Ryan Blaney found victory lane on Saturday for his second career win in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series. Blaney, son of Sprint Cup driver Dave Blaney, guided his No. 29 Ford F-150 to the win in the Pocono Mountains 125.
The pass for the lead came on lap 53 of a 50 lap race around the 2.5 mile triangle track in Long Pond, PA. Blaney would withstand a second green white checkered to beat pole sitter Miguel Paludo to the checkered flag by .271 seconds.
Blaney’s win marked the first time that Ford has won a race in the truck series since 2009 with Colin Braun. Ford had no teams competing in the series until Penske Racing switched to the manufacturer at the beginning of the 2013 season. This move facilitated a move of Brad Keselowski Racing to Ford in the truck series.
