After a race where Jimmie Johnson dominated the entire day, it would be Ryan Newman who would get the win and kiss the bricks at the Brickyard 400.

Newman had a fast car throughout the race, but with Jimmie Johnson staying out in front, it seemed like no one would be able to catch him.

Eventually Johnson would lose his advantage though, as a 17.2 second pit stop put Johnson seven seconds behind Newman.

The Brickyard 400 had only a handful of cautions, and finished without any late race wrecks. Some drivers like Gordon and Keselowski tried to play the fuel mileage game, but would have to pit toward the end of the race as it continued to go caution free.

With Newman knowing that his ride at Stewart-Haas Racing is over when the 2014 season starts, he needed this win to prove to other team owners that he can still get into victory lane.

Other drivers put on a solid performance, like Stewart finishing in fifth place, which should help bring him closer to the Chase.

Jimmie Johnson finished in second and still remains the points leader, but the Brickyard 400 was another race he should have won, but lost it all on a mistake.

Winner: Ryan Newman
