Shootout to the Finish Results in 11th-Place Finish for Ryan Newman and CAT Global Mining Team at ISM Raceway

“We battled pretty much the same issues all weekend. Our Cat Global Mining Camaro ZL1 was tight in Turns 1 and 2 and then loose in Turn 3. Obviously we weren’t happy with our qualifying effort but our car typically likes the long green-flag runs that are common at ISM Raceway so we made up the ground when the race started. Turns 1 and 2 was our biggest challenge but we were able to manage it and race the majority of the event in the top 10. We even drove up to fifth by lap 230. We ended up having a 12-lap shootout to the finish where we lined up ninth. I thought we had a top-10 finish in the cards but it just wasn’t meant to be. Shoutout to the Cat crew for a great job in the pits and thanks to all the Cat Global Mining customers for cheering us on today.”
