Ryan Newman Wins Goody’s 500
The NASCAR boys roared through Virginia this weekend, providing a thrilling race for thousands of fun-seeking race fans. The 65 year old paper clip known as Martinsville never seems to disappoint any race fan on its two reserved Sundays on NASCAR’s schedule, and the same applied on April Fools Day.
After leading over 300 laps and dominating the race, Jeff Gordon couldn’t quite pull out the 200th victory for car owner Rick Hendrick, and neither could Jimmie Johnson, who also led a small portion of the race.
Ryan Newman, who had gone multiple laps down after pit road penalties, roared back and took the checkered flag, capping off an exciting weekend in Virginia.
We’ll see you April 14th, in Fort Worth!
