Ryan Newman brings momentum to Kansas after second at Talladega

After a narrow second place finish at Talladega Superspeedway on Monday, Ryan Newman and his Roush Fenway Racing team will look to carry that momentum into Kansas.

Making his 28th start at Kansas, Newman’s No. 6 Ford Fusion will again have pink numbers showing support for Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Additionally a pink ‘Driven for a Cause’ ribbon will be featured on the C-Post.

“Coming off an exciting finish at Talladega, we’re looking forward to getting back to Kansas this weekend for our second shot at it. Ricky showed some speed there in the spring and we’ve done a pretty good job of adapting to the package changes going back to tracks for a second time. We’re looking forward to the opportunity in our Roush Performance Ford.”

Newman ran inside the top-10 for much of the day when the NASCAR Cup Series visited Kansas earlier this year before finishing 23rd.

In 27 prior starts, Newman has an average finish of 18.7 with seven top-10 and three top-five finishes, along with one win (2003).
