Chat with Ryan Newman
Newman drives the No. 12 ALLTEL car owned by Roger Penske. He began racing full-time in the Nextel Cup in 2002, making 36 starts every year over the last five years. He owns 12 career wins and 83 top 10 finishes.
Newman and ALLTEL have teamed up off the track to create the ''My Circle 500'' sweepstakes. Ten lucky finalists and their 10 friends will have the chance to get a taste of what it's really like to be the stars on the track. From now until April 30, fans can enter the sweepstakes by texting ''RACE'' to 67783 or by logging onto MyCircle500.com.
The 10 finalists receive an all-expense paid trip to Charlotte, N.C. on May 24-27 for them and 10 friends and family members. During the trip, the finalists will tour the Penske Race Shop and meet the No. 12 Alltell Dodge team. The finalists will train like the pros leading up to the Alltell ''My Circle 500,'' which will be run by the finalists driving go-karts for the chance to bring home $500,000.
