Newman: Hello, NASCAR.
NASCAR: Hello, Newman.
But now that it’s happened – it being a Sprint Cup race win by The Rocket Man – will it be the start of a 2003-like streak by Newman?
Dr Dick Berggren called for that last week On Pit Row. Among many topics, we asked Dr Dick about Newman. And Berggren said what we’ve all thought; that the no 39 car has been the weak link for Stewart-Haas Racing.
Berggren also said that once the team figured out what Newman needed to be comfortable, Ryan was going to win a bunch. Listen to the Berggren interview here.
Newman looked pretty comfortable to me Saturday night. We’ll have to see if it converts to more good finishes.
On to Texas. Home to America’s Greatest Race Promoter, Eddie Gossage and the Great American Speedway. Ought to be fun.
