Ryan Newman Finishes 11th in Season Opener Exhibition Race at Daytona International Speedway

"We learned a lot today with this Bass Pro Shops/Cabela's Chevrolet Camaro ZL1. I had no complaints with our car's handling. Our pit crew also got to complete a few four-tire pit stops with the new pit stop rules. They too, learned a few things in race conditions. Unfortunately we got shuffled out of the draft and didn't have a chance to make the run at the front. Good news is we learned a lot and our Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 is in one piece." - Ryan Newman

Ryan Newman Survives Late-Race Wreck to Finish Eighth with the No. 31 Bass Pro Shops / Cabela's Team

"Congratulations first of all to Austin (Dillon) and the No. 3 team. That is awesome for RCR and ECR and all of our partners. To get a Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 in Victory Lane right away, that was special as well. For the No. 31 Bass Pro Shops / Cabela's team, we just weren't in the right place at the right time and got caught up in a little bit of a mess, and that was it. We just finished with a bunch of damage, but we still finished eighth." - Ryan Newman

Ryan Newman Starts on Front Row and Leads Laps Before Tire Issues Costs Liberty National Team Top-10 Run

"I'm not sure yet what happened to our right-front tire. It's unfortunate for this Liberty National Team. I think we led more laps in this race than we did all year. We started on the front row and took the lead on the first lap and by the end of the first stage we were loose, but our Camaro ZL1 was fast. I wasn't pushing it. There was no need to. Our car was that good. We lost two laps the next run because of a tire issue and the damage we received from it. At that point, it was all about strategy and doing all we could to race back onto the lead lap with about 230 laps left. I want to thank all the Liberty National guests and fans who stayed with us through the rain. We had a fast Camaro ZL1. I just wish we had the finish to prove it, but it could have been worse and glad we were able to battle back for a top-25 finish." - Ryan Newman

Ryan Newman Scores 11th-Place Finish for Cat Racing at Las Vegas Motor Speedway

"We struggled at the start and had really bad vibration, a set of tires, I think. That was good bounce back for this Caterpillar Camaro ZL1 team. We have some work to do it looks like. Those boys with the Ford's are strong here on the 1.5-milers and it was great to see we've shown some speed as well. We just have to get in there and battle in that top-10 for an entire race. I know we're capable. We had the speed here at Las Vegas when we tested and we just for whatever reason didn't have it this weekend. We will regroup. I want to thank all the Cat Racing fans for joining us at the track today." - Ryan Newman

Ryan Newman and Grainger Racing Once Again Lead Laps at ISM Raceway

"Our Grainger Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 had the speed today. The one thing we struggled to do last season was to lead laps and now we've led in two races so far. It's great to see the RCR Chevys up front. Our biggest challenge was maintaining track position and it is pretty evident what we need to work on and I'm sure we'll get it resolved. I'm just proud to have contended for a chance to win because laps led will soon convert into wins" - Ryan Newman

Ryan Newman and the Chevrolet Accessories Camaro ZL1 Team Finish 21st at Auto Club Speedway

"We made a major overhaul to our Chevrolet Accessories Camaro ZL1 last night. Our car fired off fast but wasn't as fast as we needed it to be on the long run like our teammate's car. Unfortunately, from the beginning our handling was way off. Our car was so tight in the corners and loose off. We're scratching our heads right now figuring out what went wrong. It wasn't for a lack of trying on our part. We threw everything at it, had one run in the top 10 but could never get the handling in our favor to stay up with the lead pack." - Ryan Newman

First Short-Track Event Produces 18th-Place Finish for Ryan Newman and eBay Motors Team

"This certainly wasn't the way we were expecting our day to go at Martinsville Speedway after unloading a fast Chevrolet. Our eBay Motors Camaro ZL1 was a lot better on Saturday and despite having the Trucks on track before us, I still thought we would be a lot better than we were today. We battled tight in the center and loose off the corners during the entire race. Oddly enough for a race at Martinsville, we had very few caution flags. We fine tuned this Camaro ZL1 whenever we could, but just couldn't get the balance where we needed to contend with the guys up front. We'll take a few days to unwind over the off-weekend and refocus for Texas" - Ryan Newman

Ryan Newman and No. 31 Grainger Camaro ZL1 Team Finish 27th at Texas Motor Speedway

"This Grainger Camaro ZL1 had good speed this weekend. We stayed consistently in or around the top-12 for most of the race, but tried to stretch our last run there and ended up blowing a tire and hitting the wall. I thought I probably could have left Texas with a top-10 finish if not for the blown tire, but things like that happen. It's a gamble that didn't pay off. I think the racing at Texas is exciting, and definitely fast, but we're still getting adjusted to the new surface. We'll be ready for when we come back in the fall, hopefully in the playoffs." - Ryan Newman

Solid Comeback For Ryan Newman and the Bass Pro Shops/Cabela's Team at Bristol Motor Speedway

"We had a top five car and just got the wrong spot on the restart there near the end. I wish we would have restarted on the outside instead of the inside. It was a good run for our Bass Pro/Cabela's Chevrolet. The team did a good job this weekend. Starting clear back like we did in 30th and then being as high as second during the race, it was a good team effort. It's certainly something to build on while going to one of my favorite race tracks next weekend. Thanks to all the fans who braved the elements and watched a good race with us yesterday as well as today." - Ryan Newman

Late-Race Mishap Costs Ryan Newman and the No. 31 Childress Vineyards Chevrolet ZL1 Team Top-10 Finish

"Richmond Raceway is one of my favorite tracks and to run just outside the top five, get assessed a pit-road penalty and then battle back onto the lead lap says a lot about this No. 31 Childress Vineyards Camaro ZL1 team. It's unfortunate on the restart with 30 to go that we got into the back of a car. Everyone started checking up and I just hit him square in the back. I did all I could but the damage cost us our race. I'm just so disappointed right now. We had a good car and a finish that doesn't reflect it." - Ryan Newman

Ryan Newman Drives the Caterpillar Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 to Top-10 Finish at Talladega Superspeedway

"I'm just happy for myself and the entire Caterpillar team to have been in front of the 'Big One' for a change. The start of our weekend saw us caught up in a practice wreck. It is what it is at a place like this. So many things happen here that are out of our control but we kept our primary engine and raced the back-up. Stage 1 did not go as planned for us but we managed to get back out front by Stage 2 to run in the top 10. My plan was to go when we could, but be smart about it and fortunately for us, we had luck on our side. We've been running well but haven't had much to show for it as of late so I'm happy that this Cat Racing team can leave here with a ninth-place finish." - Ryan Newman

Handling and Tire Issues Result in 33rd-Place Finish for Ryan Newman and Cat Racing at Dover

"Our Caterpillar Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 didn't respond the way we anticipated from the time we unloaded and throughout the course of the race weekend at Dover. It wasn't for a lack of effort. Then to have two tire issues during the second stage really cost us a chance to right the ship. At that point we went to the garage, diagnosed the problem and turned our race into a test session." - Ryan Newman

Ryan Newman Collected in Late-Race Accident Costing Bass Pro Shops/Cabela's Team a Top-10 Finish at Kansas Speedway

"We definitely rebounded from last week and for that, I am proud of this Bass Pro Shops / Cabela's team. We were competitive and made it into the top five. Our strategy of not pitting was a good call. I think we could have come home with at least a top-10 finish. We were just an innocent bystander when they crashed underneath me, in front of me and just got all wadded up. I had no place to go. It's just unfortunate. To get 14 laps from the end and tear up a bunch of cars like that just kind of stinks." - Ryan Newman

Ryan Newman Mixes it Up in the Caterpillar/Grainger Camaro ZL1 in the All-Star Race Before Hitting the Wall on the Final Lap

"This one is on me. I miscounted the green-white-checkered flag to end Stage 3 and I left off the gas too soon. It cost us a top-five on the final restart and instead we took the green in 11th. I hate it for the Caterpillar/Grainger team. We got off sequence on pit stops and the way the cautions fell from there, it really worked in our favor. I simply messed up. I did all I could do to regain the ground I had lost. On the final restart, we climbed back into the top five but unfortunately when we took the white flag, I made contact with the wall and lost all our momentum resulting in the 16th-place finish. We had nothing to lose so I went for for it in the end. There was a lot of jockeying for position throughout the race. The first stage we got as high as 11th, made some adjustments to loosen me up and I was way too loose to really contend for anything. We used the next caution to make adjustments, worked back up and then decided to gamble in Stage 3 by pitting with teammate Austin Dillon when most of the front runners stayed out. It paid off with the big crash and got us the track position we needed, but unfortunately we got bit in the end. It was fun out there. I hope the fans enjoyed the show we put on." - Ryan Newman
