Ryan Newman, ratings news, and more...

Ryan Newman is going to be racing the #22 Fitz Motorsports car in the Nationwide series race on Saturday.  It will be his first Nationwide series race of the year.

P.J. Jones will be driving the #96 Sprint Cup car for Hall Of Fame Racing.  J.J. Yeley usually drivers the car, but failed to qualify for the road course race at Sonoma this year.

ESPN says that the Nationwide series race from Montreal scores a 1.5 rating which is up from the 1.4 rating it got from last year.  The Sunday race from Pocono got a 4.5 rating which is the same rating the race got from last year.
