Very popular track for the simple reason. You can see all the cars the entire race!
Newman does well at Bristol. His stats look like this:1-top 5/10-top 10's/2-poles/0-wins
Newman's average start is 9.2 and his average finish is 17.56. Would be nice to see him break that finish trend and continue his fruitful year.
It's been nice to turn on the "idiot box" and hear talk about S/H and Ryan. There have been years they would simply just skip over any thing Ryan would do in a race like he had a disease. I think it was his conflict of interest old sponsor "Alltel." Alltel was a direst competitor to Sprint. Think about it? Just like all politics in this country. Sprint may have suggested to tone down talk about Newman with his Alltel primary? I know, conspiracy theory but just turn on your TV and see how one-sided it is politically! I realize Alltel hasn't been his primary for years. It takes a while to remove his "gag" order. Just my opinion folks.
