Newman started racing in 2005 in the
Young Guns Class at Riverside Speedway because he grew up around racing
and has always wanted to race. His first win was that same year.
Career highlights include his first win during his 4th race. He
went on to win 11 more and the Points Championship at Travelers Rest
Speedway. He ran 5 times and won 4 of the races.
The thrill of racing for Newman is
trying to get to the front and lead the whole race. His most
exciting racing moment was having to start in the rear and come back to
win. He's most proud of becoming the 2005 Riverside Speedway
Champion in just his first year and winning 15 times.
Newman's racing hero is David Presnell.
Of racing, Newman says, "Racing is a
very fun sport. If we could get a lot more people at the dirt
tracks in the South, we could keep our tracks and not let people buy
