NASCAR America: Newman’s strategy worked to perfection in Phoenix win

Ryan Newman stayed out during the final caution to take the lead in OT and break a multi-year winless drought, proving his strengths when it comes to securing track position on late-race restarts on older tires.

Ryan Newman was one of three drivers that stayed out during the final caution in Sunday’s NASCAR Cup race at Phoenix.

The strategy worked to perfection as Newman went on to win the Camping World 500 in overtime, his first Cup triumph since the 2013 Brickyard 400 in Indianapolis.

It was also the first Cup win for Richard Childress Racing since November 2013, also at Phoenix.
