a national NASCAR series. He has been close with 14 career top-five finishes and a pair of runner-ups from the 2020 season, but he hasn’t yet celebrated in Victory Lane.

There are multiple tracks that stand out as potential sites of another top-five finish or even a win. Darlington Raceway, Bristol Motor Speedway, Daytona International Speedway, and Phoenix Raceway are all options considering Herbst’s previous strong runs at these tracks. This includes a top-five during the season-opening race at Daytona and another top-five during throwback weekend at Darlington Raceway.

Josh Reynolds Compares Lions Offense to High-Powered NFC Attack

Getty Josh Reynolds enters the field for the Lions in 2022.

So far this season, the Detroit Lions have managed to have arguably the best offense in the NFL. The fact they have pulled this off might leave many shocked.

Last year at this time, the Lions were barely treading water, but with a new scheme as well as some new personnel, the team has revved things up in the right direction, leading some to give the squad some major credit for what they are accomplishing.

Wideout Josh Reynolds is one of those players. As Reynolds said when meeting with the media on Monday, October 3, he is getting vibes of what it was like to play with the Los Angeles Rams.

Josh Reynolds on the Lions' high-powered offense: "Its feeling real Ramsy for sure." Reynolds was part of some of those early high-scoring Rams teams

— Dave Birkett (@davebirkett) October 3, 2022

“Josh Reynolds on the Lions’ high-powered offense: “Its feeling real Ramsy for sure.” Reynolds was part of some of those early high-scoring Rams teams,” Birkett tweeted.

If there’s anyone to know what such an offense would be like, Reynolds would be the guy. He spent the 2017-2020 seasons with the Rams, and was around for the team’s offensive renaissance under offensive-minded head coach Sean McVay.

For Detroit, it doesn’t hurt they are getting some elite play from the Rams’ quarterback in that stretch in Jared Goff. Goff helped the Rams set some records during the 2018 season that culminated in a Super Bowl appearance.

Not only did the Rams finish with 401 first downs, they also scored 527 points, second-most in franchise history and piled up 6,738 yards.

If the Lions can finish the 2022 season just as strong on offense, that could go a long way toward helping them finish strong in the standings, providing they clean up some major defensive issues.

Lions’ 2022 Offense Brilliant Statistically

Statistically, it isn’t hard to see what Reynolds is talking about. Detroit has been on a tear through the first four weeks of the season, and across the board, the numbers are very impressive.

The team’s passing offense, ranked fifth-overall, has put up 272.8 yards per-game to go with 1,091 passing yards. They have 11 touchdowns so far this year, which is tied for the league lead. In terms of the run, the Lions have been quietly solid as well. Detroit has posted 164 yards per-game on the ground and seven touchdowns, good for sixth in the league.

Funny enough, by comparison, the Rams place near the bottom of total offense, ranking 27th in the league right now.

Given the Lions finished in a similar basement last year on offense, seeing their performance this time around has been a breath of fresh air. It gives major credit to the plan of Ben Johnson in his first year calling the shots for the team.

Reynolds Stepping up With Big Plays for Lions

In terms of his own game, Reynolds has impressed a lot since he was signed midway through last season. He came back to Detroit this offseason and scored his first touchdown in Week 2.

Again in Week 4, Reynolds managed to do a nice job to haul in a contested pass in the end zone. He would finish the day with 81 yards on seven receptions.

While his stay was not extended in Los Angeles, Reynolds still managed to put up 1,450 yards and 9 scores in his career with the team. That work gives him a good idea of what made that offense special just as his current work proves what could make the Lions special.

With 243 yards and two touchdowns already, Reynolds is making a statement about where his season is going. Already, he seems to think the Lions are capable of a huge year on par with some of the best in Los Angeles.
