CP MOTORSPORTS - BLANEY WINS RAIN-DELAYED BRISTOL TRUCK EVENT

A spin with four laps to go in Wednesday night’s UNOH 200 at Bristol Motor Speedway proved to be the saving grace for Brad Keselowski Racing’s Ryan Blaney, who grabbed the lead on a green-white-checkered restart to win his first race of the 2015 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series season.

Blaney recovered from an early race penalty for jumping a restart to find himself closing on leader Matt Crafton with five laps remaining. When Ty Dillon spun on Lap 196, it triggered the final caution of the night and the opportunity for Blaney to steal Crafton’s thunder. On the final restart, Crafton’s truck sputtered, failing to come up to speed, allowing Blaney to take off and seal his fourth career NCWTS victory.

CP MOTORSPORTS - TOM HIGGINS: REMEMBERING THE GENTLE GIANT BUDDY BAKER

Buddy Baker has a special wish—call it a plea—as he faces the end of his life.
  

In the summer of 1976 Buddy Baker and I drove to the North Carolina mountains to join Whitey Kelley, my former sports editor at the Charlotte Observer, for a round of golf.
