The NASCAR Sprint Cup Series (NSCS) heads to Texas Motor Speedway (TMS) this weekend for the Samsung Mobile 500. Tommy Baldwin Racing (TBR) driver Dave Blaney will wheel of the No. 36 ALL SPORT Body Quencher Chevrolet in the 501-mile event.

CHASSIS NO. 910 – The TBR team will bring the No. 910 chassis that was built in the off-season. Blaney drove the chassis at California this season. The No. 36 Chevrolet started 31st and finished 37th due to a part failure.

LAST RACE RECAP: GOODY’S FAST RELIEF 500 – Blaney started the Goody’s Fast Relief 500 from the 25th position. He looked poised for a solid run in the No. 36 ALL SPORT Body Quencher Chevrolet, but four right-front flat tires relegated the TBR team to a 30th-place finish.

IN THE POINTS – The No. 36 Accell Construction Chevrolet is currently 38th in owner points, five points outside the top-35. Blaney is currently 34th in NSCS driver points.

TOP-35 IMPORTANCE – Starting last weekend at Martinsville Speedway, the 2011 NSCS Owner Points will guarantee the top-35 teams a starting spot each week. The No. 36 TBR team’s main goal of the weekend is to work their way into the top-35 and guarantee a spot in the race at Talladega Superspeedway. If the No. 36 Accell Constuction Chevrolet moves into the top-35 this weekend, it will be the first time since the team’s inception in 2009 that TBR will have a guaranteed starting spot, which would allow the team to focus solely on race day setup instead of qualifying.

I like Texas – it’s a great area and a good racetrack.

Dave Blaney Quotes:

ON RACING AT TEXAS – “Martinsville was tough. I am glad to get back to the racetrack and shake it off. As the weeks go by, we are getting better and better. A lot of the guys around us had troubles last week as well, so we aren’t out of the battle for the top-35.”


Tommy Baldwin Quotes:

ON TBR AT TEXAS – “I’m excited to have Accell Construction back on the car in Texas. I look forward to a good race weekend. I like Texas – it’s a great area and a good racetrack.”
