Roush Fenway’s Ryan Newman To Return Whenever NASCAR Season Resumes


April 26, 2020

Ryan Newman is ready to race.

Newman on Sunday announced he will make his return whenever the 2020 NASCAR season resumes. The Roush Fenway Racing driver has been out of action since suffering a head injury Feb. 16 in a horrifying Daytona 500 crash. Newman, who was incredibly fortunate to not suffer more serious injuries, has remained upbeat throughout his rehabilitation.

“My play is to be back in the No. 6 Mustang when NASCAR returns to racing,” Newman said during FOX’s iRacing Pro Invitational Series coverage.

Newman’s return means Ross Chastain soon will exit the No. 6 Ford.

“I’m happy Ryan is returning to the No. 6 when NASCAR resumes,” Chastain tweeted. “He has a wonderful team around him and it’ll be great to see him back competing.

“Thanks to Jack (Roush), RFR and all their sponsors for letting me keep this seat warm while he was making his recovery.”

As for when the 2020 season could resume, NASCAR reportedly has a plan in place that could see drivers start their engines by mid-May.

Of course, everything is subject to change amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
