Tony Stewart and Ryan Newman were called to NASCAR’s trailer before the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 400 weekend began at Chicagoland Speedway.

Ryan Newman tried to force his way through the Federated Auto Parts 400 pack Saturday night at Richmond International Raceway. When he attempted to bump-and-run past Tony Stewart, however, the soon-to-be retiring veteran wrecked him and ended his playoff hopes.

After failing the post-race Laser Inspection Station last week at Darlington Raceway, NASCAR handed down penalties to Ryan Newman and Kyle Larson.
With a substantial points’ deficit to overcome, Richmond International Raceway is a good place for Ryan Newman to try and make up ground. He has finished on the same lap as the leaders in 13 of his last 15 attempts there, dating back to the start of his tenure with Stewart-Haas Racing.
According to NBC’s Dustin Long, the No. 42 and 31 cars both failed the Laser Inspection Station after the Bojangles' Southern 500. There could be a points’ penalty for both teams, which would be extremely costly in Ryan Newman’s bid to overcome one of the other winless drivers for a Chase berth. Kyle Larson has a victory and any points’ deduction would be meaningless.
Ryan Newman rolled the dice late in the Bojangles' Southern 500 and grabbed the lead at Darlington Raceway after staying out on old tires. He managed to hold onto the lead for nine laps and ultimately salvaged a solid finish of eighth.
