With his seventh-place finish in the Toyota Owners 400 at Richmond Raceway Sunday, Ryan Blaney earned his 100th-career Top-10 finish in the NASCAR Cup Series.
Blaney led 128 laps en route to becoming the 74th driver in Cup Series history to hit the century mark in Top-10 finishes.
“My best finish here,” Blaney said. “Overall, a fun day. It was kind of frustrating because we were running so good early. I wanted to run better, but I can’t complain about it too much. Overall, not a bad day.”
2022 is Blaney’s seventh full-time season in the Cup Series.
In 241 career starts, Blaney has earned 7 wins, 9 poles, 51 top-5 finishes and 100 top-10 finishes with 2,839 laps led.
The first driver to earn 100 top-10 finishes was Lee Petty at Lakewood Speedway in Atlanta, Georgia in March of 1954.
Seven-time champion Richard Petty has the NASCAR Cup Series record for the most top-10 finishes with 712.
Four-time champion Jeff Gordon earned the second-most with 477. Rounding out the all-time top 5 are Mark Martin (453), Bobby Allison (446) and Dale Earnhardt (428).
