Roger Penske has been very successful in IRL racing but has a goose egg in Championship wins in Nascar! Roger, I respectfully disagree with you on that logic.
I think about all the countless Nascar "bad luck" Newman has had far exceeds his good luck in his current racing career actually starting in 2000. Cup career began in 2002. Not trying make up any excuses for Newman but those are the facts.
Yes I know. The following racing bad luck happens to all race teams or drivers. But more so to many race teams including Ryan Newman in his entire career of work:
A.)Getting caught up in a wreck not of your doing.
B.)A tire goes flat on it's own.
C.)A tire goes flat caused by another driver.
D.)Engine failure caused by the driver.
E.)Engine failure caused by engine builders.
F.)Electrical failure caused by bad parts.
G.)Bad pit stops(either slow or missing/badly tightened wheel lugs)
H.)Caught speeding on pit road.
I.)Black flag by Nascar(many different reasons)
J.)Power Steering goes bad.
K.)Sliding or wrecking caused by another drivers car fluids.
L.)Any mechanical failure.
M.)Pre/Post inspection penalties by NASCAR!
So Roger, no such thing as racing luck......I think not! Newman has had all of those above at one time or another folks and you wonder why he has no Championships? DNF'S are a killer!
So, what's your honest opinion?
