(BROOKLYN, MI) - South Bend native Ryan Newman will officially be named to drive the second car at Stewart-Haas Racing in 2009 at a news conference on Friday.
The Charlotte Observer says sources have confirmed that Newman will drive the number-four Chevrolet for fellow Hoosier Tony Stewart next season. The announcement will be made tomorrow morning at Michigan International Speedway.
Stewart is leaving Joe Gibbs Racing at the end of the 2008 season to join what is now Haas/ CNC Racing as a 50-percent owner as well as a driver.
Newman announced last month that he would leave Penske Racing at the end of the season.
