Ryan Newman is looking to keep himself in the Chase for the Sprint Cup at the AdvoCare 500 at Phoenix International Raceway this Sunday. With only two races remaining, Rocketman will likely need very strong finishes and some help from his fellow drivers to get near the top of the standings.

Newman has raced to three top-10 finishes in his last four races. He finished 9th at the AAA Texas 500 at Texas Motor Speedway last weekend and raced to back-to-back top-10 finishes at Charlotte on Oct. 10 and Talladega on Oct. 20. Rocketman finished fifth at last year’s Advocare 500 after starting 12th, so the track has been kind to him in the past. His second win of the season would really make things interesting in the Chase, where he is currently ranked 12th and 118 points behind leader Jimmie Johnson.

Newman has partnered with Oral-B to promote the Built in the USA campaign. This Veterans Day weekend, at Driver Introduction at Sunday’s race, in honor of U.S. Veterans, Oral-B and Newman will present Robin Kelleher, President and CEO of Hope For The Warriors, with the $100,000Built in the USA check to support their Above & Beyond program, which assists U.S. service members’ reintegration into the workforce. Phoenix is the fourth and final stop on Oral-B’s Built in the USA tour, so be sure to stop by the Oral-B booth to pick up some products and join in the fun if you’re at the track this weekend. Or stop by Fry’s Marketplace in Goodyear on Saturday from 4:30 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. for the opportunity to meet Newman and join the Built in the USA tour. Oral-B products are built in the USA, so start your day with the USA by using an Oral-B® Pro Health® All-in-One manual toothbrush.

Ryan Newman is looking to continue his hot run of late at this weekend’s AdvoCare 500 in Atlanta.

Rocketman won his first Sprint Cup race of the season last month after leading 45 of 160 laps at The Brickyard to take home the checkered flag. The next week, he started fourth and finished fourth at the GoBowling.com 400 at Pocono. He had consecutive top-15 finishes after that, but he slipped to a 21st-place finish at the Irwin Tools night race in Bristol. The Stewart-Haas driver is currently No. 15 in the Sprint Cup standings.

This weekend, Newman heads to Atlanta to improve upon last year’s DNF at the track. He has captured seven poles at Atlanta Motor Speedway and has raved about the pure speed the track offers. Newman has started in the top 10 in three of his last four races there, and he’s looking for another top pole position on Sunday.

Newman has partnered with Oral-B to promote the Built in the USA campaign. Atlanta is the third stop on Oral-B’s Built in the USA tour, and they will have a booth at the midway over the weekend. If you’re going to be around the track, make sure to stop by the booth to pick up some products and join the fun. Oral-B products are built in the USA, so start your day with the USA by using an Oral-B® Pro Health® All-in-One manual toothbrush.

He has six top-10 finishes this season and will be searching for his first win of 2013 at Daytona.

Oral-B, which is sponsoring this post, and Newman are teaming up with Hope For The Warriors this weekend at the Coke Zero 400 as part of Oral-B’s Built in the USA campaign.

Ryan Newman looking to make a run at Charlotte; will Kasey Kahne repeat?

Ryan Newman, driver of the No. 39 car for Stewart-Haas Racing, is gearing up for Sunday’s Coca-Cola 600 at Charlotte Motor Speedway (6:00 p.m. ET on FOX). Newman is coming off a 13th-place finish at last week’s All-Star Race in Charlotte and currently 17th in the Sprint Cup standings. He’s 147 points behind Sprint Cup leader Jimmie Johnson and has recorded one top-five, five top-10 and three DNFs in 11 races this season.

Oral-B, which is sponsoring this post, has partnered with Newman and will be at the race giving away product samples and hosting contests and giveaways. Oral-B builds approximately one million manual toothbrushes in the U.S. every day, so the company believes Memorial Day Weekend is a great time to remind you to celebrate U.S.-built products that are engineered to perform.

Newman has had some success at Charlotte during his career. He had three top-five finishes and five top-10 finishes at Charlotte during his time with Penske Racing. Since switching to Stewart-Haas Racing, Newman has three top-10 finishes at Charlotte, per Racing Reference. Newman has averaged a 6.9th starting position and 20.1 finish at Charlotte Motor Speedway (not including the All-Star Race).

So who else should we expect to contend for the checkered flag on Sunday?

Kasey Kahne figures to be top competition at the Coca-Cola 600. Kahne finished fourth in the All-Star Race last weekend, won the Coca-Cola 600 last year, and has recorded a top-10 finish in his last five races at Charlotte. Sprint Cup leader Jimmie Johnson will also likely be a favorite to win. He won the All-Star Race for the second year in a row and has been particularly dominant at intermediate tracks over the past year. Denny Hamlin has been a model of consistency at Charlotte posting top-10s in his last four races there, while leading 73 laps. Greg Biffle should be considered a threat this weekend; he has had two top-five finishes at Charlotte and led 393 laps there in the four non-All-Star races there the last two years.

In addition to appearing at Charlotte for Memorial Day weekend, Oral-B will also be at Daytona for July 4th weekend, Atlanta for Labor Day weekend, and Phoenix for Veterans Day weekend, so look out for more posts from us ahead of each of those races.
