NCWTS: Ryan Blaney Captures UNOH 200 Presented by ZLOOP Victory at Bristol
Ryan Blaney stole the show on Wednesday night at the Bristol Motor Speedway in the UNOH 200 presented by ZLOOP. Blaney started the night in the runner-up spot behind the wheel of the No. 29 Cooper Standard Ford.
After staying in the runner-up position, Blaney was popped for jumping the restart after the caution on lap 31 that forced the team to serve a pass through penalty under green. Caution would fly on lap 78 that would allow Blaney to get the free pass. Blaney got back on the lead lap and worked his way to the front.
A caution would fly once again on lap 195 that sent the race into over-time. This would bunch the field up once again and allow Blaney to make the pass around leader Matt Crafton. Crafton would lose seven positions after spinning his tires on the restart.
Pole sitter Kyle Busch will leave the Bristol Motor Speedway with the runner-up spot. Busch came into the weekend making his third start of the season in the series for his own racing team. The Las Vegas native will walk away with his third top 10 finish in three starts.
John Hunter Nemechek will walk away with his second top five finish of the season in his No. 8 Chevrolet. Nemechek had a smooth night as he started in the seventh position. The finish will give him his best so far in 2015.
Tyler Reddick continues to lead the series standings by six points over Matt Crafton. Erik Jones will leave the Bristol Motor Speedway sitting in third after a sixth-place finish. Johnny Sauter and Daniel Hemric round out the top five.
The NASCAR Camping World Series will head to Canada for some road course racing. Coverage will begin next Sunday on FOX Sports 1 at 1:30 p.m. ET. The Motor Racing Network will carry the live radio broadcast.
