NASCAR Sprint Cup Series star Ryan Newman scored his third straight pole position at New Hampshire Motor Speedway today for Saturday's NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour F.W. Webb 100.

"Rocket Man" Ryan Newman will once again pilot the No. 7 Chevrolet, owned by New England native Kevin "Bono" Manion and sponsored by Aggressive Hydraulics/Menards.

Newman also swept both mighty Whelen Modified Tour races last year at "The Magic Mile."

"It's the same story, I was just a little faster than these guys," said Newman. "We all want to win but I have a blast racing for these guys. On Saturday, I just want to go out and put on a show for the fans."

Ron Silk will start beside Newman in second, Todd Szegedy will start third, Bobby Santos will go out fourth and ESPN analyst Andy Petree will start his first NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour race from the fifth position.

The NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour F.W. Webb 100 is slated to begin at 1:10 p.m. on Saturday.
