My boyfriend's dad is a HUGE fan of Ryan Newman! And what's not to like? Ryan makes racing fun to watch! He's got 18 career Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series wins under his belt, including wins at the Daytona 500 and Brickyard 400. And could could forget the All-Star Race in Charlotte in 2002 when he went from worst to first to win, becoming only the second rookie in the sport's history to do that!
Ryan was nice enough to take time to call and chat about racing, his daughters, and the amazing Rescue Ranch that he and his wife Krissie run to promote humane education of animals. Here is our chat in it's entirety.
Watch for Ryan and the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series stars this Sunday afternoon at 3pm on NBCSN as they take to the "Magic Mile" of New Hampshire Motor Speedway for the Foxwoods Resort Casino 301.
