Ryan Newman, driver of the #12 Penske Racing Alltell Dodge in the NASCAR NEXTEL Cup Series, will sign copies of the charity book Pit Road Pets™: NASCAR Stars and Their Pets during the upcoming Michigan race weekend. The book features first-person stories and intimate photographs of nearly 50 NASCAR celebrities and their pets—including Ryan, his wife Krissie, and their four rescued dogs Harley, Digger, Mopar, and Socks.

The session will be limited to the first 125 fans holding an autograph session ticket. Autograph session tickets may be picked up at the Meaty Bone® tent beginning Friday, June 15 at 1-5 PM and Saturday 11AM-3 PM.

Newman will sign up to two copies of Pit Road Pets in addition to one other item per person during the autograph session.
