Ryan Newman is in the midst of looking to lock down a spot in the Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup and the next track on the schedule, Atlanta Motor Speedway, is one where he starts out well. Newman has seven career Coors Light Pole Awards at the track, including six straight from 2003 to 2005 and his last pole at the track came in 2007. Last year, Newman finished in fifth place in the Labor Day weekend race at the 1.54-mile track.
