Ryan Newman has finished in a narrow range of seventh to 16th in his last five Martinsville Speedway races.

There is a potential for Newman to score a top-five at Martinsville because he ran that well at Ingenuity Sun Media Raceway (Phoenix) and Richmond International Raceway last year. With a manageable downside in the mid-teens, Newman is one of this week’s better fantasy options.
Mar 22 - 2:40 PM

Last week was fairly typical for Ryan Newman given his recent results; he ran well, but experienced trouble and finished 22nd in the Pennzoil 400 at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.

That was not exactly a rousing success, but even so it beat his recent record on similarly-configured, 1.5-mile tracks. With a best of 20th last fall at Texas Motor Speedway, Newman has an average of 26.7 in his last six attempts on this track type.

Ryan Newman slapped the wall with five laps remaining in the Folds of Honor QuikTrip 500 at Atlanta Motor Speedway.

Newman lost a lap, but the news if going to get worse. He lost a hood flap and will have to come in to replace it. He should be removed from NASCAR Fantasy Live rosters.
Feb 25 - 4:26 PM

Ryan Newman posted the fastest single lap in final practice for Folds of Honor QuikTrip 500 at Atlanta Motor Speedway with a speed of 184.868 mph.

We knew Newman had speed because he qualified on the outside pole on Friday—just like he did in 2017. It is difficult to know what kind of durability he had last year, however, because he ran into trouble during the race. This weekend, he had only the 17th fastest, 10-lap average of 172.706 mph and that makes him questionable.
Feb 24 - 1:45 PM

Ryan Newman was .038 seconds slower than Kyle Busch and will start on the outside of the front row for the Folds of Honor QuikTrip 500 at Atlanta Motor Speedway.

Newman qualified second last year as well, but a battery problem relegated him to 35th at the checkers. Newman was clocked at 184.419 mph.
Feb 23 - 6:10 PM

Despite getting involved in a Big One crash in sight of the checkers, Ryan Newman finished eighth in the Daytona 500.

Newman is a bulldog and if he has a shot at getting into the top 10, he is going to do so. That never-quit attitude is what makes him such a strong fantasy value. Teammate Austin Dillon won, which will give Richard Childress Racing a lot of momentum in the coming weeks.
Feb 18 - 7:40 PM

Ryan Newman finished in the 20s in his first two attempts on restrictor-plate, superspeedways last year, but he ended the 2017 season on a high note with a pair of top-fives.

While that was certainly good news for fantasy players with him on the roster, they were his first top-fives since the end of 2014. Newman should only be used provisionally to fill the last slot on a roster.

Ryan Newman - No. 31 Bass Pro Shops/Cabela's Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 - will compete in NASCAR's Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series season-opening exhibition event, the Advance Auto Parts Clash, on Sunday February 11th.

Newman is one of 17 drivers participating in the 75-lap race and earned his spot by qualifying for the Playoffs. Sunday's race format consists of two segments with a competition caution at lap 25 to separate the segments. It will be up to crew chief Luke Lambert to choose Newman's starting position among the entries for the Clash in a random drawing on Saturday night.-Richard Childress Racing

Richard Childress Racing (RCR) and Caterpillar Inc. have renewed their overall partnership and sponsorship of the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series No. 31 Chevrolet Camaro team.

The partnership between RCR and Caterpillar began in 2009 and has been highlighted by the Cat Racing program's consistent activation and engagement with Cat dealers and customers. Since the 2014 debut of driver/crew chief combination of Ryan Newman and Luke Lambert, the team has earned a career-best finish in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series point standings, coming within one point of winning the coveted championship. Consistency has remained a strong suit and in four seasons, the 31 team has earned three NASCAR Playoffs berths, one victory, 19 top-five and 54 top-10 finishes.-RCR

Ryan Newman took home his first top-10 since his second place finish at Talladega. Newman advanced 11 positions for his starting spot of 21 to complete the top-10 at Homestead-Miami Speedway.

Newman fell out of playoff contention after the first round and outside of his Talladega finish did not finish better 13th during the playoff run before tonight, which was a sharp fall in finishing position after his four race run of sixth or better in the final four regular season events. This will force the Richard Childress racing to hone in on his 'bull-dog' like personality to try to find early success in 2018.
