Ryan Newman - Ryan Newman had a miserable 2017 season at 1.5 mile tracks, but don't overlook him at Atlanta. It's a great track for him and he's been top ten good "Performance Wise" the last five races. Last year Newman ran really well but finished a misleading 35th. Performance wise he was easily top ten good but he developed battery issues in the closing laps that led to him going to the garage which doomed him to a poor result. From the race it should be noted Newman started 2nd, finished 6th in Stage . . .
