Since Newman has nothing to loose he can take a few more chances than most drivers. But, I noticed he lingered around in the back in order to avoid the famous wrecks. That proved to be the best game plan.
Newmans never had a fast solo race car at these tracks. Not many race teams do. And, his only other option is his team mate Stewart who often in faster and seems to want to "hook up" with another car? Ryan has used Denny Hamlin many times with good success.
In the in suing last lap. Tony Stewart admittedly caused the big wreck which luckily didn't involve the #39. He was hanging out in the back. I loved Tonys post interview when he mentioned himself as being,"A finely tuned athlete!" How can you not like Stewart? Newman ended up P9 in which is great for him!
Newman is now 14TH in points but still -47 from P13 that Bush currently owns. Tony Stewart finished P22 and is now 7TH in the Chase! Tony will need some wins!
Any replies are welcomed!
