After driving the #93 for Bill Davis in the Busch Series (XFINTY) for 1998 and 1999, Blaney and his team would be promoted to Cup for the last 5 races of the 1999 season. In 2000, Blaney and his Amoco team moved up to Winston (Sprint) Cup full-time and posted two-top tens. He finished third in the NASCAR Winston Cup Rookie of the Year award standings for the 2000 season.

In 2001, the team would switch to Dodge and he would compete in all the races with a best finish of 6th, three times. He left Davis at the end of the season because of sponsorship concerns. The team dominated the Spring race at Atlanta, but 2 loose wheels on the #93 would force them to concede the victory to Cup series newcomer, Kevin Harvick.
