Qualifying 39th for the race, Dave Blaney and the TBR crew had their work cut out for them.
At the drop of the green flag, Blaney began to maneuver his way through traffic but the leaders were closing. Losing a lap early is typically difficult to recover from on the half-mile track. However, with several quick cautions, Blaney was able to get one of his laps back and make adjustments to the car. Finishing out the race in 29th, Dave is currently 127 points behind leader Jimmie Johnson in the race for the Sprint Cup Championship. This week the TBR teams head to the circus, the Wild Asphalt Circus at Texas Motor Speedway.-140 BUZZ
