Race Rundown: Ryan Blaney started 11th and finished 29th in Sunday night’s Coca-Cola 600 at Charlotte Motor Speedway in the No. 12 BODYARMOR Ford Mustang. In the opening stage, Blaney struggled with a tight condition and early in the race took a setback with a pit road speeding penalty. Despite the penalty, Blaney drove back inside the top-10 by the end of the opening 100-lap stage, finishing sixth. In the third stage, Blaney was collected in a multi-vehicle incident which forced the No. 12 BODYARMOR team to retire from the event at lap 195.

Blaney’s Thoughts: “I was tucked up tight behind the 8 and he was kind of lower than I thought on the frontstretch and kind of ran through the turf, and then got to one and jerked right and I think he was up behind the 99 and thinking he was going to hit the apron and I didn’t have time to kind of get right and I just kind of hit the apron and got me loose.  I hate that other cars got torn up.  I just didn’t really know where I was at being close to him and you kind of see that sometimes.  I just hate that it tore us up”
