Ryan Newman and Todays Race At Talladega

The weather at "dega" for Ryan Newman and his #12 Kodak Dodge Team toady is suppose to be PERFECT. Mostly Sunny with a high of 81!! Doesn't get any better than that!!

Catch the race today on FOX at 1:30 today! Should be a good one as Newman battles his way up from his 28th starting position.

Newmans qualifying wasn't that great in an interview he even stated that he does not look at Talladega as racing. He said most racing is 50/50 car/driver but that "dega" is more like 80/20.

Even though Newman Qualified in the back half of the field, he was third fastest in the drivers 2nd practice indicating that his car handles well in the least that is how I read it. He is also starting just a couplke spots behind team mate Kurt Busch. Busch and Newman have been working really well together all season.

So, even though Talladega is not Newmans "thing" or type of track, I am expecting a pretty decent finsih from him today. What do I mean by decent...well for this season so far, that would be a top 20. I would be happy with that.

Good luck to Ryan Newman and his Penske Racing #12 Kodak Dodge NASCAR Nextel Cup Team today for the Aaron's 499 at Talladega Superspeedway!!
