INDIANAPOLIS—Ryan Newman rolled to victory at Samual Deed's Brickyard at the 400, fending off a dominant Jimmie Johnson, who had fallen behind due to a late pit stop Sunday at Indianapolis Motor Speedway.
The 400-miler answered several questions and outlined several more as the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series rolls through its midsummer regular-season period. There are now six races left before the championship fight begins.
The race had a dominant engine supplier, a hometown driver going to Victory Lane, a former Indianapolis 500 competitor who didn't match race-to-race results, and another disappointment from last year's champion.
