Erik Jones Finishes 12th At Dover

Erik Jones
Erik Jones battled an ill-handling No. 77 SiriusXM Toyota throughout Sunday’s Apache Warrior 400 at Dover International Speedway but his determination paid off with a well-earned 12th-place finish.

Jones maintained 19th place in the NASCAR Cup Series point standings after 29 races. His 728 points is 13 behind Joey Logano in 18th and 22 behind Clint Bowyer in 17th. He is 75 points ahead of Daniel Suarez in 20th.

“The SiriusXM Toyota was always way too tight firing off regardless of what we did,” said Jones. “Just a frustrating day. I had to chase it up the hill in the turns all day. It was like I was skiing on the track all day. Just frustrating. Somehow we were able to salvage a 12th-place finish out of it.”

Jones lined up on the outside of Row 5 for the start of the 400-mile race. The handling of the 77 SiriusXM Toyota was tight from the green flag and stayed that way throughout the first two stages despite numerous chassis and air pressure adjustments. Jones was scored 17th at the conclusion of Stage 1 and 11th after Stage 2.

Quick work by the Furniture Row Racing pit crew put Jones back on track 10th to start the final stage on Lap 249. He maintained that position until lead cars began to pit under caution on Lap 320.

Jones cycled out in 12th place after a final green-flag stop on Lap 334 set the stage for run to the checkered flag.

The handling issues continued throughout the balance of the event. Jones maintained his position to take the checkered flag 12th.

The race winner was Kyle Busch. Rounding out the top 10 were: Chase Elliott, Jimmie Johnson, Truex, Kyle Larson, Clint Bowyer, Dale Earnhardt Jr., Daniel Suarez, Jamie McMurray and Brad Keselowski.

The race had four cautions for 24 laps and a red flag for nearly 16 minutes. There were 15 lead changes among six drivers.

Truex Fought For A Fourth Place Finish At Dover

Martin Truex, Jr.
Martin Truex Jr. earned a hard-fought fourth-place finish as he continued his playoff consistency Sunday in the Apache Warrior 400 at Dover International Speedway.

Truex, who started from the pole and led three times for 51 laps in his No. 78 Furniture Row/Denver Mattress Toyota, had some handling issues that prevented him from chasing down the leader.

“We were off a bit today,” said Truex. “The short-run, long-run speed weren’t quite there and the balance of the Furniture Row/Denver Mattress Toyota shifted way too much. I thought maybe we should have been second or third, but that last run just really went away on us. It is what it is. When you run fourth and you’re disappointed it shows what your team is made of. Proud of everyone, they did a good job all weekend.”

The good news for Truex is that he enters the next round of the playoffs first in points – 3059, an 18-point lead over second place Kyle Busch. The three playoff races in the Round of 12 will be at Charlotte Motor Speedway (Oct. 8), Talladega Superspeedway (Oct. 15) and Kansas Speedway (Oct. 22). The top eight drivers will advance to the next round. (see points standings below)

Truex completed the first round of the playoffs with a 3.3 finishing average, the best finishing average among the 16 playoff drivers. His fourth-place Dover finish was preceded with a victory at Chicagoland Speedway (Sept.  17) and a fifth in New Hampshire (Sept. 24).

“I am looking forward to the next round and feel good about where this Furniture Row Racing team is at right now,” said Truex, a five-time winner on the NASCAR Cup Series circuit this season. “We just need to maintain our consistency.”

The Apache Warrior 400 winner was Kyle Busch. Rounding out the top 10 were: Chase Elliott, Jimmie Johnson, Truex, Kyle Larson, Clint Bowyer, Dale Earnhardt Jr., Daniel Suarez, Jamie McMurray and Brad Keselowski.

The race had four cautions for 24 laps plus a red flag for nearly 16 minutes. There were 15 lead changes among six drivers.

It Surely Wasn’t Pretty For Blaney At Dover

Ryan Blaney
It wasn’t pretty for Ryan Blaney and the No. 21 Motorcraft/Quick Lane team in Sunday’s Apache Warrior 400 at Dover International Speedway, but it was mission accomplished as they will advance to the Monster Energy Cup Playoff Round of 12 despite a 23rd-place finish.

Blaney qualified 11th but struggled from the start with an ill-handling car.

He had dropped to 20th place by Lap 63, but the real setback came just after he made his first green-flag pit stop.

Before the cycle of pit stops could be completed, Jeffrey Earnhardt struck the barrels at the end of pit road, bringing out the caution flag and trapping Blaney two laps behind the leaders who hadn’t stopped at that point.

Blaney regained one lap but was never able to get back the second, even as the Motorcraft/Quick Lane team worked on his car during pit stops and improved its handling.

Although Blaney remained in position to advance to the second round of the playoffs throughout the race, there were some anxious moments in the final laps as the rear gear temperature rose to a problematic level.

But the No. 21 Motorcraft/Quick Lane Fusion showed its durability as Blaney nursed the car to the checkered flag.

That put him among the 12 drivers who will advance to the second playoff round, which begins next week at Charlotte Motor Speedway.

“It is definitely not the day we wanted, and we got trapped a lap down early, didn’t fire off very good,” Blaney said. “At least we got our car a little better the last 100 laps or so, but then we had an issue and I had to take it easy toward the end.”

But, in the bigger, playoff picture, all was good in the end.

Team co-owner Eddie Wood commended his young driver for showing great poise in a difficult situation.

“We didn’t have the best car, but Ryan took what he had and made it to the second round of the playoffs,” Wood said. “He didn’t put himself in any bad spots, and he realized that it wasn’t about gaining positions, it was about making it to the end of the race.”

Blaney said that with the first playoff round behind him, he’s looking forward not only to the upcoming race at Charlotte but also to Kansas Speedway and Talladega Superspeedway, the other two tracks in the Round of 12.

“I think the tracks just play into our favor,” he said. “We are really fast at 1.5-mile race tracks and had a good run at Kansas earlier, and [on] speedways we run great.

“Charlotte, we had a broken axle earlier this year but we were pretty decent in that race before that happened. The 1.5-mile tracks seem to be our strong suit, and hopefully we can keep that up and keep making that our strong suit.”

Blaney enters the Round of 12 in ninth place in the standings with 3,008 points.

We might have finished 10th here today. The wreck last week really put us in a hole. We needed a perfect day today and playoff stage points. We just really never did well in Stage 1, and I thought that it might be our Achilles heel. If we add up the numbers (that’s) probably where it was. I can’t fault anybody. We ran hard. We gave it everything we had.”

It Is Good To Be On Top

Martin Truex, Jr.
What’s it like to come to the race track knowing you’ll have one of the fastest cars every single week—even at venues that historically haven’t been your best?

Martin Truex Jr. now knows the answer to that question. The driver of the No. 78 Furniture Row Racing Toyota has enjoyed a dream season in 2017, winning a series-best five times and pacing the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series in laps led (1,835), stages won (19) and Playoff points accumulated (59).

Truex got a taste of success last year when he won four races and led 1,809 laps, but the surfeit of strong finishes hasn’t dulled his appetite for more.

And at this point, he seems to have inherited the expectation of speed from seven-time champion Jimmie Johnson, who was the dominant force in stock car racing from 2006 through 2010, when he won five of his titles in consecutive years.

Truex, on the other hand, won three races in his first 10 full seasons of Cup racing, before his pairing with crew chief Cole Pearn at Furniture Row Racing provided the critical mass for a meteoric ascent to the top of the sport.

And Truex is enjoying the view.

“I actually think I’ve talked to Jimmie about this before, you know, years ago at Champion’s Week or something,” Truex said. “I think every driver thinks about it at this level when you get here. It takes so many things to come together to be in a position that I’ve been in the past two years really, so, yeah, I’m very thankful and I’m definitely enjoying it.

“I’m trying to enjoy every single week one at a time. At the same time, there’s that chance at a championship out there, so you can’t lose focus and say, ‘Well, this is going great. We’re just going to show up to the track and everything is going to be fine.’ You still have to work hard. It’s still difficult.”

Truex underscored the importance of keeping his eye on the larger prize.

Kyle Busch Is Having A Breakout Year

Kyle Busch
Before this year, Kyle Busch had never won more than three Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series poles in a single season.

Then the floodgates opened in 2017.

Busch has become the top qualifier in the series with eight Coors Light Pole Awards this season, but the success was hardly instantaneous. The driver of the No. 18 Joe Gibbs Racing Toyota didn’t win his first 2017 pole until the 13th race of the season, at Dover International Speedway.

Including that event, Busch has topped qualifying for eight of the last 17 races. On Friday afternoon, he narrowly missed a sweep of Dover poles this year when he qualified second to Martin Truex Jr. by .038 seconds.

Fortunately for Busch, the advent of stage racing, where qualifying position often leads to additional points in the first segment of a race, has dovetailed perfectly with the driver’s newfound prowess in time trials.

Perhaps that’s deliberate, though Busch isn’t sure why his pole count has improved so dramatically.

“Obviously it’s great that we have that,” Busch said. “I don’t know why the breakout is. But being able to qualify up front each and every week and having that speed right off the bat gives you a chance of scoring more stage points.

“I feel like that’s one of the things that’s helped us this year of staying further up in the running the entire season long and being able to get some of those stage wins. It’s just a testament to (crew chief) Adam Stevens and the group of guys and everything we’ve got going on.

“We unload pretty close right off the truck every single week, and that certainly helps a lot of things out where we’re not chasing ourselves as soon as we get off the truck.”

Ryan Blaney Qualifies 11th For Apache Warrior 400

Ryan Balney
No. 21 Motorcraft/Quick Lane team advanced through the three rounds of knockout qualifying at Dover International Speedway on Friday to earn the 11th starting spot for Sunday’s Apache Warrior 400.

It was the 21st time in 29 qualifying sessions this season that Ryan Blaney and the No. 21 Motorcraft/Quick Lane Ford Fusion earned a spot among the top-12 starters.

Blaney was 15th fastest in Friday’s opening practice and posted best lap at 160.356 miles per hour in a session that saw him and his team deal with a failed brake rotor.

They bounced back strong in qualifying, posting the third-fastest lap in Round One with a speed of 159.426 mph. He had the sixth-best time in Round Two with a lap at the exact same speed he ran in Round One.

In the third round, Blaney toured the track at 159.025 mph which put him 11th on the starting grid and was second best among the Ford contingent.

“We were decent in qualifying,” Blaney said in his comments following the session. “I missed Turn Three and went way up the race track.”

Nonetheless, he remains confident about his Motorcraft/Quick Lane Fusion and how it will perform on Sunday.

“I think we have decent speed,” he said. “I just didn’t get through that corner very well, and that hurt us all around.

“I think that we’ll have decent speed for Sunday. I thought we were OK in race trim. It’s just a matter of fine-tuning for Sunday.”
