Blaney Quietly Optimistic Heading To Richmond

Heading into the seventh race of the NASCAR Cup Series season Sunday at Richmond (Va.) Raceway, the contending drivers and teams are beginning to separate themselves from the pack. “I think it will be better at Richmond than Phoenix because Phoenix is pretty fast and Richmond you’re going a lot slower, tires wear out a lot more, so hopefully that helps it out,” Blaney said. While Richmond demands a short, technical approach compared to the higher speeds of Phoenix, Blaney believes Team Penske’s short track setup is a good baseline for the season. “Basing it off of Phoenix, I thought our short-track program was pretty decent,” Blaney said. The 4 (Kevin Harvick) was good there at the end before the last caution, so I think it’s OK. Phoenix is a little bit different. “Hopefully, we learned a little bit from Phoenix that we can apply over to Richmond and keep building on that race track.
