Newman Avoids Mess, Takes Checkered Flag

Newman improves to 8th in Sprint Cup Standings with win.
Ryan Newman admittedly didn't have the fastest car on the track at Martinsville Sunday, but he came up clutch when it mattered most.

On Lap 503 Clint Bowyer tried to be aggressive, instead, he wiped out the two best cars up to that point, Jimmie Johnson and Jeff Gordon.

Leaving a hole for Newman.

Sunday marked his 1st win at Martinsville as he improved to 8th in the Sprint Cup Standings, but more importantly he proved you don't have to have the fastest car on the track to be the first one across the finish line.
