Ryan Newman rallied back from a pit road penalty to get back into contention Sunday at Phoenix only to have contact with Carl Edwards send him into the wall.

The wreck didn't knock Newman out of the race, but the damage was bad enough to cost him a couple of laps and he wound up 21st. Edwards ran out of fuel on the final lap and finished 17th.


"I’m 99 percent sure Carl Edwards didn’t do that on purpose, but I trusted him. Now he can’t trust me because there is a lot to be had and lost, we lost a lot today.  I don’t know how much he lost, but that’s not the point. I don’t consider that a deliberate move by any means.  We know plenty of times in this sport, what comes around goes around."
