JOLIET, Ill. – Dave Blaney started 42nd in the Tommy Baldwin Racing (TBR) No. 36 Chevrolet for Sunday’s GEICO 400. The TBR team worked on the handling of the Chevrolet but a clutch problem and engine failure ended the team’s day early. The No. 36 Chevrolet finished in 33rd place.
Blaney took the green flag from the 42nd position and quickly worked up to the 30th spot by lap three. He radioed that the car was pretty good and just a little loose off turn two. He fell back to the 33rd position by lap 17. The No. 36 Chevrolet held onto the position but fell a lap down to the leader on lap 38 as the loose condition worsened.
Crew Chief Tommy Baldwin called Blaney down pit road on lap 47 for a green-flag pit stop. The TBR team changed four tires and made a trackbar adjustment. The No. 36 Chevrolet returned to the track in the 33rd position, one lap down. NASCAR Officials called a debris caution on lap 67, and Baldwin elected to stay out on the track and get the wave around.
