Ryan Newman's Practice 2 For The Samsung 500

Ryan Newman and his NASCAR Nextel Cup #12 Alltel Dodge team did not do as well in Practice 2 as they did in the first, short practice.

Newman posted a slower speed of 186.419 mph / 28.967 sec -0.112 behing leader - compared to his first practice speeds of 189.573 / 28.485 / -0.126. This means that he was about 3 mph slower equalling a half of a second.

Newman dropped from being the 11th fastest in practice 1 to 33rd in practice 2.

Hopefully Newman and his team were "just holding back". Maybe he was being cautious after Kyle Busch spun and crashed just 5 minutes into practice.
