Ryan Newman drove the No. 31 Chevrolet SS to a 10th-place finish in Saturday night's 500-mile event at Darlington Raceway.
He started seventh at a track he considers to be his favorite on the Sprint Cup Series circuit. He raced as high as second and as low as 16th, so crew chief Luke Lambert made a series of chassis adjustments during more than 10 pit stops. With five laps remaining, Newman dodged a close call after sustaining damage on a three-wide restart that saw him go from seventh to 12th place. Newman used the second and final green-white-checkered flag restarts to gain ground and record a 10th-place finish, his third top-10 of 2014. The result ranks Newman ninth in the driver championship point standings.-Richard Childress Racing Apr 13 - 7:32 PM
