As you can see by the numbers, California is not one of Ryan Newman's better tracks. Out of 9 races he has only led 7 laps and has an average finish of 17.3. His best finish here at Fontana is 3rd back in 2004 where he also finished 5th in the second race.

Ealier this year Newman finished 12th which was his best finish in 4 races at Fontana.

Newmans 2007 Chase opportunities are slipping away. If he does not have a good finish at California along with some bad finishes from those above him in the points, then he will not make the chase.

Good luck to Ryan Newman and the Penske Racing's #12 Kodak Dodge NASCAR Nextel Cup Team at California Speedway for the Sharp AQUOS 500 this coming week and weekend!!!
