Ryan Blaney had some terrible luck on Sunday and wasn’t happy about it.

Blaney’s No. 12 Ford Mustang Dark Horse for Team Penske was leading late in the Enjoy Illinois 300 at World Wide Technology Raceway at Gateway in Illinois on Sunday. Blaney had led 20 of the final 23 laps, but his No. 12 Ford ran out of gas on the final lap.

Blaney finished 24th in the race after running out of fuel. His misfortune opened the door for Austin Cindric to get the win. Christopher Bell, who led 80 laps during the race, had a mechanical issue and finished 7th.

After his disappointing finish, Blaney did not hide his feelings.

“That one is going to f—ing sting,” Blaney said.

How could it not? To go from thinking you’re going to win to running out of fuel on the final lap is a brutal way to go down.
