Mooresville, NC – Coming off of another Top-25 finish this season, Dave Blaney and the No. 7 SANY America team head to Talladega Superspeedway this weekend for some good ole plate racing. Blaney’s history at Talladega: Blaney has 22 starts at the 2.66 mile Superspeedway. He’s finished 3rd twice in 2007 and 2011, with an average finish of 26th. Blaney on Talladega: “I am looking forward to heading to Talladega this weekend. We have had some pretty good races in the past and as we all know, restrictor plate racing is a bit of a game of chance. I’m hopeful we get lucky and pull off a good finish for this No. 7 SANY Chevy.” Crew Chief/Team Owner Tommy Baldwin on Talladega: “Talladega is a challenging track for many reasons – the high speeds, use of restrictor plates and now the new Gen 6 car leave us with little notes to work with. Then again, it is Talladega and anything can and will happen, our game plan is to be prepared and stay focused.” Blaney by the numbers: Heading into ‘Dega, Dave Blaney is currently 29th in the NASCAR Sprint Cup points standings. Did you know?: Dave’s career best finish is a trio of third place – two of those finishes came at Talladega and the other at Darlington.
