Ryan Blaney Quotes:
ON MAKING HIS BRISTOL NATIONWIDE DEBUT – “I feel more comfortable going into the race being at the track before. Having some experience helps you out. We will have the race on Wednesday to get some track time. Bristol is one of my favorite tracks. Short tracks are what I’m used to, so I feel more comfortable there. Plus, Bristol always puts on a good show. I’ve gone into this weekend the same as every track. I’ve watched tape and talked to other drivers about the race. I’m looking forward to see what we can do.”

About Tommy Baldwin Racing:
NASCAR Sprint Cup Series (NSCS) Crew Chief Tommy Baldwin formed Tommy Baldwin Racing (TBR) in 2009. Baldwin utilized a declining economy to open a NSCS team with a stringent budget. The team worked to build to full-time competition, and by the 2011 season, the team’s third season, TBR competed in every race and locked the No. 36 Chevrolet in the top-35 in NSCS Owner Points. Dave Blaney drove the No. 36 Chevrolet to TBR’s highest finish of third in the October 2011 event at Talladega Superspeedway. TBR also fielded a second car for select races in the past two seasons with multiple drivers.
Based in Mooresville, N.C., TBR will compete in the NSCS in 2012 with NASCAR veterans David Reutimann and Dave Blaney. The team will also compete in the NASCAR Nationwide Series with Ryan Blaney, Bobby Santos and Ryan Truex.
