Ryan Blaney - Ryan Blaney should be a solid competitor at Phoenix. He didn't finish well in either race last season, but over his four combined events he's been a top ten contender. Last fall Blaney started on the pole and was around 10th place good but finished 17th when the checkered flag waved. For whatever reason he just faded back at the end. With 19 laps to go he was running in 10th. Additionally it should be noted for the race he had a 10th place average running position and earned the 10th best driver rating . . .
