At the track he made his first Cup start, Ryan Newman goes into Sunday’s season finale at Phoenix Raceway not knowing where he’ll run another Cup race.
“There’s a chance this is may last full-time season, no doubt,” Newman said after qualifying for his 725th career series race. “I’m 43. Going to be 44 in a month. Odds are I’m not going to get an opportunity to do it with a team that gives me an opportunity to be a champion ever. That’s OK. I really just want to win some races.”
So, what’s next for Newman?
He still wants to race. USAC is an option. So are modified and “anything on dirt … just racing in general. I still love it.”
