Playoff contender Ryan Blaney posted the fastest lap in the final round of practice for the Can Am 500 and will lead the field to green on Sunday.

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.

Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series regular Ryan Blaney, driving the No. 22 Discount Tire Ford Mustang, led the first practice session for the XFINITY Series Ticket Galaxy 200 at Phoenix Int’l Raceway in Avondale, AZ.

The lap of 131.368 mph was the best of the 37 cars completing laps in this session. No. 7 Justin Allgaier, No. 19 Matt Tifft, No. 9 William Byron and No. 23 Spencer Gallagher made up the rest of the top-five on the speed chart. The No. 74 Dodge, driven by Mike Harmon, was the slowest.

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.
Nov 5 - 7:22 PM

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.

Blaney is strong on similarly-configured, 1.5-mile tracks and that makes him a good value for his price. Blaney could even be a surprise winner.
Nov 4 - 7:12 PM

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.

Ryan Blaney will not get to pick his pit stall until the very end of the selection process, following a penalty at Kansas Speedway last week.

Blaney is one of the drivers outside of the top four in the playoffs as round three begins. Blaney is not great at Martinsville and he is going to be behind the eight ball during the race, but with some strategy he could still manage to get a top-10. And while Blaney is not great on this track, the Wood Bros. are.

Ryan Blaney finished third in the Hollywood Casino in Kansas Speedway after starting 40th.

That means he added 37 place differential points to his total and as predicted he was one of the best values in the game. Blaney advanced to round three of the playoffs with this run.
Oct 22 - 7:26 PM

Ryan Blaney posted the fastest single lap in Happy Hour practice for the Hollywood Casino 400 with a speed of 182.057 mph.

Starting 40th, Blaney has a long way to come to the front, but he is going to earn place differential points. Given his cap, he is going to be one of the best values this week.

During a restart with 10 laps remaining, Ryan Blaney became the eighth playoff contender to get involved in an accident at Talladega SuperSpeedway.

After surviving the first Big One crash, Blaney had an opportunity to make up some ground in the points. The plate tracks are certainly unpredictable and this is one reason to spread the wealth around in Fantasy NASCAR.
Oct 15 - 6:06 PM

Ryan Blaney struggled early in the Bank of America 500, but managed to keep his playoff hopes alive with an eighth-place finish at Charlotte Motor Speedway.

The knock on Blaney this season has been inconsistency, but he now has three results of eighth through 11th in the past four races. Unfortunately, the field rolls into Talladega SuperSpeedway next week and that track does not respect momentum in the slightest.
