Ryan Blaney and the Motorcraft/Quick Lane Racing team have returned the Wood Brothers to consistent competitiveness during the 2017 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series season. During Sunday night’s Coca-Cola 600, they will be trying to resurrect the dominance once displayed by the team at Charlotte Motor Speedway.
Between the autumns of 1973 and 1979, Wood Brothers drivers David Pearson and Neil Bonnett combined to win every pole contested at the track. Pearson added three wins during that span. Kyle Petty was the last driver to bring the No. 21 to victory lane in Charlotte. That took place in the 1987 Coca-Cola 600.
Motorcraft/Quick Lane Ford Fusion has run strong at Charlotte the last two years although that hasn’t been reflected in the final stat sheet.
This week, the team plans to continue its trend of unloading fast race cars, its improved qualifying efforts and its lightning-quick pit work to run with the leaders.
