-- Crew chief Mike Nelson and the Alltel team are taking chassis PRS-069 to Indianapolis as its primary car. The car hasn't been on the track since April 2006 when it was used at Martinsville Speedway. Newman qualified fourth and finished 18th in that event. The backup car is PRS-104. It was last used at Pocono in June. For that race, Newman started on the pole ¿ his third straight and his fourth of the season ¿ and finished second in the rain-shortened event.

Ryan Newman on Indianapolis: "Indianapolis is one of the biggest races of the year for Cup drivers. It ranks right up there with Daytona and Charlotte. Being from Indiana, it would be nice to get a win at the Brickyard. It¿s also getting down to the wire for the Chase and this Alltel Dodge team is so close. We¿ve had some good runs and we¿ve been making up a lot of ground in the last couple of weeks. We just need to put together seven more solid races to make it in this year. I fully believe that this team can do it. We¿ve had some time to relax and now we¿re ready to get back to racing.

Good luck to Ryan Newman and the Penske Racing's #12 Alltel Dodge NASCAR Nextel Cup Team at Indianapolis Motor Speedway for the Allstate 400 this coming week and weekend!!!

To add what you were saying- I got a great insider's look to Ryan's thought on being an Indiana native and the race at IMS on his podcast on www.alltelracing.com.

Its pretty cool to think a native has a good chance of winning this race...its about time Ryan pulled into VL!!
