Even though the Motorcraft/Quick Lane Ford Fusion has been fast at each of the four tracks on which it has raced so far this season, the results have been up and down. The Wood Brothers Racing Team is looking to rebound from a down week in Phoenix when it travels to Fontana for the Auto Club 400 this weekend.
Still in sixth place in the driver standings by virtue of his runner-up finish at Daytona, seventh-place result in Las Vegas and the ability to score points in six of eight race stages, driver Ryan Blaney and his team feel like they left something on the table at Atlanta (18th) and Phoenix (23rd).
Last year, in his only career race at Auto Club Speedway, Blaney’s Ford blew a tire on the 195th of 205 laps and the ensuing encounter with the wall ended his day in 35th place.
“Fontana was a good race track for us last year and had a good run going before our blown tire. I’m looking forward to going back with another strong car and improving on last year’s result.”
