Dave Blaney is a retired American stock car racing driver. He is the father of current NASCAR Cup Series driver Ryan Blaney and brother of sprint car driver Dale Blaney. Before NASCAR, Blaney had a successful sprint car career, which he still makes the occasional start.

Blaney’s start in NASCAR actually came in 1992 at Rockingham Speedway. It wouldn’t be until six years later that he came to NASCAR full-time, running with Bill Davis Racing in the Xfinity Series. In 2000, his team moved up to the Cup Series, where he would run the next two seasons.

For the 2002 season, Blaney moved to Jasper Motorsports and after two season he was a free agent once again. In 2004 he drove for Bill Davis Racing, Ultra Motorsports, Richard Childress Racing, and Roush Fenway Racing. Childress picked him up for 2005, but let him go after one season. Blaney would return to Davis’ team to run again from 2006-2008.

During the course of the rest of Blaney’s career, he drove for Prism Motorsports, Front Row Motorsports, Germain Racing, Max Q Motorsports, Randy Humphrey Racing and Tommy Baldwin Racing. With Baldwin, Blaney ran three full-time seasons, before running select events in 2014 to finish his career.
