2013 Brickyard 400 (Indianapolis): Chevrolet NASCAR Sprint Cup Race Recap

It was a dream come true today for Ryan Newman when he powered his No. 39 Quicken Loans/The Smurfs Chevrolet SS across the storied finish line at Indianapolis Motor Speedway (IMS) and captured his first NASCAR Sprint Cup Brickyard 400. For Newman, who grew up in Indiana, this marked his 17th NASCAR Sprint Cup career victory and first of the 2013 season. He became the third driver to win from the pole position at IMS, joining Kevin Harvick (’03) and Jimmie Johnson (’08).

"Congratulations to Ryan Newman, Matt Borland and the No. 39 Stewart-Haas Racing Chevrolet SS team on winning the 20th running of the Brickyard 400," said Jim Campbell, U.S. Vice President, Performance Vehicles and Motorsports. "It was great to see Ryan clinch the pole with a track record run, and then go on to win the race. Great driving, race strategy, pit-stop execution and overall teamwork made the winning difference. As a native of Indiana, today's victory has a special meaning to Ryan and his family. He joins his team owner Tony Stewart as a winner at their home track, the Indianapolis Motor Speedway."

Johnson had a very strong run in his No. 48 Lowe’s/KOBALT Tools Chevrolet SS by leading 73 of the 160-laps. However, a slow, late-race pit stop by Johnson’s crew enabled Newman to subsequently move back into the lead and maintain it until the end. The two were the class of the field, leading a combined 118 laps.

Johnson finished second in the crash-free 20th Annual Crown Royal Presents The Samuel Deeds 400 at the Brickyard. He continues to lead the point standings and now holds a 75-point lead over second-place. Kasey Kahne, Johnson’s Hendrick Motorsports teammate was third in his No. 5 Great Clips Chevy SS, and two-time Brickyard 400 winner, Tony Stewart, No. 14 Mobil/Bass Pro Shops (’05 & ’08) was fourth giving Team Chevy a top four sweep.

"It was great to have seven Chevrolet SS drivers finish within the top-10 in Brickyard 400," added Campbell.

Matt Kenseth (Toyota) was fifth to found out the top five finishers.

Dale Earnhardt Jr. was sixth in his No. 88 National Guard Chevrolet SS and teammate Jeff Gordon was seventh in his No. 24 Pepsi Max Chevy SS. Juan Pablo Montoya finished ninth in his No. 42 Target Chevrolet SS.

With Newman’s victory, Chevrolet has now won 11 consecutive NASCAR Sprint Cup Series races at Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

"Winning the 2013 Brickyard 400 with Ryan Newman, and the 2013 Indianapolis 500 with Tony Kanaan is very special," noted Campbell. "It is the first time that Chevrolet has won both races at the iconic Indianapolis Motor Speedway in the same year."

The next stop on the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series tour will be Sunday, August 4 in Pocono, PA.
