This 2 mile oval hasn't been all that good to Newman with: 1-pole/3-top 5's/5-top 10's in 16 starts. Very obviously, he needs to break his inconsistent trend at this track.
This is Jimmie Johnson's home-coming track as well as Jeff Gordon's so all the media blitz will be talking about those two....WHO CARES REALLY!
It has been nice seeing Ryan grabbing a little piece of the Nascar lime light with MUCH more in the way of interviews and talk of Newman. How many years has it been since this has happened folks?
Not much else to say about this race other than,"Gentlemen, start your engines!"
GOOD LUCK TO TEAM #39!
Newman will go out 9TH!
