Race Rundown: Ryan Blaney started 11th and finished 18th in Sunday’s NASCAR Cup Series race at New Hampshire Motor Speedway. The driver of Menards/Libman Ford Mustang tried to overcome an ill-handling car and a mid-race spin on Sunday. Blaney and the No. 12 Ford team spent a good portion of the race working to overcome a tight-handling condition on the Menards/Libman Mustang. After making significant adjustments to the No. 12 Ford, Blaney spun on Lap 147. The Menards/Libman crew made repairs to the Ford Mustang and Blaney fought back to bring home an 18th-place finish.

Blaney’s Thoughts: “It was a rough day for our Menards/Libman Ford. We struggled with the balance and spun midway in the race. Certainly, wasn’t the result we wanted but we’ll look toward Pocono next week.”
