Newman Forced To Rear

CONCORD, N.C. - Rookie Ryan Newman was the fastest driver in Saturday's first Winston Cup practice session at Lowe's Motor Speedway but an encounter with the wall will send Newman and the No. 12 ALLTel Ford to the rear of the field in Sunday's UAW-GM 500.

"I just got loose," said Newman. "I didn't hit anything or do anything. I just got loose and couldn't save it. It's unfortunate, but hopefully, we can learn something and go on and be better in the race."

Tony Stewart will start Sunday's race on the pole since the field was determined by series point standings after qualifying was rained out.
