The results from Fontana, NASCAR’s fifth race of the season, are in and this is how the two drivers – both of whom are connected to the number 36 in one way or another – are doing.
Dave Blaney, driver of the number 36 car, finished the race on March 27 in 37th place. Having an engine go out on you probably doesn’t help things. He earned 7 points for the day giving hima season-total of 58 and placing him in 35th place in the standings.
Jeff Burton – who finished 36th at Daytona – did much better as he came in 15th place earning 29 points and giving him a season-total of 103 points. This jumped him up to 25th place overall and he extends his lead over Blaney.
Next up – Martinsville.
