Newman’s most productive year by far was 2003; in his sophomore season, Rocket Man won 11 poles and eight races, half his career victory total. In four seasons with Stewart-Haas Racing, Newman has three wins. A strong qualifier throughout his career, Newman has 49 poles to his credit, tied with Bobby Isaac for ninth on the all-time list.
