We were able to sit down and chat with Ryan Blaney on Monday morning about his week in Kentucky.
Ryan challenged Kyle Busch for the lead during the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race, and brought home a top five finish in both the truck series and the Nationwide series.
Dale Earnhardt’s win in Pocono last week marked his second win this season, it also marks the first time in ten years that Dale Jr. has had more than one win in a season.
With about ten-ta-go!, Dale Jr. laid the hammer down and passed Brad Keselowski who was having and issue with a piece of debris on the front of his car at the time. The 88 took full advantage of the situation, got to the front and was able to pedal the throttle once the nose of his Chevy has some clean air to to breath.
Restarts were downright crazy, as we saw the pack go 4 and 5 wide in an attempt to gain track position. It seemed as though if you could get your car out front, it was hard for the cars that were behind you in the dirty air to gain ground and pass.
The boys will be in Michigan this weekend which also happens to be a track that Dale Jr. runs very well at. I wouldn’t be surprised to see the 88 get a back-to-back win this weekend.
