This season the team competed at nine events at 1.5-mile racetracks and improved the program from last season. Most recently, Blaney drove the No. 36 Chevrolet at the 1.5-mile Atlanta Motor Speedway where he started from the 22nd position and finished in 25th place.

BLANEY AT CHICAGO – Blaney made nine starts at Chicagoland Speedway in his NSCS career. He scored his best start of seventh in 2002. He tallied his best finish of 12th place in 2001. Last season, he drove from the 39th starting spot to a 33rd-place finish.

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.”
