Jeremy Mayfield arrived at Dover International Speedway yesterday feeling that he had something to prove. Thanks to heavy cloud cover and cooling temperatures, the 10-year veteran proved something all right - that he could still drive fast. Going out midway through the NASCAR Nextel Cup qualifying session, Mayfield established a track speed record with a best lap of 161.522 m.p.h. His No. 19 Dodge Intrepid was a cherry-red blur, circling the one-mile concrete oval in 22.288 seconds, eclipsing the previous mark of 159.964 m.p.h.

A Bucks County teacher charged with sexually assaulting a 15-year-old student is now accused of secretly meeting with the girl and persuading her to change her testimony against him. Prosecutors also say the teacher's sister visited the student's father, asking whether the two families might "work things out," according to court documents unsealed this week. Authorities are considering charging Ryan Newman with obstructing justice and intimidating a witness, the records say. By yesterday afternoon, no new charges had been filed against Newman, a former art teacher at Holicong Middle School in Buckingham Township.

The teacher told the judge he was a good person who meant no harm. "I made a mistake that a teacher should never make," he said. "I fell in love with a former student. " The judge said it was not that simple - legally or ethically. Ryan Newman, a popular teacher at a Bucks County middle school, was sentenced yesterday to at least five years in state prison for having sex with a 15-year-old girl last summer. Judge Kenneth G. Biehn also scolded Newman for not fully acknowledging the harm inflicted on his victim.

Ryan Newman needed help and was running out of time. Finally, Clint Bowyer provided an opening with two laps to go at Martinsville (Va.) Speedway. Bowyer's aggressive move took out race leaders Jeff Gordon and Jimmie Johnson entering the first turn, allowing Newman to slide into the lead, and he held off A.J. Allmendinger (second) and Dale Earnhardt Jr. (third) on another restart for his first win in 23 races. Gordon angrily sought out Bowyer after the race, and heard the whole story.

Ryan Newman's determination and a convenient rainstorm made him a winner yesterday for the first time in his Winston Cup career. Newman barely held off Kurt Busch to take the rain-shortened New Hampshire 300 at Loudon, N.H. "This meant so much to me, but not just because I won," Newman said, alluding to the startup crew that has helped him to stardom as a rookie. "It was just awesome for the team. We've been looking forward to it all year, and it finally came in Loudon. " But for the third incursion of the day, when rain assured his victory, Newman might have been talking about still another second-place finish.

"Clint kind of cleared out Turn 1 for us and we were fortunate enough to be in the right place at the right time.

AFTER WATCHING Kurt Busch's race car temporarily "parked" atop Ryan Newman's car late in Sunday's Talladega race, I wondered whether NASCAR officials shudder when they watch major wrecks and think "We are so lucky a driver wasn't killed. " We've had so many major wrecks at the treacherous Alabama superspeedway that people just seem to take them in stride: "Oh, another big one. A mess, but let's move on. " Newman clearly was furious about the wreck that sent Busch's car airborne.

THE PERCEPTION some racing fans have of drivers' wives is they live in McMansions, buy expensive clothes, drive luxury cars and travel to races in private planes. Krissie Newman insists this perception isn't entirely true. "Some [wives] are glamorous, but most of us are ordinary people," she said during a recent interview. Krissie and her husband, Ryan Newman, have two young daughters. Ryan drives the No. 31 Chevrolet for Richard Childress Racing. Krissie grew up in North Jersey.

Victory was most certainly in sight for Ryan Newman until strategy snatched it away at Darlington (S.C.) Raceway. When a late caution forced teams to gamble on pit strategy, Newman made the wrong decision and stayed out on the track. The contenders behind him all stopped for new tires, and used the fresh rubber to blow past Newman on the restart. The result was Greg Biffle winning his third race of the season while Newman faded back to a fifth-place finish in Saturday night's race.

Ryan Newman and an empty gas tank spoiled Kevin Harvick's bid for three consecutive Chicagoland Speedway victories, with Newman pulling away at the end to win the Tropicana 400 yesterday in Joliet, Ill. Newman and Harvick both pitted to top off their tanks on lap 198 of the 267-lap race, hoping to stretch the fuel to the end. Newman made it, and Harvick didn't. Harvick is one of only four drivers who have won the first two races at a new track since NASCAR's modern era began in 1972.

AFTER ALL the racing, crashing and fighting, the Chase's final four are pumping their gas pedals, ready to roll. Denny Hamlin, Joey Logano, Ryan Newman and Kevin Harvick are the only drivers eligible to win the championship Sunday at Homestead-Miami Speedway. None has won a Sprint Cup series title. The champion doesn't have to win the Homestead race: He just has to be the highest finisher among the final four. As we pointed out 2 weeks ago, the champion could be Newman, who is winless this year and has led 17 only laps in the Chase (see accompanying box)

NASCAR's 2014 champion could be a driver who hasn't won a race this year. He's a driver with just four top-five finishes all year. Fortunately for Ryan Newman, two of those top fives have been the last two Chase races, leaving him second in points. Talk about a lucky dog . . . (A lucky dog, or in NASCAR-speak, a "beneficiary," is the first car a lap down when the caution flag waves that receives one of its laps back.) Newman was the last driver into the Chase, seeded 16th, as in last.

GREG ZIPADELLI knows Tony Stewart as well as anyone in NASCAR. Zipadelli was Stewart's crew chief when he won his first two Sprint Cup titles driving for Joe Gibbs Racing. Discussing the broken leg Stewart suffered in a sprint-car racing crash Monday night in Iowa, Zipadelli said yesterday on a conference call: "As many [dirt-track] races as he's run in the past, we're probably lucky that this is the first time we're dealing with this. We didn't think Superman could get hurt. We all know Tony loves to do those races.

TALK ABOUT awkward situations . . . Ryan Newman wins his first Brickyard 400 and receives a big hug from boss/teammate Tony Stewart. The Indiana natives were smiling and friendly after Newman won for the first time at Indianapolis last Sunday. In a postrace television interview, Stewart said Newman is "a great teammate and even better friend. " The problem in their business relationship is, with Kevin Harvick joining Stewart-Haas Racing next year, Newman will be out of a job. Newman's Indy win, giving him 17 in his career, should be a big boost for acquiring a new ride.

MAYBE IT WAS the stifling summer heat and humidity . . . Normally, people go to New Hampshire in midsummer to relax. But there was more verbal sniping than usual after Sunday's New Hampshire Sprint Cup race. Kyle Busch vs. Ryan Newman . . . Kevin Harvick vs. Marcos Ambrose . . . Paul Menard vs. Jeff Gordon. Set up the boxing ring near the garage area at Indianapolis next week: We may have some action. The sniping highlight was Busch-Newman. After Kyle's brother, Kurt, was involved in an accident with Newman, Kyle said: "I really hated that Kurt got tore up. I felt like he had the best car here today, but, man, just stupidity.

JIMMIE JOHNSON is racing for a sixth NASCAR Sprint Cup championship. Juan Pablo Montoya and Ryan Newman are believed to be racing for their jobs. Montoya, in his seventh Cup season, has only two wins, both on road courses. Newman is a 16-time Cup race winner, but with Kevin Harvick expected to join Stewart-Haas Racing next year, Newman could be in his final season at SHR. Montoya, 22nd in points, has finally shown improvement on ovals lately, recording two top-five finishes and one top-10.
