Newman Eyes SRX Title With Stewart Lurking

The sixth and final race of the Superstar Racing Experience season takes the green flag Thursday night at Lucas Oil Speedway in Wheatland, Mo., with two drivers in contention for the championship. The 52-year-old would need to sweep the heat races (12 points each) and win the feature (25 points). Stewart points to the Goodyear radial tire that was introduced this season after two years of competing on bias-ply tire, as the reason for his struggles. “So, trying to figure out what I need to do with this tire versus what we had the last two years with the bias ply. “Just trying to learn a tire I think has been the hardest thing,” Stewart admitted. Newman has one victory this season after winning the second race at Stafford (Conn.) Motor Speedway. “The car itself reminds me of how we kind of started in the Cup Series,” Newman said.
