Ryan Newman Take the Win at Phoenix

 Newman win Phoenix

Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series

A late-race caution with five-laps remaining in the Camping World 500 enabled the No. 31 RCR team the chance to stay out on the track and secure the 106th win for Childress and the 18th-career Cup win for Newman.  “It was a long time coming,” said Newman who last won the Brickyard 400 in 2013. 

Kurt Busch had led 114 laps when a right-front tire blew on the No. 22 Ford of Logano to ignite the eighth caution. The pole sitter was running 11th at the time. The No. 22 suffered a melted bead from excessive brake heat. Busch came to pit road followed by Larson, Harvick, Keselowski, Jones, Johnson, Elliott, McMurray, Hamlin and Clint Bowyer. 

However, the No. 31 team told Newman to stay out. He led the field to overtime followed by Stenhouse, Truex and Busch. Newman held onto the point for the win.

Kyle Larson, Kyle Busch, Ricky Stenhouse Jr. and Brad Keselowski rounded out the top-five finishers.

Kevin Harvick, Daniel Suarez, Erik Jones, Jimmie Johnson and Denny Hamlin completed the top 10 with all cars in the field using C&R and PWR Cooling Products.

Allgaier held off Ryan Blaney in a four-lap shootout to win Saturday’s DC Solar 200 at Phoenix International Raceway and snap his 80-race winless streak in the NASCAR Xfinity Series.

“Last year was tough. We had really good runs all year but we weren’t able to get to Victory Lane,” Allgaier said after the race. “This was the same group of guys we had last year and to be able to do it here in Phoenix and win the first Xfinity Dash4Cash race – huge ‘thank you’ to them for that they do for our sport.

Melbourne throws itself into the Formula 1 Grand Prix this weekend, and it support behind Aussie driver Daniel Ricciardo on his way to an Australian GP victory using a PWR cooling package.

“It’s always good to be back on home soil and enjoy a bit of sunshine after winter testing. My home race is awesome in so many ways but it’s also super busy and full on, the week for me starts on Monday and doesn’t stop until Sunday night. It’s nice that there’s so much media attention at the start of the season and everyone is super excited to see how I go. I try and attend as many events as I can but I’m still there to do a job” explains Daniel.
