While Byron narrowly escaped elimination, ending the day just a few points clear of Denny Hamlin, Blaney left nothing to chance as he captured the checkered flag.
The win is the third this season for the driver of the No. 12 Team Penske Ford, with two coming in the playoffs, and 10th of his career.
“It’s awesome. I grew up in High Point, not too far from here. Closer to High Point honestly, Martinsville is than Charlotte,” Blaney said. “Really cool. Wanting to win here for a long time. Been super close for many years. Awesome to close it out.
“I mean, felt like we put together really strong playoffs, especially the Round of 8, we had a good run in the whole Round of 8. Just overall really proud of the whole effort.
“RP (team owner Roger Penske) couldn’t be here, unfortunately, but I know he was watching. This is awesome. Can’t wait to get to Phoenix next week.”
