This was one of the best "Feel Good" races in a long time. After watching the usual domination by the usual suspects Ryan Newman takes a surprise victory during a green white checkered finish. He can thank Jeff Gordon for spinning his tires on the restart.

I have been a long time fan of Newman so this is especially good for me and other Newman fans. This win comes after a 77 race dry period when Newman won the '08 Daytona 500. In his second year driving for Stewart Haas
he has had a rough start sitting 22nd in the point standings. This is not typical of Ryan who is usually hanging in the top ten & always a Chase contender, but he has time.

Simply fantastic !!
