Ryan Blaney took the checkered flag today at Michigan International Speedway, but not without an absolute battle in the final 8 laps.
On the final restart, Blaney got a helluva push from Kyle Busch in the #18 car, giving him the lead with 8 laps to go. But with teammates William Byron and Kyle Larson breathing down his neck, Blaney had to be absolutely perfect to hold them off.
And he was.
With his second win of the season of the 2021 NASCAR season, this is the first multi-win season in Blaney’s Cup Series career.
