PLAYERS: Dave Blaney
Dave Blaney and the No. 7 Florida Lottery Chevrolet SS team will return from Daytona International Speedway feeling like a winner after a 17th-place finish in the Great American Race. Veteran crew chief and team owner Tommy Baldwin, Jr. was back on top of the pit box as Sunday's race marked the first in which he would be the crew chief on the No. 7. Together with Blaney, the two hit their strides to develop a strategy to be in contention when the checkered flag flew. Blaney fought a loose condition after taking fuel only during the third caution of the day, but neither Baldwin nor Blaney called for any adjustments throughout the race. He was happiest with his car after four-tire stops, in which he would be quiet over the radio. As the laps wound down and the action on the track built up, he chose to ride around on the bottom lane to avoid any incidents. In the end, the strategy worked, and he brought the No. 7 home in 17th. "The Florida Lottery Chevrolet SS was really fast in the draft today," said Blaney. "Any time you can leave here with a top-20 finish and a racecar in one piece, it's a pretty good feeling." TBR PR
