Newman pokes fun in Indy at 'ogre' remark

The Associated Press

Maybe Ryan Newman can pal around with Shrek while he looks for work.

After all, what else should ogres do?

Newman said there was a reason why he showed little emotion after winning Sunday at the Brickyard.

"Ogres don't have emotions, you know that," Newman said.

It was a witty retort after Kyle Busch called him the name after an incident at New Hampshire.

"I mean Ryan Newman's the biggest stupid idiot out here, and he's a big ogre and can do whatever he wants because he can probably kick anybody's butt," Busch said two weeks ago.

True, Newman can - and he proved it when he beat everyone Sunday.
