Indianapolis: Cup results

Ryan Newman won the Brickyard 400 at Indianapolis Motor Speedway, after starting from pole position and capitalising on a rare mistake from by Jimmie Johnson's pit crew.
Indiana native Ryan Newman claimed victory in the Brickyard 400 at the iconic Indianapolis Motor Speedway on Sunday afternoon, finishing over two and a half seconds clear of longtime race leader Jimmie Johnson.

Newman had started from pole position and led for the first 30 laps before Johnson got the upper hand at the first round of pit stops. Johnson went on to lead for a race-high 75 of the 160-lap race but then had a slow final stop which allowed Newman to pick up the lead with 12 laps remaining, which he judged to perfection to clinch the win, his 17th victory in 424 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series races and his first of 2013.

Despite the disappointment of losing out on the race win, second place enables Johnson to stretch out his lead in the championship standings to an impressive 75 points over Clint Bowyer.
