Watkins Glen Rewind ... Newman qualified 14th and battled back from a pit road penalty to race from 32nd to a 14th-place finish.

What makes Watkins Glen a challenge?
"Watkins Glen is so much faster than Sonoma Raceway. I think Pocono was a nice warm up to this race because of the fact that we had to shift. It couldn't have fallen at a better place on the schedule when it comes to preparing for this race. The speed is the biggest difference when comparing Watkins Glen to Sonoma. It also provides for a few more places to pass on the track, and that's always a good thing for us."

Since you've recorded a top-10 at Sonoma, does that mean you'll run well at The Glen?
"If you've run well at Sonoma, it means you are a good road-course driver. Odds are you will run well at Watkins Glen, but the tracks are quite a bit different so you have to take that in consideration and hope for the best."

Do you anticipate a lot of rolling of the dice by teams to try and steal a win at Watkins Glen?
"Watkins Glen is the same type of deal like Pocono, Indy and Michigan where the track is so long and the fuel mileage plays the biggest part of the teams' strategy. I think that can be as big of a question mark as any kind of a road course ace or anything like that."
