In the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series, SANY America will be the primary
sponsor of the No. 7 car, which is an honor because the car is a
tribute to TBR team owner Tommy Baldwin Jr.'s late father, Tom
Baldwin Sr. A legendary NASCAR Modified driver, Baldwin's father
sported the number 7NY throughout his career. Working on his father's
cars is how Baldwin got his start in racing, and ultimately led him
into NASCAR's elite series.  
Driving the No. 7 car full-time for the third consecutive year,
Blaney joined TBR in 2010. In 2011, his first full season with Tommy
Baldwin Racing, Blaney earned the team's best finish and tied his
career-best result with a third-place finish at Talladega
The No. 7 SANY-branded car features a large rendition of the SANY
brand logo on the hood of the car, and the word SANY emblazoned in
red on the rear sides, trunk and roof. The company name "SANY" comes
from the English pronunciation of the Chinese characters that mean
"three ones." The three ones refer to the three primary goals in the
corporate vision: "To build a first-class enterprise, to foster
first-class employees, and to make first-class contributions to
society." The SANY brand mark incorporates these three core
principles with three interlocking numeral "1" symbols. The three
numerals point outside the circle to infinite space that represents
great possibilities. SANY's motto is "Quality Changes the World." The
SANY brand will also appear on the No. 7 car's tractor trailer,
driver's suit and pit shirts.
