Blaney handled the early pressure well, by qualifying his Reese Towpower Ford F-150 in the sixth starting spot for the main event Wednesday night. Blaney made his way up to third position by lap 10, gaining on the leaders each time by the start / finish line. On lap 47, Blaney came on the radio and said he was tight in and through the center, which prompted crew chief, Chad Kendrick, to start building out a pit road plan, knowing the first NASCAR mandatory caution would be on lap 60. Blaney battled hard all night in the top five with a fast Reese Towpower Truck, but slipped to a ninth place finish at the inaugural Mudsummer Classic, because of being too loose in the latter stages of the race. It was Blaney’s third time running against his son, Ryan, and the first in a NASCAR national series. Primary sponsor, Reese Towpower, along with a sold out gathering of fans at Eldora speedway came out to watch history be made. The No. 19 BKR team now sits 10th in the NCWTS owner points standings, 75 points back from first. Dave Blaney on his race: ”What a cool experience to share with my son. My team was awesome; we had a fast Reese Towpower F-150 all night, but just got too loose late in the going. I love coming out to Eldora and racing here, it’s a special place, but tonight was certainly one for the memory books. I really appreciate Brad Keselowski and Reese Towpower for giving me the opportunity to race for them.” -Brad Keselowski Racing PR
