Blaney Leaves Auto Club Speedway With A Top-25 Finish


Going into this weekend at Fontana, California, Dave Blaney and the No. 7 SANY America Chevy SS, knew that the long race that awaited at Auto Club Speedway would be a challenge. After last week's disappointing end to Bristol, the goal was simple - finish the race. By that mark, Dave Blaney overachieved.

After qualifying 29th on Friday, the Tommy Baldwin Racing crew went to work during Saturday's practice sessions, making adjustments for race day.

At the drop of the green flag Sunday, Blaney began the climb to the front with the No. 7 SANY America Chevy SS. Moving all the way up to 18th, Blaney and his team were making adjustments to the car at every stop as they worked to dial in the handling to Blaney's comfort. The long green flag runs did not play in their favor, causing Blaney to go a lap down half way through the 400 mile race. On lap 121, Blaney took the wave around, and was back on the lead lap. With only 79 laps left, the charge to the front had to happen. After several single car cautions, new tires, and fuel, this gave Blaney the opportunity to move up to 21st, where he ended up finishing at the end of the race.

After the race team owner and crew chief Tommy Baldwin commented, "We are happy leaving here with a 21st place finish for the SANY America team. We fought all day and finally started to get somewhere at the end of the race. With a couple more laps we could have gotten a top-15 finish, no questions. Frustrating day, but great work by all the guys here at TBR."
