RYAN NEWMAN ENDS THE REGULAR SEASON WITH TOP-FIVE FINISH AT RICHMOND RACEWAY

September 10, 2017

"What a good run for our Caterpillar Chevrolet tonight.  On the last lap, we finished in the highest spot we had been running the whole race.  Early in the race, I sped on pit road.  Unfortunately that put us in the back, which was then followed by a slow pit stop. Other than that, we had a great long-run car. We struggled on the short runs, but we just continued to fight, and the guys did a good job. It wasn't easy. We're not where we need to be, but we've got a chance (at the championship). We'll continue to work at it, get our cars better, and get our pit stops better, I have to improve, by qualifying better. It takes everything. Finishing third and having four top-10 finishes in the last five races has been a been a good streak for us, but you've got to win. We've got to put ourselves in position to win a race to get that guaranteed bye to the next round in the Playoffs."
