By: Toby Christie – Follow on Twitter @Tobalical Motorsports, what a sport of brutal heartbreak and injustice. Ryan Newman, who just captured his 17th-career Sprint Cup Series victory in the Brickyard 400 of all places, currently heads into 2014 without a ride. The win marks his first of 2013, and it’s now the fourth-consecutive season in which Newman has notched a victory in NASCAR’s elite series. Oh and he has two Chase appearances in the last four years, and after the latest victory he is now in great position to make the Chase again. You have to look no further than Newman’s current team — Stewart-Haas Racing — to understand the injustice of modern day racing. Danica Patrick sells a lot of merchandise, she makes a lot of headlines, but she also doesn’t finish on the lead la...

Newman needs win No. 2 for wild card

What we saw last weekend in the Brickyard 400 from Ryan Newman was remarkable on so many fronts that it's almost unbelievable. He won the pole. He won the race. His whole family was there.

Chevy leading manufacturers' charge

Sunday's win at the Brickyard by Ryan Newman was Chevrolet's 11th consecutive win there. Overall, the numbers are even more staggering. In the 20 Brickyard races that have been run, Chevrolet has won 15 of those.

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.
