Ryan Blaney wins Coca-Cola 600 to give Penske weekend sweep - ESPN

CONCORD, N.C. -- Jumping into the crowd to celebrate a big race victory appears to have become a Team Penske thing.

Ryan Blaney held off William Byron to win the rescheduled Coca-Cola 600 on Monday at Charlotte Speedway, giving team owner Roger Penske a sweep of the Memorial Day weekend's top races in the United States.

Josef Newgarden won a record-extending 19th Indianapolis 500 on Sunday for Team Penske. Like Newgarden, Blaney jumped out of his car and climbed into the crowd to celebrate the win with fans.

"I only did it because Josef did it," Blaney said. "I was pretty fired up. I don't get that excited very often, but I was super pumped. I loved how Josef did it Sunday. ... I said, 'I am going to go in the stands like Josef did and have some human contact.'"

Blaney compared it to jumping into a mosh pit at a metal concert.
