Are Newman and Borland a Package Deal?

Ryan Newman is fresh off his first win at the Brickyard, but many fans are already wondering what the future holds for him. He’s currently 16th in the Sprint Cup standings, but has already been informed by Stewart-Haas racing that he won’t be back with them next season. Despite this fact, Newman has had his share of success. He has 16 career Sprint Cup wins, and is third best among active drivers with 49 career pole awards. After Newman finds a home with a new owner, the next question to be answered will be whether or not his crew chief Matt Borland will follow him. Borland could try to work out a package deal with whatever new ownership group Newman signs with, or he could stay put with Stewart-Haas Racing and try to find a new driver he works well with. If Borland chooses the latter, keep an eye on both Newman and Borland’s new driver at the beginning of next year to see how the change affects their racing.
