Ryan Newman Net Worth – $50 Million
American racing car racer Ryan Newman has a $50 million personal fortune. The NASCAR Cup Series is where Ryan Newman, a professional driver, has accumulated his wealth. Ryan’s on-track earnings are just about $90 million as of this writing.
In the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series, he has over the years driven the #31 Chevrolet SS for Richard Childress Racing, the United States Army/Tornadoes/Haas Automation Chevrolet Impala for Stewart Haas Racing with Tony Gibson as his crew chief, and the #6 Ford Mustang for Roush Fenway Racing.
In South Bend, Indiana, Ryan Newman was born on December 8, 1977. He graduated from Purdue University with a B.S. in vehicle structural engineering. He earned his degree from Purdue in 2001, making him occasionally the sole active NASCAR driver with a postsecondary credential. In 2002, he was named Raybestos Rookie of the Year. The NASCAR SimRacing video game from 2005 was featured on the cover with Newman’s #39 race vehicle.
In 2008, Newman took first place in the Daytona 500. He was the 2013 Brickyard 400 champion. In 2002, he received The Winston. Ryan was leading the Daytona 500 in February 2020 when his vehicle was struck from behind, driving him into a terrifying collision. He had severe, but not life-threatening, injuries, so he was sent to the hospital.
Newman is a vehicle aficionado, which is maybe not unexpected. He has more than a dozen vehicles, and he particularly likes driving and repairing classic Chryslers from the 1950s.
The Ryan Newman Foundation and the Rescue Ranch are run by Ryan and his wife, Krissie. The foundation’s mission is to spread awareness of the benefits of pet sterilization and to promote the adoption of dogs and cats from animal shelters. In order for future generations to experience the beauty of the great outdoors, it also has the aim of educating both adults and children about the significance of conservation.
They provide students interested in a future in auto racing financing for college through the Rich Vogler Scholarship program, of which Newman was a recipient. Near the South Bend Regional Airport, the Indiana Board of Commissioners gave Newman a half-mile section of the recently reconfigured Lincoln-Way West (formerly U.S. Route). On April 29, 2008, a road in St. Joseph County, Indiana, was named in honor of Newman.
Two girls were born to Ryan and his wife. Four days before Ryan’s horrifying Daytona 500 disaster, on February 13, 2020, Ryan and Krissie announced their decision to end their 16-year marriage peacefully. They admitted in a statement that they remained close friends and intended to go on running the organization and Rescue Ranch together.
