RYAN NEWMAN AND THE GRAINGER TEAM BREAK RCR'S 112-RACE WINLESS STREAK WITH GUTSY PIT STRATEGY

March 20, 2017

"What a gutsy call by my crew chief Luke Lambert. I called for two tires and he called for none. I've won more races with no tires than I have with four. I'm just proud of these guys. We had a good car all day. We kept it out of trouble and collected in the end. I went into Turn 3 looking at my mirror. I knew Kyle Larson was down there, but it took my car forever to get going. I'm spent. I had the chills on lap 150. I'm done. This victory is just sweet for so many reasons. I've lost count of how many races it's been since the last time I've won-that's how long it's been. I've got to thank RCR and ECR, as well as our partners on the 31 including Grainger, Caterpillar, Coca-Cola, Chevrolet, and everyone else."
