I understand that republishing an old article is a no-no, but I'm a blogger and those rules don't apply to us.
Ryan Newman's performance last Sunday at New Hampshire encouraged me to dig into my old articles, I found one that proves people never change. I'll quote the great Popeye the sailor "I yam what i yam and that's all that I yam"
In summation to last Sunday's race, the Busch brothers had racing issues with Mr. Newman, he actually wrecked Kurt.
Here is a post race quote from Kyle Busch:
"I really hated that Kurt got tore up, I felt like he had the best car. And was proud of them guys but, man, just stupidity. I mean Ryan Newman's the biggest stupid idiot out here, and he's a big ogre and can do whatever he wants because he can probably kick anybody's butt. So no sense in getting in a fight with him, but glad he's out of a job."
All is well with that statement except the one "glad he's out of a job" not appropriate, sorry Kyle, I love you man but celebrating the fact that a man with a family lost his job shows ZERO trace of being a gentleman, and I'm taking the high road on that comment, one more thing my friend, that apology was weak at best.
Just my opinion!
Having said that, facts are that Newman is not a very nice man on the track, he is a hard racer but the experts say that he likes to take but gives nothing.
Here is an article I wrote July3 2012, not much has changed since folks, the song remains the same:
Does this guy have any friends?
ESPN's Ed Hinton on NASCAR NOW called Ryan Newman the most inconsiderate driver in NASCAR.
I think by now we have all figured that out, Mr. Newman will not win a popularity contest among his fellow drivers.
Ryan Newman is a hard racer, no crime in that, he doesn't give anybody an inch but expects a mile from others.
He reminds me of the weight lifting bully, you know the ones, don't you, that guy with the steroid looking body who thinks he can intimidate everybody.
He got into Logano's face last year, the poor kid looked scared to death by the chest heaving Mr. Newman, Joey was a teenager for Gods sake, A KID.
Love to see Ryan Newman get into it with Mr. Edwards, I bet he be singing a different tune.
He also got into it with Juan Pablo Montoya, Mr. Newman allegedly punched Juan Pablo during a meeting with NASCAR, according to reports Ryan got fined 50,000 dollars.
Because Ryan Newman was the only one fined for that incident I assumed he punched Juan Pablo without provocation. Just guessing.
Ryan Newman's latest incident has spilled over to his crew who made it very clear they wanted to kick Kurt's **** for a incident on pit row, and to add insult to injury Kurt apparently bumped Newman's car after the race.
I have to agree that was wrong, but lets not forget about Mr. Newman's recent history of "EMOTIONAL INBALANCE" here is a quote from Mr. Newman on the incident with Kurt.
"it's easy to say that Kurt blew a fuse again. I'm not sure why he did it and tried to run over our guys and NASCAR officials. And nobody is. I think the chemical imbalance chemical imbalance speaks for itself. Kurt drilled me in pit lane and said that he was taking his helmet off, and he didn't see where he was going. I'm pretty sure there were 42 other guys that are taking their helmets off and doing whatever for the last 10 years, and that's the first time that's happened to me.......Circumstances I think are that he lied and was so frustrated that he doesn't know how to deal with his anger."
Oh well, can we say the pot calling the kettle black, chemical imbalance indeed Mr. Newman along with some heavy dose of full of oneself.
If there is anything positive we can say about Newman is that in this SANITIZED NASCAR ENVIRONMENT he is one of the few DRIVERS that keeps us entertained.
As always this is just a fans opinion and from what I understand everybody has one and I thank God for that.
NOTE: let me make something clear, I don't know Mr. Newman personally, I would bet anything he is a great family guy and a good person , but I'm NOT talking about his personal life, I'm talking about his racing life,you know, after he puts on his helmet.
