Ryan Newman Finishes 20th at Sonoma for the Toyota/Savemart 350

I did not see much of the race, but Ryan Nemwan and his #12 Alltel Dodge Team finished 20th at the Infineon Raceway in Sonoman, CA.

Ryan Newman started 9th in the road course race, but I believe he fell to 20th with a late pit stop for fuel as most of the rest of the field had to do as well.

Newman did increase in the points standings to 13th. Not to bad to start the race 15th in the points standings, finish 20th, and increase your points standings to 13th!!

Newman has been flirting with the ever elusive 12th position in the points standings for weeks now. Everytime he gets close, his bad luck strikes again and he gets bumped back down a couple. He is now -96 points behind the #8 of Dale Earnhardt JR.'s 12th place in standings. Even though Newman gained 2 positions, he fell another 21 points farther away from 12th.

Hopefully there is better luck in store for Ryan Newman and his Penske Racing #12 Alltel Dodge team next week at New Hampshire International Speedway.
