I was a little emotional myself. I chose to be a Ryan Newman fan back in late 2001 riding around with my cousin who is a local city police officer. He mentioned to me that Ryan was coming up through the Nascar racing ranks as a very promising driver from South Bend,Indiana. What sold me even more is. We both share the very same last name! Kind of silly but that's what sold me. Then, I attended Ryans very first "Fan Appreciation Day" in 2002 at his families automotive garage in Niles,Michigan. I met so many people that day it was crazy!
There's no doubt in my mind Newman will get a ride for 2014. We won't know for sure until Ryan chooses to announce this information.
Leading up to this win was Ryans decent racing performances in the Nascar Modified race and the historic Nascar Truck Series race at Eldora.(P3) Newman never was a "one trick pony" race car driver. We all have always known that............
There's plenty more races left this season for Matt Borland and company to figure out. Newman seeing Jimmie Johnson in his rear view mirror another race would be.........PRICELESS!
