Ryan Newman Finished 7th At the Pennsylvania

Ryan Newman and the Mobile 1 Dodge team had a great day at Pocono for the Pennsylvania 500 finishing 7th and earning his 9th top 10 finish of the season.

Newman ran in the top 5 for most of the day and fell off just a little at the end of the race.

Newman even managed to grab 5 bonus points for leading a lap and maintain his 14th position in the points standings.

Even with a top 10 finish and 5 bonus Newman dropped to 100 points behind 12th. Kurt Busch moved up to 12th. Dale Earnhardt JR finished 2nd but fell to 14th after Kurt Busch's win. JR is only 7 points behind Busch.

Kurt Busch, Newmans teammate, by far had the strongest car today. He led 175 laps of the 200 lap race and ended up in victory lane.

Not a bad day for Rodger Penske having Kurt Busch in the winners circle and Ryan Nemwan finishing up 7th.

Kudos to Flyin'...remember a few years back when he won every pole and a bunch of races, that same smell is back in the air!
