Question: What is the biggest challenge getting around Martinsville?
Ryan Newman: "Martinsville seems as if it's about forward drive, what tire Goodyear brings and getting your car balanced not just in practice but get the balance adjusted from practice to the race. It seems like the track changes quite a bit from Friday to Sunday."

Question: Do you enjoy going to Martinsville Speedway?
Ryan Newman: "I think Martinsville is one of the best short tracks on the circuit. I think for me having won there is just fun. It's one of those that requires patience yet you have to be aggressive when you can. You kind of just wait until someone starts slipping in front of you and then you start working him over. Then you work that guy over and start on the next one. It's just a lot of fun."

Meet Ryan ... Newman is scheduled to sign autographs on behalf of Coca-Cola on Friday at the Wal-Mart located at 976 Commonwealth Blvd., in Martinsville, Virginia, at 6:30 p.m. ET. Then on Sunday, he is scheduled to stop by the Team Chevy stage located at the track's midway at 10:15 a.m. local time. He'll be there for a question and answer session.
