NUM­BERS GAME

16

Cecil Whig - - INSIDEBASEBALL -

Ryan Blaney’s fourth-place finish Sun­day at Michi­gan gave the his­toric Wood Broth­ers Rac­ing team and its famed No. 21 the first top-5 finish at the track since Mor­gan Shep­herd drove to a sec­ond-place ef­fort in 1993. Of course, a top-5 finish for the team is grow­ing less and less sur­pris­ing as Blaney’s tal­ent con­tin­ues to shine, and the tech­ni­cal re­la­tion­ship with Penske Rac­ing con­tin­ues to flour­ish. But it should all be kept in per­spec­tive: Sun­day’s top 5 was just the 16th top-5 finish for the team since 1997.
