Two weeks ago Ryan Newman held a wild-card spot in the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship.
Two races and two wrecks later, he's on the outside looking in as NASCAR's top series heads to Richmond on Saturday night for the final race that decides who's in and who's out.
Newman says at a sponsor appearance in Syracuse that ''We have to win. That's the bottom line. We have to get in Victory Lane to have a shot at the championship.''
Newman has one win and is 17th in points. Only the top 10 drivers in points are locked in for the 12-driver Chase. Positions 11 and 12 are wild cards awarded to the two drivers between 11th and 20th in points with the most wins.

KANNAPOLIS, N.C. – For Ryan Newman and the No. 39 Quicken Loans Racing team, this is it.
Saturday night’s Federated Auto Parts 400 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race at Richmond (Va.) International Raceway is the race the team has been working toward since the green flag dropped on the 2012 season 25 races ago at Daytona (Fla.) International Speedway.
This is the last race before...
It was confirmed today via Stewart-Haas Racing’s Twitter account (@StewartHaasRcng) that Ryan Newman has re-signed with the team for 2013. Unlike the last few driver signings, SHR at least lets everyone know the length of contract. It is interesting he only did one year, as I cannot see any pending openings at any other team that would be better than SHR for Newman. My guess...

Tony Stewart will be losing Office Depot as sponsor of his #14 Chevrolet after the 2012, noted by the AP via Yahoo! Sports. Office Depot had been in NASCAR going back to 2004 when it first sponsored Carl Edwards and moved to Stewart in 2009. This was the second big sponsor to tell Stewart-Haas Racing they will be leaving. Earlier in the year the US Army told them they would be bowing...
