But, that leads to the question, what the heck!?
There are 12 drivers allegedly competing for a championship and Blaney's just excited he has enough points to qualify automatically each week. How did all 12 finish behind him Sunday!?
I don't mean to knock Blaney, he seems like a good guy, but based on his track record, he shouldn't have the car nor ability to finish in front of the entire Chase field over the course of a 500-mile paint trading affair. Yet, there he was at the end of the day, on the bottom step of a metaphorical podium, while fans tried to stomach what happened to their favorite Chasers.
