Dave Blaney, Tommy Baldwin Racing

Dave Blaney | No. 36 Chevrolet | Tommy Baldwin Racing

It was another long year for Blaney in 2010. For the second straight season, Blaney was forced to start and park almost every race; he finished the year with a 38.2 average finish in 29 starts. Although he will likely find a ride for almost every race again in 2011, his chances of landing a quality ride remain slim. He is currently scheduled to run at least 16 races for Tommy Baldwin's company.

The sad part is that Blaney was a consistent top-30 driver from 2000 to 2008. Driving for cashed-strapped teams the last two seasons has changed that. In the last two seasons, he has amassed 50 DNFs in 59 starts. As his 24th-place run at Atlanta and 29th-place run at Fontana will suggest, he can still be the top-30 guy he used to be. Finding a team to give him the opportunity to run entire races has been the hard part.

Blaney bounced between several teams last year with his best results coming for Front Row Motorsports. He is worth a late-round draft pick in the off chance he is able to land a full-time ride for all of the season.
