Ryan Newman gains support from Progressive Insurance at Atlanta
Compliments of Roush Fenway Racing

Ryan Newman will go with the “Flo” this weekend at Atlanta Motor Speedway, as he welcomes Progressive Insurance to the list of partners on the No. 6 Roush Fenway Racing Ford Mustang. 

Newman leads all active drivers at Atlanta Motor Speedway with seven poles—including six straight from 2003-2005. He is tied with his mentor Buddy Baker for most poles at the 1.5-mile track. 

In 27 starts, Newman has two top fives and nine top 10s at AMS. Roush Fenway has six Cup wins at Atlanta.

“We’re excited to welcome Progressive Insurance to the team this weekend in Atlanta,” Newman said. “A major brand such as theirs fits well into the NASCAR space. Atlanta makes for a challenging and entertaining race with the differing options of the preferred line, so we’re looking forward to it with Progressive on board.”

Newman joined Roush Fenway Racing last season. He finished 15th in the Cup standings. Despite missing three races in 2020, following injuries sustained a harrowing wreck in the Daytona 500,  Newman, 42, is currently 26th in points.
“We’re inspired by the resolve of Ryan and thrilled to be working with him and the team at Roush Fenway Racing this weekend in Atlanta,” said Jay VanAntwerp, Progressive’s media business leader. “Racing fans, and sports fans in general, are craving live events, so everyone should be thrilled at the chance to see Ryan and his fellow drivers out on the track. Progressive’s competitive spirit is a great fit for the dynamic, fast-paced action of NASCAR, so we're looking forward to being part of that excitement with the No. 6 car wrapped in blue and white and sporting the Progressive name.

“Hopefully, we will see Ryan take the checkered flag on Sunday afternoon.”
