Ryan Blaney crashed along with Kurt Busch in the run to the white flag, but sustained minimal damage and claimed a seventh-place finish in the Daytona 500 at Daytona International Speedway.

Blaney slapped the wall and flattened the right side of his Ford, but he led 114 laps before that late-race incident. That made him the top points' earner in most fantasy games and insured that he will stay relevant for weeks to come. Look for Team Penske to be a powerhouse again in 2018 like they were in 2016.

Ryan Blaney and Kurt Busch got together in the run to the white flag and triggered an eight-car Big One in the Daytona 500.

Blaney led 114 laps, which was the first time since 2005 that a driver led more than 100 circuits. Tony Stewart was the last to do so. Busch's car was destroyed; Blaney pancacked the right hand side of his car, but continued on. With the accident at the front of the field, most of the cars involved had a shot at winning.

Ryan Blaney took the lead just before the final restart of the Gatorade Duel 1 and held off his teammate Joey Logano to win the 150-mile race at Daytona International Speedway.

Blaney’s win comes in his first major race with his new Penske team. He played the role of teammate when he needed to and was "selfish" when it mattered. Blaney will now line up third for the Daytona 500.

Ryan Blaney bested the field with a 45.090 lap during Saturday practice for the Advance Auto Parts Clash (The Clash) at Daytona International Speedway (DIS).

Saturday morning's practice session saw drivers and teams mostly focused on how they’ll run while drafting. The Ford cars, especially Penske-owned, were the most successful in the pack. Fords swept the top-four led by Penske new-comer Blaney. The no. 12 car only made it out for 21 laps of practice, the least out of the top-five but in his shorten run Blaney managed to hit the top speed of 199.601. Blaney’s new teammates Joey Logano and Brad Keselowski finished second and fourth with Roush Fenway driver Ricky Stenhouse Jr. caught in the middle.

Blaney is within reach of the Brad Keselowski in terms of points and winning the pole was an important step in that direction. He should be able to earn bonus points at the end of round one while the driver of the No. 2 could struggle to get into the top 10 after starting outside the top 15.

Ryan Blaney scored his fourth top-10 in the past five races when he crossed under the checkers sixth in the AAA Texas 500 at Texas Motor Speedway.

Blaney is putting himself in a position to advance to the Championship Four, and while it is likely going to take a win next week to qualify, Blaney has been one of the best values in the game as he makes his determined charge.

Ryan Blaney posted a lap of 190.691 mph in Happy Hour, which was the third fastest time in the AAA Texas 500 at Texas Motor Speedway field.

Ryan Blaney posted the fastest single lap Friday’s practice for the AAA Texas 500 at Texas Motor Speedway with a speed of 199.933 mph.

Blaney ran better than expected at Martinsville Speedway last week and he made up some ground in the points. Another solid run this week—even if it is not a win—could put him in a position to advance to finale. Blaney will likely stay out of trouble on Sunday and post a solid top-10.

Ryan Blaney finished eighth in the First Data 500 after starting fourth at Martinsville Speedway.

Blaney did what he needed to do. He gained a lot of points while one of the top three drivers won. The battle for the fourth position is going to be intense, especially if one of the drivers below him wins in the next two weeks. In order to be part of the championship chase, he is going to need to be perfect in the next two weeks.
