With his victory Sunday in the YellaWood 500 at Talladega Superspeedway, Ryan Blaney is now in a three way tie for 65th-place on the NASCAR Cup Series all-time wins list.
Blaney is now tied with Paul Goldsmith, Cotton Owens, and Bob Welborn.
Blaney picked up his second victory of the 2023 season and the ninth of his career, breaking a tie he previously held with Kyle Petty. The win comes in Blaney’s 301st career start.
“I have to give a big thanks to Riley Herbst,” Blaney said. “He did a really good job there the last couple restarts. He doesn’t have a lot of Cup starts, but he did a great job and pushed me so thanks to him. This is so cool.”
Now ahead of Blaney on the wins list — at 10 wins each — includes Donnie Allison, Clint Bowyer, William Byron and Sterling Marlin.
Blaney has now won at Talladega three times in the Cup Series, with the previous two wins coming in 2019 and 2020.
Goldsmith competed in 127 total starts during the 1950s and 1960s.
Owens raced in 160 races from 1950 to 1964. He also fielded the championship-winning car for David Pearson in 1966.
Welborn raced in 183 Cup Series races from 1952 to 1964.
The next race for the Cup Series is scheduled for Sunday, Oct. 8 at the Charlotte Motor Speedway Road Course.
