Cup star Blaney is Xfinity spoiler
DOVER, Del. – Ryan Blaney crashed the Xfinity Series playoffs and the Cup regular dominated Saturday at Dover International Speedway.
“It's really hard to get a car like that,” he said.
NASCAR imposed limits this season on how many times the elite Cup drivers can race in NASCAR's second-tier series. But no rule could stop Blaney from reaching victory lane. Blaney made the Cup playoffs with a win at Pocono and played spoiler at Dover in the second race of the Xfinity playoffs.
Xfinity playoff drivers took the second through six spots and nine of the top 11. Justin Allgaier was second, followed by William Byron, Daniel Hemric and Brennan Poole.
