Blaney takes Pocono 400 for 1st Cup Series win

LONG POND, Pennsylvania — Ryan Blaney dealt with radio issues in the Pocono 400 at Pocono Raceway on Sunday in the best way possible, recording his first career Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series win.

“I think it exceeds the dream a little bit,” Blaney said of his initial victory. “I grew up watching my dad race on this race track, and it’s so cool to get the Wood Brothers in victory lane, No. 1, and to do it here at a race track that is really close to Ohio, a home to me, is pretty awesome.”

Wood Brothers Racing had been winless since Trevor Bayne’s victory in the 2011 Daytona 500.
