Ryan Blaney could not repeat Trevor Bayne’s feat of winning his first Daytona 500 in his first start with the Wood Bros. Last year, he finished 39th with a blown engine, but he could still be a surprisingly good value. In four starts on plate tracks, he has a best finish of fourth in last year’s GEICO 500.
Blaney will be moderately priced in the 500 and that could make him a hidden gem. In three starts on plate tracks in his current ride he has developed engine problems twice, however, and that could make him a dangerous pick. Feb 4 - 12:11 PM

Ryan Blaney had the second-worst place-differential on average in 2015 with a loss of nearly 11 positions to finish with a 25.31. Only part time driver Erik Jones was worse with a -15.33 in three starts.

As a part time driver, Blaney had to focus on qualification every week in order to make the show. His average start of 14.5 made him attractive on several occasions, but engine failures and wrecks meant that he was unable to live up to expectations more often than not. When he got to the end of a race unscathed, he was able to score a top-five at Talladega SuperSpeedway, another top-10 at Kansas Speedway, and a total of six top-20 finishes in 16 starts.

Blaney, who competed in 13 of the season's 33 races, scored two wins (Iowa Speedway on August 1st and Kentucky Speedway on September 26th), nine top-fives, 10 top-10s and closed out the season 22nd in the final 2015 XFINITY Series driver championship standings.

Ryan Blaney was one of four drivers of the No. 22 Team Penske Ford Mustang responsible for earning the 2015 XFINITY Series (NXS) owners championship for Roger Penske.

This is Team Penske’s third consecutive NXS owners championship; Roger Penske has become just the second owner in NXS history to win three consecutive owner titles joining William Baumgardner (1995-1997). Penske won the 2013 NNS owner title with drivers (starts): Brad Keselowski (15 races), Joey Logano (14), AJ Allmendinger (two) and Ryan Blaney (two). Last season the No. 22 captured the title with drivers: Brad Keselowski (10 races), Joey Logano (10), Ryan Blaney (10), Michael McDowell (one) and Alex Tagliani (two). This season Penske won the title with Brad Keselowski (9), Joey Logano (11), Ryan Blaney (13) and Alex Tagliani (1).-NASCAR

The Wood Bros. will run fulltime in 2016, according to NBC’s Dustin Long. Ryan Blaney will pilot the No. 21.

This will make the No. 21 a better value during the season because the driver and team are incentivized to run until the end of the race. Blaney will be a much more consistent value next year.

XFINITY Series (#22 Ford Mustang) driver Ryan Blaney finished third in Friday night's NASCAR Camping World Truck Series WinStar World Casino & Resort 350 at the Texas Motor Speedway.

Started the #29 Cooper Standard Careers for Veterans Ford F-150 15th in the lineup and completed all of the 147 laps run. Blaney, who also drives the Wood Brothers #21 Ford in the Sprint Cup Series, is not eligible to collect points in this series.

Brad Keselowski Racing announced today that Ryan Blaney will drive the team's No. 29 Cooper Standard Careers For Veterans Ford F-150 in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race Nov. 6 at Texas Motor Speedway while Austin Cindric will be behind the wheel of the No. 29 Cooper Standard Ford F-150 Nov. 13 at Phoenix (Avondale, Ariz.) International Raceway.

The team remains optimistic that Austin Theriault will return to the No. 29 in the season ending race at Homestead-Miami (Fla.) Speedway on Nov. 20. Blaney will be making his fifth NCWTS start of the season and after winning the Aug. 19 race at Bristol Motor Speedway in his most recent start.-BKR

Ryan Blaney earned his second career top-10 at Kansas Speedway. He finished seventh after qualifying eighth for the Hollywood Casino 400.

This is Blaney’s second consecutive top-10 on a similarly-configured, 1.5-mile track following his 14th last week at Charlotte Motor Speedway.

Ryan Blaney was the top qualified non-Chase driver for the Hollywood Casino 400 at Kansas Speedway. His third round speed was 194.363 mph, which puts him eighth on the charts.

Blaney was even faster in the second round with a lap of 195.164 that put him at the top of the chart. Blaney is coming off a solid top-15 from Charlotte Motor Speedway and should be treated as a top fantasy choice in most games.

Ryan Blaney was notably fast on both the five- and 10-lap average speed chart. He was eighth-best on the five-lap average and fifth-best in terms of 10-lap averages.

Blaney is a great way to stretch one’s salary cap in most games. The Wood Bros. have blown engines in their last two races on similarly-configured, 1.5-mile tracks, however, and that remains a concern for fantasy owners.

Ryan Blaney (No. 22 Discount Tire Ford Mustang) won the VisitMyrtleBeach.com 300, his fourth victory in 41 NASCAR XFINITY Series races.

This is his second victory and eighth top-10 finish in 2015. It is his second victory and fourth top-10 finish in five races at Kentucky Speedway. Blaney started fifth in the lineup and led a race-high 81 laps in the 201-lap event.

Ryan Blaney, Michael McDowell, and Travis Kvapil did not get a chance to qualify when rain canceled Friday’s time trials.

Make certain these drivers are not on your roster. Specifically Blaney was one of the most popular drivers based on his practice speeds.

Ryan Blaney needed to qualify on time and he easily accomplished that feat. With a speed of 176.195 mph, he posted the ninth fastest lap and will start with the leaders for Sunday’s Southern 500 at Darlington Raceway.

As a part time driver, Blaney’s salary cap remains low. If the choice comes down to him or Chase Elliott, Blaney’s qualification effort exceeds the other Young Gun’s 13 positions and that could keep him out of trouble early.

Ryan Blaney is one of the drivers needing to qualify on time if he wants to race in the Bojangles' Southern 500 and he seems to be in pretty good shape. At the end of the first practice session, he wound up eighth on the chart wedged between Joey Logano and Denny Hamlin.

As a part time driver, Blaney could be one of the best dark horses of the weekend. He was 14th on the final practice charts 30 minutes into the session.
