Ryan Blaney became the third first time winner and returned the Wood Bros. to Victory Lane for the first time since Trevor Bayne won the 2011 Daytona 500 when he crossed under the checkers first in the Axalta Presents the Pocono 400.

Blaney had Kevin Harvick breathing down his neck for the final 10 laps after Blaney passed Kyle Busch for the lead. He could easily have made a minor mistake to allow the No. 4 around, but kept his composure. Blaney becomes the 10th unique winner of 2017, which is going to tighten up the playoff battle considerably.

Ryan Blaney has a current six-race, top-20 streak going on similarly-configured, 1.5-mile tracks with a worst result of 18th at Atlanta in the Folds of Honor QuikTrip 500 this spring.

Blaney has finished worse than he started in all of those races, but two of his last three efforts have been promising. He led the field to green last week at Kansas Speedway and lost only three positions before the end to finish fourth. At Las Vegas Motor Speedway in March, he started third and dropped four positions to seventh, so he should contend for a top-10 this week in the Coke 600.

Ryan Blaney led the field to green, stayed with the leaders throughout the GoBowling.com 400, and finished fourth at Kansas Speedway.

Blaney used up a lot of the good on his tires trying to pass the No. 78, but was a great value with his top-five finish.

Ryan Blaney won the pole for the GoBowling.com 400 with a speed of 189.600 mph. This is his first career pole, but the fourth time he will start on the front row this year

Blaney made his Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series start on this track in 2014 and qualified 21st. He experienced a hub problem and lost four laps in that race. He’s experienced trouble in his last three starts this year—including once at Richmond when he qualified on the outside pole. If he can stay out of trouble, however, this should preface a solid top-five finish.
