Newman on racing at Bristol:
“Bristol is a great race track and one I have always enjoyed racing at. It offers such a unique challenge as a driver, but from an outsider perspective is one of the great spectacles in our sport. We know what we’re capable of if you look back at our prior races there, and it’s our goal to unload a fast Kohler Ford Saturday night and come away with a solid performance.”

Last Time Out
Newman finished 20th a week ago at Richmond.

About KOHLER Generators
KOHLER Generators is a leading manufacturer of automatic standby generators, which connect to the electrical system of a home or a business and quickly restore power following an outage to provide security and peace of mind for everyday life.  KOHLER whole home generators are permanently installed outside a home, similar to a central air conditioning (AC) unit. The generator operates on natural gas or liquid propane (LP) and is wired into a home’s electrical system.  When power is lost from unexpected events such as severe weather storms, the standby generator automatically kicks in – generally within seconds – and can power hard-wired systems and appliances including air conditioning, heat, medical equipment, Internet and Wi-Fi, security systems and lighting.  KOHLER Generators is part of privately held Kohler Co., headquartered in Kohler, Wisconsin.  The company provides complete power systems including portable, residential, industrial, and marine generators; automatic transfer switches; switchgear; monitoring controls; and accessories for emergency, prime power and energy-management applications.  Kohler Power Systems has delivered energy solutions for markets worldwide since 1920.  Visit KOHLERGenerators.comfacebook.com/KOHLERPower, or Twitter at @KOHLERPower.  or more information.
