RYAN NEWMAN (No. 12 Alltel Dodge Charger)

Newman led Happy Hour with a fast lap of 133.210 mph in his Dodge Charger, but contact with another car put Newman's Charger into the wall with about five minutes left in practice and will have to go to a backup car for qualifying on Saturday. The backup car did not get a practice lap. According to crew chief Matt Borland, the No. 12 Alltel team raced the backup car at Phoenix last fall and in the second race this season at Richmond.

"There's no need for me to comment about what happened on the track," Newman said, referring to contact with the car driven by P.J. Jones. "Just look at the replay on TV and paraphrase it."
