Tony Stewart Hires Ryan Newman

The Associated Press has learned Tony Stewart has hired fellow Indiana native Ryan Newman to drive the second car for his new team next season.

A person familiar with the deal says Newman will be introduced as driver of the number-four Chevrolet on Friday at Michigan International Speedway.

Stewart said in July he's leaving Joe Gibbs Racing after 10 successful seasons that included two Cup titles to become part owner of fledgling Haas CNC Racing. The new team will be known as Stewart-Haas Racing.
