    Default Dave Blaney

    I知 sure it値l get moved to no mans land of the sprint forum. I did not post it there because no one is on there. And plenty of junk gets left here.

    Anyhow, how awesome was it for Dave to get an Outlaws win at his home track after over 20 years? And with a last lap pass. And I知 from that area, grew up half an hour away tops down State Route 305. That family is well liked, at least in my eyes up there. My childhood race car driver was Blue Blaney, never could figure out why anyone named their kid Blue. Ha ha. Lou was an amazing dude, who gave me one of his trophies at Raceway 7. Not sure if we still have it at my Mom痴.

    So happy for Dave, a guy who shows no emotion, like his Dad, did there. And for the driver Ryan has become.

    Check out the replays, on Sharon Twitter and you need no account. Just something very cool and a feel good moment in a World that sometimes doesn稚 feel that way. And an excellent crowd. Guy that won the crate wingless race was a no slouch 410 driver too. Rod George(61)Dave(58)
    Up in the air who my next 吐avorite driver is. Really losing hope on Bloomer getting anywhere back to 渡ormal.

    I saw that one. It was great. I知 a late model fan but watch the outlaws on dirtvision. Honestly their quality of racing especially on the bullrings is at a very high level. I thought the crowd might burn the place down at Sharon. They were seriously excited.

    doesn't matter the type of race car. it is moments like this that make old race fans like me keep going to races. never know when something really special might happen.

    That was one of the best racing stories of the year. Dave was so low key about it when he got out of the car. So cool to see all the congratulations he got. How about Johnny Gibson's call on those final two laps. His excitement calling that race was epic!

    I loved the news! I was a Vivarin fan also. I still have a t shirt with a Kenny Woodruff autograph.

    back in the mid 90's i was at the kings royal and blaney's heat race started. he was mid pack and coming out of turn 2, someone checked up in front of him. he hit them and his front end went up on about a 30 degree angle. he stayed like that down the entire back stretch and then dropped it at the pit gate. drove under the car in front of him and to the outside of the next car coming out of turn 4. i still have an autographed shirt from then.

    Cough cough. That was Dale. Dave is about 59, probably played, but almost 100% racing.

    Dale is about 65, played for WVU on scholarship, was drafted by the Lakers, and blew his knee out. On a team with Worthy, Jabbar, and I think Magic. While he wasn稚 comfortable coming from small town Ohio, he had made it. After rehab he went back, and I don稚 think he got cut, I think he just decided to not play anymore. Can稚 remember. Dave talked about it some on Jr痴 podcast. And he started racing.

    In the mid 2000痴 he was at Sharon helping run it quite a bit, till he went back to driving full time. Now he works for the All Stars.

    I致e watched him play ball at the Vienna Air Base. Dude has very good skills. Wears a knee brace, so I知 sure it still bothers him. Now this was 15 years ago or more, just saying.

    Me sorry. Yes it was Dale. For some reason I thought this thread was about Dale. I did not know NASCAR Dave was running sprint cars again.

    Agreed. That 10 car was a sharp looking ride. He was probably my favorite sprint driver, along with Jac Haudenshield.

    I was at Sharon Saturday. The crowd was going nuts the entire race with Sheldon ripping threw lapped cars and bouncing off the wall and I didn't think it could get louder but it did when Dave took the lead. It was just a regular woo show but it had the vibe of a huge event. Was a standing room only crowd. Cars parked for a good mile down the road headed south and they had to rope off most of the pit area to park cars. Rod George is Gregg satterlees father in law too.

    Blaney family are class acts. Would love to see Ryan in a open wheel car, I wonder if he's ever strapped into his dad's sprint car ? I wonder if Ronnie Trevis had anything to do with the building of that car ? When Dave first got into a sprint car he ran a Treviso craft.

    Forgot to mention Dale too. Quite an athlete. I may have actually seen him race a little more than Dave. Great family

    He did say it was built by them. Meaning Dave and his crew, whoever that entails I have no idea.
