Probably one of the most watched drivers in the upcoming season will be Blaney and his new No. 12 Penske Racing team. The young driver makes the jump from Wood Brothers Racing to Penske. Blaney accomplished a lot of great things in his short time with the No. 21 Ford team. He even took the Wood Brothers back to victory lane last year with a big win at Pocono Raceway. Blaney's one win, 14 Top-10 finish campaign of last year should be viewed as just the tip of his potential. With the full resources of Penske Racing, great lineup of sponsors and Jeremy Bullins calling the shots from atop the tool box there's great potential in this driver and team. Blaney is one of the rising stars of NASCAR and he should post an incredible breakout season in 2018.
Car: No. 12 Ford   Crew Chief: Jeremy Bullins

  2. Ryan Blaney 2017 Preseason Outlook
    The Wood Brothers Racing return to full-time action last season was a great success. A big part of the reason for it lies directly on Blaney's shoulders. The youngster exceeded expectations in every way. He claimed nine Top-10 finishes along the way en route to a respectable 20th-place finish in the final driver standings. Not bad for a driver who only had 18-career starts at NASCAR's top level prior to last season. Blaney will set the bar a bit higher in the upcoming season. He will once again be paired with crew chief Jeremy Bullins, and the team also returns completely intact. The goal in 2017 will simply be to make the Chase for the Cup and to be more consistent from week-to-week. Both goals are entirely possible. Winning a race may still be out of reach for the No. 21 Ford team, but there's still plenty of room for more Top 10s and improved consistency.
  3. Ryan Blaney 2014 Preseason Outlook
    After nine seasons of part-time racing in the Sprint Cup Series, Wood Brothers Racing will return to full-time competition in 2016. Blaney will take the wheel and continue the work that he started last season with his 16-start schedule. Over those efforts there were a lot of ups-and-downs, but the young driver managed to claim two top-10 finishes and even one top-5 finish. Blaney will compete for Rookie of the Year honors and battle with Chase Elliott for that honor. Jeremy Bullins returns to the crew chief's seat and will continue to build chemistry with this talented youngster. Blaney has eight combined victories between the Xfinity and Camping World Truck Series and he has a runner-up finish in the 2014 truck series standings to his credit. Blaney has tremendous talent and will grow with this small team.
  4. Ryan Blaney 2008 Preseason Outlook
    The second generation driver and son of Sprint Cup Series veteran Dave Blaney will get his first full-time NASCAR ride in 2013. Blaney will race the full schedule in pursuit of the championship for the strong No. 29 BKR team. He made nine starts for this team last season with one victory and five Top-10 finishes. If you project those results out over a full 22-race schedule you get numbers that are near championship-contending. Blaney is obviously talented, and the Camping World Truck Series is a good fit at this point and time for the young driver. This driver and team should be a winning combination.
