Outback to sponser Newman

Stewart-Hass Racing is adding another sponsor for 2012. The #39 Chevrolet driven by Ryan Newman will have Outback Steakhouse as primary sponsor for at least two races next year.  The formal announcement is suppose to be on Friday at Phoenix International Raceway.

It was just recently announced that the #39 car of Newman will have Quicken Loans as the primary sponsor for 9 races in 2012. It is believed that the deal with Quicken Loans is worth $4 million in total.

Current sponsor for Newman, the US Army will be the primary sponsor for 12 events next season. Haas automation is expected to be on the car for at-least five races next season as well.

If those numbers were true that would leave as many as 9 races without sponsorship.
