Video: Blaney cautions ‘it’s early in the year’ as he carries Ford banner

Ryan Blaney seems to be leading Ford early in the NASCAR Cup Series season, but he’s not getting caught up in the numbers.

Blaney, who is back atop the standings for the first time since winning the championship last fall, is the only Ford driver inside the top 10 in the championship standing. Team Penske teammate Austin Cindric is the next Ford driver in the standings but down in 15th position.
