NASCAR At Phoenix: Ryan Newman Says Carl Edwards Has One Coming

Ryan Newman conceded Carl Edwards likely didn't wreck him intentionally on lap 256 of Sunday's NASCAR race at Phoenix International Raceway.

But that doesn't matter much when a potentially good finish goes by the wayside.

Newman, on the outside of Edwards heading into Turn 3 and challenging for a spot in the top five, was hit broadside by the 99 car, sending him hard into the wall.

The Stewart-Haas Racing driver vowed from this point forward to race the man who finished second a year ago in the Sprint Cup standings far differently.

"I'm 99 percent sure Carl Edwards didn't do that on purpose, but I trusted him," Newman said. "Now he can't trust me because there is a lot to be had and lost; we lost a lot today. I don't know how much he lost, but that's not the point.

"I don't consider that a deliberate move by any means. (But) we know plenty of times in this sport, what comes around goes around."

The accident left Newman 21st in the final running order (Edwards finished 17th) and 18th in the point standings heading into next Sunday's race in Las Vegas.
