PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Ryan Newman says he has a ``legit shot'' at making the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship field.
Newman is on the outside of a spot in the Chase. He's 118 points from 12th place with two races left before the field is set. Newman knows it won't be easy to make up ground, but he believes he can get there and compete for his first championship.
He says he won't change the way he approaches a race or how he races just to secure a spot among the final 12.
Newman also says he hasn't spoken to Joey Logano since the two drivers tangled on the track at Michigan International Speedway. Newman says Logano never apologized for causing an accident that sparked a heated confrontation after the race.
