The Motorcraft/Quick Lane Racing team is looking to bounce back from its mid-race wreck at Kentucky Speedway last Saturday with a strong showing at this Sunday’s New Hampshire 301 at New Hampshire Motor Speedway in Loudon.
The accident, which also collected fellow Sunoco NASCAR Rookie of the Year contender Chase Elliott, pushed Blaney down three spots – from 15th to 18th – in the driver points standings. He currently is 24 points out of 16th place, which would qualify him for the Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup starting Sept. 18 in Chicago.
In his two previous visits to Loudon, Blaney started 16th and finished 23rd in the July race last season and in 2014 he started 12th and finished 10th in the Camping World Truck Series race at the track.
“Loudon was good for us last year. We made some mistakes late and hurt us in the end but going back I think we have a good notebook to improve.”
