Blaney will be back with Prism

Food City 500 PracticeDave Blaney will remain as the driver of the #66 Toyota with the Prism Motorsports team owned by Phil Parsons and Randy Humphrey.

There was some talk that Blaney would not be back with the team but the two sides will again be partners in 2010. Blaney qualified for 30 races last year and started and parked in 29 of them.

Prism Motorsports is also adding a second car to the mix which will be driven by Michael McDowell. Team owner Phil Parsons said that adding the second car would be one way of allowing Blaney to actually race full races this season.

Parsons also noted that no matter what should Blaney qualify for the Daytona 500 he will race the whole distance.

“Daytona pays enough purse that you can afford to race,” Parsons said. “We’ve got to concentrate on going down there and racing our way in.
