Newman hopes succcess will continue at Loudon
"That's actually kind of funny, because I used to say New Hampshire was my least favorite race track," said Newman, who has three career victories at the rural track, where the Camping World RV Sales 301 is set for today. "But it's far from that now. It's always been a good place for me. I'm not 100 percent sure why."
"New Hampshire kind of drives like that kind of track where your car is on top of the racetrack and you get everything you can," said Newman, who also has six poles at New Hampshire. "There is nothing to really make it go any faster. It's not like you are pushing the car on the banking to make it grip better. There's none of that really to speak of there, I think, other than just a little bit of our past, a little bit of our time and a little bit of us as far as the way we drive race cars."
"I feel like I'm competitive as a driver at all the tracks but, obviously, it takes a good crew that understands the car and the track and strategy and everything else," said Newman. "We've just done well there. It's clicked."
