NASCAR America: Ryan Blaney’s confidence has grown in sophomore Cup season


Ryan Blaney is sixth in the NASCAR Cup standings heading into Sunday’s Food City 500 at Bristol Motor Speedway.

With his performance, it’s pretty clear that Blaney is on the cusp of his first career Cup win. Plus, that performance has brought about a big resurgence for one of NASCAR’s most revered teams, Wood Brothers Racing.

“It’s just a matter of finishing out that second half of the race,” Blaney said during an interview with NBCSN’s Marty Snider that aired Thursday on NASCAR America. Blaney also discussed the improved confidence that comes with no longer being a rookie.
