In terms of career average finishes, Richmond Raceway ranks as Ryan Blaney’s worst track with a 30.3 in four starts.

Blaney’s career is still in its infancy, so there is still plenty of time for these numbers to change and Richmond may not always be his worst track. The fact remains that he has not yet cracked the top 15 there, however, and three of his four results landed outside the top 25.

Ryan Blaney has finished 12th or better in seven consecutive races on similarly-configured, 1.5-mile tracks.

Blaney’s seven top-12s on similarly-configured, 1.5-mile tracks are split fairly evenly among top-fives, -10s, and results just outside that mark. Given his expense in most salary cap games and his fifth-place finish at Las Vegas Motor Speedway, he may well be the top value among the Team Penske drivers.

At the beginning of the season, we had some concerns about Ryan Blaney settling into his new Team Penske ride, but with only one finish worse than 12th in his first six attempts, those concerns are gone.

Blaney stumbled at Ingenuity Sun Media Raceway (Phoenix) where both of his teammates also struggled. The organization has regularly placed all of their drivers in the top 10 and should be considered as much a threat as Stewart-Haas Racing and Joe Gibbs Racing.

Ryan Blaney won segment two of the STP 500 at Martinsville Speedway, but lost just a little in the final stage and finished third.

Blaney was not highly valued at the start of the race because he had only one top-five to his credit in his first six races on the track. This underscores just how stout the Team Penske program is and it increases Blaney’s value for the remainder of the season.

Ryan Blaney dominated the second segment of the STP 500 at Martinsville Speedway and captured his second stage win of the season.

Blaney had only one top-10 at Martinsville before this race, so he was predicted to finish just outside the top 10 in this week’s Cheat Sheets. There is still a long way to go.
