Newman and his race team seemed disconnected and out of sink most of this season. Yes, they had some good races....if you remember any of them?
Now, we get to finish this racing season at a restrictor plate race that requires help from others of all things. Most teams will be doing all they can to help one another. Where does that leave Ryan? Denny was sort of Ryan's buddy at these type of races but will he this race? Stewart is out of contention but he and Newman rarely hook up for any period of time?
I'm not even going to list Newman's stats for this race. Senseless at this point! A coin toss would give a you a better clue to the ending of this race!
Practice will be this Friday at 1:30PM(ET) followed by quals at 6:00PM(ET). Also, Saturday practices at 1:00PM-3:00PM(ET) as well. Race is Sunday beginning at 2:00PM(ET).
I guess I have looked at Nascar as a realist. No pie in the sky sprinkled with rainbows and unicorns. I report on what I see that particular race. Nothing wrong being blindly positive if that's your thing!
2013 brings us Newman fans lots of hope with the new cars and our new race team! Plus, we kind of know Harvick will be a member of S/H in 2014. Adding Harvick.......hum....not sure what to think of that?
This will be Ryan's last ever race with the U.S.Army sponsorship and paint scheme! Would love to see a win as sort of a moral booster for Nascar fans currently serving........but honestly, well anything can happen I guess?
Enjoy the race because the following Sunday.........there won't be one!
