Noting Newman - April 23, 2007

I did not realize that Ryan Newman will be in the #12 KODAK Dodge this weekend.

The following is from

-- The Aaron’s 499 at Talladega Superspeedway will be Ryan Newman’s first NASCAR Cup race in the No. 12 Kodak Dodge Charger. This will be Newman’s 11th start at the 2.66-mile track and his 197th in the Cup Series.

-- Newman has an average start of 10.8 and an average finish of 20.9 at Talladega.

-- Newman has led six races for a total of 25 laps. He has completed 1,515 laps of a possible 1,888 for an 80.2 percent completion rate.

-- The No. 12 team is using chassis PRS-056 as its primary car this weekend. It ran in the 2006 Daytona 500 and finished third after starting 18th. The backup car is PRS-099. It was driven by Newman in the 2007 Daytona 500. This car was also used last year at Talladega in May; Newman started 18th and finished 33rd.

Newman On Talladega: “Like every race at the superspeedways, you have to stay out of trouble. We’re taking the car that finished third at the Daytona 500 in 2006. We’ll be looking for some people to work with and hopefully, earn a good finish on Sunday without getting caught up in a wreck.”
