Ryan Blaney: I wanted to make sure one of our two cars was gonna win

Ryan Blaney could not win this time either, but he was unlucky and ended up in the wall after the contact. "The last lap, I got good pushes on the bottom from the 23 (Bubba Wallace) and then I was able to get Austin in front and off of four where we were good enough to make a move I got blocked and I ended up getting fenced," he explained for motorsport "I’m happy for Roger Penske, winning the 500 on his birthday.

I’m happy for Jeremy Bullins and everyone that works on that 2 car. It’s just one of those things. It didn’t work out. " "We still ended up fourth, but I don’t know another perfect position we could have put ourselves in to win the race.

It just didn’t work out”.
Blaney didn't want the same things to happen again this time
“I made the decision of I wasn’t gonna make a move until I was 100 percent sure that one of our two cars was gonna win, and one of our two cars were going to win and one of them ended up winning.

I was committed to him until I was 100 percent sure that one of us was gonna win and one of us did," said Blaney. “I don’t know. Congrats to him, I guess. You’ve got to throw a block in that situation”.

Bullins on Blaney

Blaney showed what a teammate he is and helped Cendric win. The crew chief Jeremy Bullins is also grateful to him for that "I'd be remiss if I didn't say thank you to Ryan," said Bullins "That's a hell of a teammate.

I've been here with him and felt like we were going to win with him, and I can't thank him enough for being that good of a teammate because we probably don't win that race without him. "I thought, green-white-checkered, we're just going to race for it and see what happens here.

It was Ryan's idea. Like I said, hell of a teammate. I mean, the guy is awesome." "Then to know you've got somebody back there that you can trust pushing you ... he kept us out front, no doubt."
