Bristol Rewind ... On March 16, Newman raced as high as seventh before a left-front tire issue slowed the No. 31 team's top-10 progress. Despite Mother Nature cutting the race short, Newman drove from 35th to a 16th-place finish.

Pick Newman's Ride ... The Quicken Loans "Paint Your Way to Dover" contest is giving race fans the power to select Newman's No. 31 Quicken Loans Chevrolet paint scheme for the upcoming Sprint Cup Series race at Dover International Speedway on September 28, 2014. Fans can visit QLRacing.com to cast their vote for one of three paint schemes that were selected from a pool of nearly 1,000 designs submitted by fans nationwide. The entrant whose design receives the most votes will win a trip to Dover, Delaware to see their custom paint scheme on track as Newman attempts to tame the "Monster Mile" in September. If Newman finishes first at Dover, the grand prize winner will also receive a prize of one year's worth of mortgage payments. Also part of the Paint Your Way to Dover contest, Quicken Loans has also partnered with three charities - Autism Speaks, Folds of Honor and the Childress Institute for Pediatric Trauma - to also take part in the contest. Along with selecting their favorite design, fans visiting QLRacing.com will also be able to select one of the three charities. The nonprofit with the highest vote count will then receive a $10,000 donation from Quicken Loans and the remaining charities will each be awarded $2,500.

What are your thoughts on returning to Bristol?
"Bristol is a lot of fun when you are moving forward. It can be miserable when you are just trying to maintain."

Is it a more mentally or physically taxing track?
"The speeds at Bristol are so much greater than they used to be. It used to be where they would fall off two, three or four seconds a run while fighting forward drive. Now it's not so much that, so it's pretty intense both mentally and physically."

What about the desperation levels of certain teams who are on the outside looking in at making The Chase? Will they be raised during this race?
"You just never know. We had the yellow lights come on with one-to-go last time, so who knows what will happen this time. We'll just have to wait and see and hope we are one of the cars in the mix to win."
