Topping off his fuel with an extra pit stop during the race\u2019s second-to-last caution period allowed Ryan Blaney to drive the Motorcraft\/Quick Lane Ford Fusion to a strong 10th place finish in the rain-delayed Axalta \u2018We Paint Winners\u2019 400 at Pocono Raceway.\r\nBlaney had the Wood Brothers\u2019 Ford in 12th place when the ninth yellow flag of the race flew. Crew chief Jeremy Bullins had his rookie driver come back to pit road to add some extra fuel.\r\n\u201cWe were really close to being able to make it (on fuel),\u201d Bullins said explaining his strategy. \u201cWe felt like we were far enough back to take a gamble and top off. We gave up a few spots to do that but we were able to get back where we needed to be at the end.\u201d\r\nThe No. 21 slipped back to 19th but moved steadily forward through the field before getting to 10th with six laps to go.\r\n\u201cThere were a lot of guys who were saving at the end and we passed a few of them,\u201d Bullins continued. \u201cWe just ran out of time to get to the rest of them.\u201d\r\nThe top-10 finish in Blaney\u2019s first Cup ride at the \u201cTricky Triangle\u201d was his fifth of the 2016 season and the seventh time he took the checkered flag in the top 15.\r\n\u201cYou come out of here with a top-10 in your first trip here with a Cup car and that\u2019s not bad,\u201d Bullins said summarizing the team\u2019s effort. \u201cWe had a couple of things we\u2019d do differently looking back, but all in all we\u2019ll take it and feel like we\u2019ll be stronger when we come back in the fall.\u201d\r\nAt the halfway point to the Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup, Blaney remains 15th in the drivers\u2019 points standings as he and the Wood Brothers Racing Team head to Michigan International Speedway for Sunday\u2019s FireKeepers Casino 400.
