Newman to attend Slocumb fundraiser

Usually when the Nextel Cup Series visits Atlanta Motor Speedway, Ryan Newman and his team have a place to escape the race track and go fishing, courtesy of Juliette's Beau Slocumb and his family.

On July 18, Newman is returning the favor when he'll be the one of the guests at a NASCAR benefit BBQ at the Bass Pro Shops on Bass Road.

While at the fundraiser, Newman will be promoting his book, "Pit Road Pets," for the Ryan Newman Foundation.

Tickets for the 6 p.m. event are $30 in advance or $40 at the door, and anyone 15 years old and under will be admitted free with a paying adult.

Advance tickets can be purchased either by either calling 808-4743, in person at Macon Machine, Ingleside Gunworks or at the office of State Farm Insurance agent Chuck Thompson.
