    No but soon he will get the message that he should have faith in his team mates instead of trying to out race them. Time to get serious for him.

    Was at the race and watched Blaney quite a bit. On most restarts when he was on the bottom lane he would get ate up pretty good. Seemed like he was being ultra conservative. It seems he has lost some of that agression he had shown earlier in his career. For sure he and his car had good speed. Once things settled down from the restart he would normally start picking off positions. Rarely did someone pass him. Not sure what is going on with him, but he just doesn't seem as focused this year.

    Back to Blaney, I’m disappointed in his performance. Seems to be regressing? Still in top 10 in points? Like to see at least one win this year but he’s not been there at the end in any races lately....

    I hate to do this, but...



    KyBu nailed it. It may seem harsh, but KBM as a top Truck organization has clear expectations for performance and winning. An argument has been made that it is a development series and more patience should be given for young drivers -- fans can decide for themselves where the line is drawn for KyBu's public critical driver assessments.

    Cup is not a development series -- it is top tier. Blaney is producing as a Top 10 driver; but Penske (like JGR and other top Cup teams) is about winning -- and not just winning but going after the big prize on the big stage (Cup Championship, Indy 500, etc).

    Doubtful that I'll ever hear a Penske official give an unfiltered critical driver assessment -- just seems like they're too sophisticated and professional to air their critical comments publicly. But Blaney has just one Win for Penske -- only they know what amount of time and money they're willing to invest in YRB to get him competitive enough to challenge Cup Champions and other top drivers to get to the Final Four and compete for the Championship.

    If you don't like him, just say you don't. Good lord man, what a soap opera.

    You sound like the dude who ran into Bubba Wallace thread after one bad race. Yikes man, you think its not frustrating for him to see Logano and Keselowski do well? He's a racer like anyone else, he has the ability to beat his teammates. Its a tall task, but he can become a top-tier driver. He's close, but all this talk about how bad he's been is ludicrous. He'll find his footing and get back to leading like he was during the first quarter of the season.

    So here's the deal. I'm a total Ryan Blayney fan. Actually he's the reason that I started paying attention to NASCAR again.
    So, with that being said...……..

    I pay attention to his position and who he is racing more than the race itself.

    He is in a little slump right now. (I'm glad finishing 9th is a slump)

    There has been more than one race this year where he was in a position to win and circumstances out of his control took that chance away.

    It is a team effort. I'm not throwing them under the bus though because I believe they will come around.

    I believe your assessment is incorrect and the results will show that well before the end of the season.

    I expected more wins, but Blaney is a top 10 driver still. Let's go 50-60-70 races without a win before calling his head for......... Austin Cindric? Custer? A guy on another team currently?

    Blaney is in what the stick n ballers call a slump. Some who are fans of Blaney who I am one are disappointed, and then we have the poor souls who are negative with just about everything Nascar. :D

    anybody looking around would see that the days of a youngster coming into cup or a veteran winning driver from another series doing the same, isn't going to immediately set the Nascar Cup series on it's head? Those days are long gone, it requires an attitude adjustment that many don't realize. So the get rid of him quick for another doesn't work in the cup series. The Kyle spreading B.S. about a couple of young truck drivers? You picked em? Man up.

    It has nothing to do with like or dislike. But for the record I like YRB a lot more than Kyle Busch. But I respect Kyle as a race driver (and owner) more than YRB.

    It was Ryan's dad Dave who put the nix on Blaney doing any dirt racing. I thought it came down from Penske.

     
  19. Truex_rox

    Truex_rox 19 looks better than ever.

    Austin Cindric is the one at Penske that's not delivering.

    Yeah thats my point. Penske has no one waiting to push Blaney out if Roger only wanted 3 cars.

    Penske's Xfinity program isn't winning, not just Cindric.

    "Cindric" -- where have I heard that name before?...

    I believe there are two parking spots assigned to "Cindric" at Penske...

    Thanks for the acknowledgement.
    Does he get bonus points from you for flipping Kyle the bird?

    Seems like kind of an empty gesture with the speed of KyBu's Toyota. I was looking for close racing and some back and forth trading with Blaney dropping the hammer -- but he became irrelevant as KyBu headed to MTJ's rear bumper, and not Blaney's front bumper.

    3rd place and back were irrelevant.

    Interesting to see KyBu after the race play nice, we'll see how that plays out in the future.

    Blaney appeared to get the most out of his Ford -- real nice job in grabbing a podium finish on this road course.

    and Yes, I think Roger Penske should ban YRB from all Disney properties for the remainder of the season or until he wins a Cup race.
