INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - Ryan Newman fulfilled the childhood dream of so many who grew up in Indiana - winning at storied Indianapolis Motor Speedway.


The driver from South Bend ended a 49-race losing streak with Sunday's victory at the Brickyard, and he did it by beating Jimmie Johnson.


Again.


Newman knocked Johnson off the pole in qualifying then used a fast final pit stop Sunday to snatch the win from the four-time Indianapolis winner.


Newman and Johnson were the class of the field, but it was Johnson who dominated the race and appeared to be just a bit better. But Johnson pitted from the lead with 27 laps remaining and it was a slow final stop for the Hendrick Motorsports crew.


Newman pitted after that and took only two tires to move into the lead.
