Ryan Newman Drives the Caterpillar Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 to Top-10 Finish at Talladega Superspeedway

“I’m just happy for myself and the entire Caterpillar team to have been in front of the ‘Big One’ for a change. The start of our weekend saw us caught up in a practice wreck. It is what it is at a place like this. So many things happen here that are out of our control but we kept our primary engine and raced the back-up. Stage 1 did not go as planned for us but we managed to get back out front by Stage 2 to run in the top 10. My plan was to go when we could, but be smart about it and fortunately for us, we had luck on our side. We’ve been running well but haven’t had much to show for it as of late so I’m happy that this Cat Racing team can leave here with a ninth-place finish.”
