Blaney breaks through with 1st career Cup win

Blaney breaks through with 1st career Cup win”

Blaney worked the pits and was the victory lane host.

(21) Ryan Blaney, Ford, 177.897 miles per hour.

Wood Brothers Racing had been winless since Trevor Bayne's victory in the 2011 Daytona 500.

"We can finally add our name to that group", a beaming Blaney said. Then came an alliance forged with Team Penske in 2015, where the Roger Penske-owned operation supplied the Wood Brothers cars, technical data, and personnel. He had to do it without radio communication with his crew chief, Jeremy Bullins, as his radio failed about 40 laps into the race.

"I had a big run on him off of (Turn) 3, and he did a good job blocking, and we were able to get under him, but then I had to hold the 4 (Harvick) off".

He is part of a bumper crop of blossoming young talent that has hit NASCAR over the last couple of years. Other short odds to win are Brad Keselowski (11/2) and Martin Truex Jr.

Darrell "Bubba" Wallace made his Cup debut in place of the injured Aric Almirola but a troubled race, including drive-through and stop/go penalties for pitlane speeding, meant he finished 26th. I feel that's when it's time to go to work. "They said a 50.20 and I thought that was faster than the last round and hoped it was good enough for no one to beat it".

"It was a tough day, but we battled hard after having to start at the back due to an engine change after Saturday's practice", said Truex. So on Sunday, Keselowski chose to turn the tables, hop out of his vehicle and run over to Victory Lane to play pit reporter for Ryan Blaney.

Ryan Blaney was splashed with beer, accepted some handshakes and even gave a fist bump in a raucous victory lane celebration.

Kyle Busch stayed out during the final caution of the race for a Kasey Kahne wreck with 19 laps to go to retain his lead.

"I just didn't quite get the launch I needed. It was just a bad weekend for us and things didn't quite go the way we wanted them to on Sunday and we will change that here this time around in Pocono".

He was almost flawless over those final 10 laps.

"That one will take a smile off your face", Wallace said.

Jimmie Johnson, last week's victor at Dover, qualified 19th in the Hendrick Motorsports No. 48 Chevrolet.

Last week at Dover, Johnson moved into a tie for sixth on NASCAR's list with 83 career wins. "If you know me, I've been in this sport for a little bit and I usually let the results speak for itself, but I think today and this weekend and really leading up all this week it's been about this historical side from the African-American side". He was on a three-race top 5 streak going into Dover, where he also had a strong vehicle even after some early damage before finishing 16th.

"At that point, I threw it in third gear, and I was just trying to slow it down".

Brake issues on both cars led to wrecks on Turn 1, with Johnson colliding with the wall at over 125 miles per hour and McMurray's engulfed in flames. We had a loose wheel early and had to come back down after that, and we didn't have track position after that, and there [were so few] cautions here that you couldn't drive your way back up there unless you were just lights-out better than everybody else. "They just couldn't hear me". "It was really weird that we kind of both had the same thing happen at the same point on the racetrack, but fortunately, we are both OK". He said the problem in the No. 88 Chevrolet was shifting issues; he tried to go from third to fourth gear but the auto went to second.
