Darlington Raceway 500
Locked into the Showtime Southern 500, Tommy Baldwin Racing (TBR) will head to Darlington Raceway with the ability to focus solely on race day for the first time in team history. Dave Blaney looks to ride momentum and drive the No. 36 Golden Corral Chevrolet to another solid finish in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series (NSCS).
CHASSIS NO. 910 – The Golden Corral team will run chassis No. 910 this weekend. Blaney drove this chassis at both Texas and California this season. The team finished 30th at Texas and 37th at California.
IN THE POINTS – The TBR team broke into the top-35 of NSCS Owner Points for the first time since the team’s inception in 2009. A 13th-place finish at Richmond International Raceway last weekend propelled the team to 34th in NSCS Owner Points, four points ahead of the 35th spot. Blaney moved up a position to 32nd in NSCS Driver Points.
Dave Blaney Quotes: ON DARLINGTON – “I’m excited to go to Darlington. Our team has a lot of momentum right now, and Darlington has always been one of my favorite tracks because of its history and uniqueness. Everybody has to change their driving style to be successful there. You race to not make mistakes on the racetrack instead of racing other people. There will be guys hitting the wall all weekend. You just have to take care of your car all weekend and not get excited to early.”
