Newman lives dream in Indy victory


INDIANAPOLIS — Ryan Newman fulfilled the childhood dream of so many who grew up in Indiana by winning at storied Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

Newman, from South Bend, ended a 49-race losing streak with the victory at the Brickyard, and he did it by beating Jimmie Johnson. Again.

Newman set a NASCAR track record in knocking Johnson off the pole in qualifying, then used a fast final pit stop to snatch the win from the four-time Indianapolis winner.

Kyle Busch dominated to win the Nationwide Series race at Indianapolis Motor Speedway on Saturday.

Busch had the fastest car to win for the eighth time in 15 races. He led 92 of 100 laps and overcame a late scare after he fell back to third on the final restart.
