Ryan Newman and E-Z-Go Team Turn in Top-10 Finish

“RCR brought a fast E-Z-GO Camaro ZL1 for me this weekend. We won Happy Hour and despite a disappointing qualifying effort, we had a good idea what the issue was and knew come race time, we would be fine and we were. We never raced outside the top 10 until NASCAR called a speeding penalty on us. I’m scratching my head over that, but we knew we had the speed to work our way back up with over 200 laps remaining. With rain threatening us, Luke (Lambert-crew chief) made a great call to speed things up by staying out at a caution. The call put us back where we belonged in the top 10 with less than 100 circuits remaining. It was a lot of fun out there. I’m still puzzled over the speeding penalty. I was afraid it might take a good finish from us, but the strategy call got us back into contention and it all worked out for us.”
