QUOTE WORTHY
Newman on racing at Atlanta:
“This weekend will be the first real test for our team with the new package and a fast race track. Atlanta is historically a place that you can run anywhere at; up near the wall or down on the line, so it makes for some challenging but great racing. We’re looking forward to our debut with Acorns on the car this weekend and look to bring home a solid finish on Sunday.”

Atlanta... undoubtedly one of Ryan's 'Best tracks'... new package, and driver's car from a trading paint perspective. This race was MADE for our Rocketman!
