(AP) Ryan Newman said he has tried to contact NASCAR about his concerns following a late-race accident at Talladega Superspeedway and has not heard from them.


Newman's race ended last week when Kurt Busch went airborne and landed atop Newman's No. 39 as part of a 12-car crash. Newman said afterward on TV that NASCAR has made significant safety advances but still can't figure out how to keep cars on the track. He used a vulgarity in his interview.


Newman was not fined for his comments.


Newman said Friday after qualifying for the Southern 500 he tried to contact someone at NASCAR "who could make a difference." He said he has not yet gotten a response. Newman said he felt he fairly voiced his frustration over the Talladega crash.
