Ryan Newman
November 14, 2010


AVONDALE, ARIZONA

THE MODERATOR: We're joined by Ryan Newman. Tell us about your run.
RYAN NEWMAN: We had a good car pretty much the whole race. Got shuffled back there at the very start. Great pit stops, good strategy. I guess kind of an uneventful strategy race. Nobody took two tires, per se. We had a little bit of fuel drama at the end. A good effort for our team. Really proud of the U.S. Army guys. Veterans Day weekend here. We did the best we could and came up one short, but we're proud of that, too.
THE MODERATOR: We'll open it up to questions.

Q. What did it take for you to get to second? Couple of guys had to make stops for fuel.
RYAN NEWMAN: The 11, the 18, a few of those guys stopped. We were saving fuel the whole time. Made more sense to save fuel. We were two laps short. I don't know what their situation was. I don't know how much we had left obviously.
We just did what I thought we needed to do. If Carl made it, Carl made it. Supposedly the 42 was going to make it, and he didn't. I did what I needed to do to get to the end and that put us in second place. Good run. Good finish.

Q. Ryan, what are some of the things you're doing at that point, particularly at this racetrack when it's flat and you've really got to get off the corners? Are you getting out of it early and dragging?
RYAN NEWMAN: Just conserve energy. Brakes take up energy. How you get in the gas produces energy. But how you can do it can manipulate your economy.
It was a good run. No complaints. Just came up one spot short. I don't mind every once in a while coming down to a fuel mileage race if you make it. If you don't make it, they suck.
THE MODERATOR: Ryan, thank you for your time.
