3. It’s Time For Ryan Newman to Move On

Ryan Newman hasn’t won a race in years, And he probably won’t win one anytime soon.

Newman is like some other drivers in NASCAR (Kasey Kahne) where they haven’t been relevant in over a year and the organizations they race for would be better off taking a risk on bringing up a younger driver.

Michigan continued to be a reminder of how his time is over, as he finished in 11th and continued to be irrelevant for yet another week.

With Ty Dillion on the verge of coming up to the Sprint Cup Series, Ryan Newman’s days are numbered and fans shouldn’t expect him to be driving the 31 car much longer.

“The Rocket” is no longer the driver he used to be, regardless of if it’s him, his team, or Richard Childress Racing as an organization, something isn’t working and it’s time for both parties to move on.
