Bio

Heading into his 18th full season in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series in 2019, Daytona 500 Champion Ryan Newman will pilot the iconic No. 6 Ford Mustang for Roush Fenway Racing. Newman becomes the fifth driver in the No. 6 for NASCAR’s winningest owner, Jack Roush, a car that has visited victory lane 36 times, captured 41 poles and led over 11,400 laps under the Roush Fenway umbrella.
Newman has led over 4,800 laps and his 51 poles are the ninth most in NASCAR history. He was named the Cup Series rookie of the year in 2002 and won the 2008 Daytona 500 and the 2013 Brickyard 400. He has finished inside the top 10 of the final Cup standings on seven occasions; including a second-place finish in 2014, and has qualified for the NASCAR Cup playoffs on eight different occasions since its inception in 2004. He was also named NASCAR Driver of the Year in 2003.
The South Bend, Indiana, native spent the last five seasons with Richard Childress Racing in the No. 31, where he claimed one win (Phoenix – 2017) 63 top-10s, 19 top-fives and three playoff berths.
Prior to his five-year stint at RCR, Newman spent five seasons with Stewart-Haas Racing, where he was a four-time winner with 78 top-10 and 30 top-five finishes. In his first year with SHR in 2009, Newman earned a berth in NASCAR’s Chase, where he finished ninth in the final standings. The 2010 season produced a November win for Newman at Phoenix, one of his two wins at the track.
The following year, Newman made his fourth appearance in the Chase and finished 10th. His 16th-career win followed in 2012 at Martinsville Speedway in April as he closed out the season 14th in points.
In 2013, another crown jewel was added to the driver’s win column. Newman started from the pole and kissed the famed bricks after winning the Brickyard 400 at Indianapolis Motor Speedway. His winning form qualified him for the Chase, and two days later RCR announced Newman as the driver of the No. 31 beginning in 2014.
Prior to his days with Stewart-Haas, Newman drove for Roger Penske to begin his stock car career, one that would start in the ARCA RE/MAX Series back in 2000. He won three of the five ARCA races he entered that year, and eventually made his Cup debut at Phoenix that same year.
In 2001, Penske planned for Newman to run at least 23 combined events in both ARCA and NASCAR, while Newman attended Purdue University. In addition to five ARCA events, Newman ran 15 Busch Series races that season, winning poles in his second and third career starts and scoring his first career win at Michigan International Speedway in just his ninth career start. He also had a series-high six poles.
It was the following season, 2002, that Newman began full time in the Cup series, where he would win a season-high six poles, record 22 top-10 and 14 top-five finishes. Newman went on to edge Jimmie Johnson for the Rookie of the Year Award after claiming his first Cup win at New Hampshire that September.
The “Rocket Man” nickname held true in 2003 as he continued to lead the series in most poles with 11. Newman also won eight races, the most of any driver that year en route to another sixth-place finish in the standings. Postseason honors included the 2003 SPEED Driver of the Year, the National Motorsports Press Association Richard Petty Driver of the Year, the Benny Kahn/Daytona Beach News-Journal Driver of the Year and The Sporting News’ Dale Earnhardt Toughest Driver of the Year.
Newman successfully earned a berth in NASCAR’s inaugural Chase in 2004. For the second-straight year, he led the competition with most poles (nine), along with winning two more events. Team Penske also fielded cars for Newman in the Xfinity Series, where he won six of the nine races he entered.
The next two seasons saw Newman rocket to the top spot in qualifying seven times to finish out those years in 18th and 13th in the championship standings, respectively.
Newman launched his seventh premier series season in grand style by winning the sport’s most prestigious event, the 50th running of the Daytona 500 in 2008.
Prior to joining the NASCAR ranks, Newman’s open-wheel career started in 1983 when he drove in his first quarter midget race in New Carlisle, Indiana, and through the course of several seasons won more than 100 features, six regional championships and the 1988 Grand National Quarter Midget championship in the Heavy Mod division.
In 1993, Newman switched to full-sized midgets in the All-American Midget Series. He quickly made a name for himself by becoming the first driver to win both Rookie of the Year honors and the series championship in the same season. That same season, success continued, leading to the Michigan State Midget championship and induction into the Quarter Midget Hall of Fame.
Newman made the move to the United States Auto Club (USAC) in 1995 and in back-to-back seasons captured Rookie of the Year honors in the National Midget and Silver Crown Series. His first major USAC victory came in the prestigious Night Before the 500 at Lucas Oil Raceway in 1997.
In 1999, Newman balanced studying vehicle-structure engineering at Purdue University in West Lafayette, Indiana, while continuing to be a very active racer. He went on to become the first driver to win all three USAC National Rookie of the Year honors in the same year along with capturing the Silver Crown title.
Newman is married to Krissie, and together they have two children, Brooklyn and Ashlyn. Together they operate Rescue Ranch, whose mission is to promote, through its education, respect for all animals, as well as agricultural, environmental, and wildlife conservation.
