With seven poles, three victories and 15 top-10 finishes in 24 career NASCAR Sprint Cup starts, Ryan Newman knows what it takes to win at New Hampshire.

Friday, Newman executed a last-lap pass to best a 20-car field and win the Whelen All-Star Shootout for Modified cars. Justin Bonsignore of Holtsville, N.Y., finished second and Mike Stefanik of Coventry, R.I., was third.

“This isn’t the ‘raciest’ track we go to but it doesn’t mean you can’t go to Victory Lane at the end of the day,” Newman said. “We weren’t great during the race but, obviously, we were good enough.

“I’ve always been a big fan of the Modifieds. They’re pretty much the ultimate race car to me – just a lot of fun to drive. Coming up here and being able to race them is an honor for me.”
