While the summer may be winding down, Ryan Newman is heating up. That’s right. With four races remaining before the start of the Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup, the No. 39 Quicken Loans Chevrolet has been saving his best for the most important part of the season.
This weekend, the Sprint Cup Series returns to Michigan International Speedway for the Pure Michigan 400. Currently, Newman is 14th in Sprint Cup points, although with his win at the Brickyard 400 a few weeks ago, he holds the second wild card spot. The top 10 points leaders automatically qualify for the Chase with two additional wild card spots going to drivers ranked between 11-20 who have the most wins. With two wins, Kasey Kahne is in control of the first wild card spot.
If one thing is for certain, the next four races are going to be filled with excitement. Newman followed up kissing the bricks at Indy with a 4th-place finish at Pocono. Last weekend at Watkins Glen, a pit road penalty relegated Newman to a 14th-place finish. While Newman has two top-5 finishes in his last three races, he needs to continue the momentum to stay in the hunt. And it starts this weekend at MIS.
If history holds true, Newman has a good chance of doing just that. In 24 career Sprint Cup starts at MIS, Newman has two wins, five top-five finishes and seven top-10s to go along with a pole. The Indiana-native has made it known how much he enjoys racing at what’s known as the fastest track in NASCAR.
While Newman’s busy focusing on moving up in the points standings, he’s also racing to bring it home for five lucky winners. If you haven’t entered the Quicken Loans Bring It Home Sweepstakes, you’re missing out on an opportunity to win a monthly mortgage payment. In case you’re unfamiliar with the sweepstakes, here’s how it works. Anytime Newman finishes in the top five of any race during the 2013 Sprint Cup season, Quicken Loans will pay one mortgage payment for five lucky winners. To date, Newman’s brought it home for 20 people. You could be next!
