By AMANDA VINCENT
Ryan Newman’s surprise and overdue win in Sunday’s Camping World 500 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series race at Phoenix International Raceway made him the fourth different winner in the first four races of the season, all but securing a position for the driver of the No. 31 Richard Childress Racing Chevrolet in the playoffs.
Meanwhile, Kyle Larson took the championship points lead with his third-straight runner-up finish. Larson also is one of only a few drivers to earn championship, or regular-season, points in all race stages, so far, this season.
