RICHMOND, Virginia -- After announcing last week he was leaving Richard Childress Racing after the season, Ryan Newman apparently is set to join Roush Fenway Racing in 2019.

Mutliple outlets reported that Newman will drive the No. 6 Ford next season for Roush Fenway, which recently announced that Trevor Bayne won’t return to the team. Bayne had been the full-time driver of the car since 2015 until four months ago when he began splitting the ride with Matt Kenseth, whose NASCAR future remains unclear.

Roush Fenway Racing has scheduled an announcement for 3 p.m. Saturday in the Richmond Raceway media center.

A story was the first to report the Newman news, stating it was a three-year deal.
