Ryan Blaney thinks American drivers can learn a thing or two


Ryan Blaney took a recent trip to Germany and got to drive the Autobahn, which is cool for any driver, but has to be amazingly cool for a race car driver. Remember, there are sections of the Autobahn in which there is no speed limit.

But Blaney came away most impressed with the driving and lane discipline of Germans, who don't drive in the left lane. After all, you don't want to be caught in the left with a car bearing down on you and lord knows how fast.

Here, in the states, we all have stories of annoying drivers who meander in the left lane when they should be in a non-passing lane.

Blaney took notice.


Blaney, who drives the No. 21 Ford Fusion for Wood Brothers Racing, will be at Darlington this weekend, and he can drive as fast as he wants, in any lane he wants.
