Ryan Newman to Race with Stewart-Haas

Todd MorseAnalyst IJuly 30, 2008

Tony Stewart's future is looking brighter because of Joe Gibbs Racing's inability to find sponsorship for a fourth team.  Thanks to that lack of sponsorship, Stewart's new 2009 Stewart-Haas racing team now has a verbal agreement with top tier NASCAR driver and fellow Indianan, Ryan Newman. 

Stewart, throughout his career in the Sprint Cup Series has driven the No. 20 car, will now drive the No. 14.  Newman will switch from the No. 12, which he now drives with Penske Racing, to the No. 4. 

18-year-old rookie Joey Logano, part of Gibbs' current Nationwide Series team, is expected to take Stewart's Sprint Cup ride in the No. 20.
