PLAYERS: Dave Blaney
Kansas City, KS – Leaving Kansas, Dave Blaney and the No. 7 SANY America team are definitely saying “there’s no place like home,” after an eventful weekend. An engine change on Saturday sent Blaney to the rear of the field, presenting a challenge for 267 laps of racing at Kansas Speedway. The new Earnhardt Ganassi Racing engine was ready as the green flag flew for Sunday’s STP 400. Blaney gained as much as 13 positions in the first 25 laps. After making steady progress to the front, suddenly Blaney hit the fence at Lap 39, the result of a blown tire. Heading to the garage to evaluate the severity of the damages, the team packed up for the afternoon upon sight of the damage to the entire right side of the car. Blaney and the No. 7 SANY America Chevy ended the race in 43rd position. Team Owner and Crew Chief Tommy Baldwin commented after the race, “This was a tough weekend for the SANY America team. We changed an engine and started from the rear of the field and started to gain a lot of track position when we blew a tire. After going to the garage we saw the extent of the damage and had to pack up for the day which is certainly not what we wanted or needed.” Dave is currently 187 points behind leader Jimmie Johnson in the race for the Sprint Cup Championship. This weekend we head to Richmond International Raceway for the Toyota Owners 400.
