CHASSIS NO. 304 – Blaney will drive chassis No. 304. The chassis was recently purchased from Richard Childress Racing and will be making its debut for the team.

Dave Blaney On Chicagoland: “I’m looking forward to this weekend. We are running a new chassis we just bought from RCR, so hopefully, we can make a stride forward with that. The Chase starts this weekend too. I like watching to see how it unfolds. I really like the format. The first few weeks each team has a chance to put themselves in the hunt for the title. So, it should be a good weekend.”
