Dave Blaney Quotes:
ON RACING AT KENTUCKY– “Racing last year at Kentucky in the Cup Series was really good. The track is wide which makes for good racing. The track is a mile-and-a-half track, but it is quite a bit different than any other mile-and-a-half track. It is flatter, bumpier and a different shape than most. And, I’m really excited to watch Ryan get back to racing in the Nationwide Series this weekend.”
