Ryan Newman’s day ended early, and horribly Sunday. On lap 57 of the NASCAR Sprint Cup series Cheez-It 355 Newman exited turn 5 and went wide at turn 6. He shot across the turn and back on the track hitting the rear of the Ford driven by Greg Biffle. Newman’s Chevy was sent nose first into the inside wall. The car bounced back onto the track and was hit by the car driven by Michael McDowell.  Both cars exploded and McDowell’s was sent airborne into the outside wall.

“It’s just the wrong place at the wrong time.,” Newman said. “From my standpoint, (Greg) Biffle jumped the curb and hit the splitter or something up on the curb and got out and got across the grass. And I probably could have given him a little bit more, but I tried to time it so I could shoot past but he slowed down when he got back on the race track.”

Newman then went on to criticize the track. MORE>>>
