Tommy Baldwin Racing (TBR) will return Bristol Motor Speedway for the second NASCAR Sprint Cup Series (NSCS) race this season. Dave Blaney will maneuver the re-vamped .533-mile track in the No. 36 SealWrap Chevrolet in Saturday’s IRWIN Tools Night Race.

TBR AT BRISTOL MOTOR SPEEDWAY – TBR made four starts at BMS in the past two years. Blaney made three of the team’s starts at BMS. David Reutimann posted the team’s best start of 19th place and finish of 21st place in this season’s March race.

BLANEY AT BRISTOL MOTOR SPEEDWAY – Blaney will make his 23rd NASCAR Sprint Cup Series (NSCS) start at BMS this weekend. The Buckeye Bullet has five top-five and eight top-10 starts. His best start of second came in the spring race in 2005. He collected his best finish of 14th in the fall of 2006.

CHASSIS NO. 293 – Blaney will drive the No. 293 chassis, which he drove six times this season and five times during the 2011 season. The Harford, Ohio native’s best start with the No. 293 chassis was 17th at Richmond and best finish was 23rd at Phoenix this season. TBR purchased the chassis from Richard Childress Racing, where Jeff Burton drove the chassis prior to its debut with TBR.

IN THE POINTS – The No. 36 Chevrolet is currently in 35th place in NSCS Owner Points. The team is ahead of the No. 33 Chevrolet in 36th position by 88 points and trails the No. 32 by 35 points. Blaney is in 34th place in NSCS Driver Points. He is ahead of David Stremme by 125 points and behind teammate David Reutimann by 16 points.

Dave Blaney on Bristol: “The Bristol night race is always one of the coolest races of the year. I’m thrilled to have SealWrap back on the car for such a big race. I really liked the track with progressive banking. It’s hard to tell whether the revamp will make a little or huge difference. I’m definitely looing forward to seeing the change. I’m excited to watch Ryan in both the Truck Series and Nationwide races this weekend. They will be fun to watch.”
