Penske History 5: The Road to NASCAR
While Penske Racing is currently one of the leading NASCAR NEXTEL Cup
Series operations with drivers Ryan Newman and Kurt Busch, team owner Roger
Penske has a long heritage in NASCAR. Penske won in his only NASCAR race as
a driver, in 1963, and he also won NEXTEL Cup Series races with drivers
Mark Donohue and Bobby Allison. After leaving stock cars in 1977, Penske
Racing returned for two races in 1980, with Rusty Wallace finishing second
in his first NASCAR race. That set the foundation for Penske South and
Wallace joining NASCAR in 1991.
Ryan Newman Wins Subway 600 NASCAR Phoenix 4.10.10
AVONDALE, Ariz. — Ryan Newman broke a 77-race Sprint Cup winless streak
Saturday night at Phoenix International Raceway, taking the lead after a
late caution and holding off Jeff Gordon in a two-lap shootout.
Kyle Busch was cruising to what would have given him a weekend sweep when a
caution flag came out with three laps remaining. When the lead-lap cars
pitted, Busch took four tires and came out eighth — behind six cars that
took only two tires and Jimmie Johnson, who also took four and was seventh
out of the pits.
Gordon beat everybody out of the pits, but spun his tires on the restart in
a green-white-checker finish. Newman then charged inside and took the lead,
and held on for his first victory since the 2008 Daytona 500.
"It's been a long time coming for me to get to Victory Lane," Newman said.
"I'm gracious to be here. This is the most emotional victory I've ever had
in my entire career just because it's been so long."
Newman, driving the No. 39 Chevrolet owned by Tony Stewart, had led only
two laps before the final two. That lead came during the first caution only
21 laps into what became a 378-lap race — instead of the scheduled 375,
already 63 more than last spring — on the oddly shaped mile track.
"I couldn't believe it. I saw the white flag and I was like I don't have
that far to go," Newman said. "Every restart, I had been on the inside and
I couldn't get going. ... I held my line and got a good shot off Turn 2.
That's all we needed."
It was Newman's 14th career victory in 303 starts, but the first time a No.
39 car has been to Victory Lane (286 races).
