Tommy Baldwin Racing and the No. 7 SANY America Chevy SS pulled into Martinsville Speedway Friday morning after a two week break from racing. As soon as the team unloaded they went to work on car, making adjustments and preparing for practice and qualifying. Qualifying 39th for the race, Blaney and the TBR crew had their work cut out for them. Brakes and tires have always proven to be the biggest challenge at the half-mile track in Virginia. At the drop of the green flag, Blaney began to maneuver his way through traffic but the leaders were closing. Losing a lap early is typically difficult to recover from on the half-mile track. However, with several quick cautions, Blaney was able to get one of his laps back and make adjustments to the car. Finishing out the race in 29th, Baldwin commented, “I know this is not the finish that you were hoping for, but we’re coming home with a whole racecar, and that’s more than most of the teams can say after today. We’re going to go home and get ready for next weekend at Texas. We will do whatever we have to do, I know this team’s hard work will pay off in the end. Great job boys.” Dave is currently 127 points behind leader Jimmie Johnson in the race for the Sprint Cup Championship. This week the TBR teams head to the circus, the Wild Asphalt Circus at Texas Motor Speedway.
