Congratulations Ryan Newman

The 50th Daytona 500 has now come and gone and Ryan Newman from Penske South Racing has wound up in Victory lane.  It has been since 2005 since he has taken the checkers so hats off to him.  My Hendrick boys didn’t fair as well with Dale Jr’s 9th place being the highest finish for the team.  The Gibbs camp was very strong all day. Kyle Busch definitely had the car to beat for the majority of the race.  It was a pretty uneventful race until the last 30 laps or so. I think part of that is the new wing on the back of the cars. It really helps to prevent some wrecks that would have without a doubt happened in the old car.  Next week they are off to California.  Be on the look out for the Gibbs cars again but also look for Jimmie Johnson to get back up to the front.
