The engineering major from Purdue University is on the hunt for a drive next season, and Sunday's win will go along way to prove that he fits on a team somewhere on the grid. That success for Newman could translate to a surge in results this week too. His Pocono...

The Indianapolis Conundrum

  While I watched Sunday’s Crown Royal 400 from the Indianapolis Motor Speedway I was torn. On one hand the lack of passing, terrible attendance, and made for TV cautions was making me think maybe this track has no place on the Sprint Cup Series schedule.
