Personal Life

Perhaps not surprisingly, Newman is a car enthusiast. He owns over a dozen cars and enjoys driving and working on vintage cars, particularly 1950s Chryslers.

Ryan and his wife, Krissie, operate the Ryan Newman Foundation and the Rescue Ranch. The foundation's purpose is to educate and encourage people to spay or neuter their pets and to adopt dogs and cats from animal shelters. It also has the mission to educate children and adults about the importance of conservation so the beauty of the great outdoors can be appreciated by future generations. They provide college scholarship funding through the Rich Vogler Scholarship program, of which Newman himself was a recipient, to students interested in auto racing careers. The Indiana Board of Commissioners dedicated a half-mile stretch of newly-rerouted Lincoln Way West (formerly U.S. Route) near the South Bend Regional Airport to Newman. This road located in St. Joseph County, Indiana was dedicated to Newman on April 29, 2008.

Ryan and his wife have two daughters. On February 13, 2020, just four days before his horrific crash at the Daytona 500, Ryan and Krissie announced that they had decided to amicably separate after 16 years of marriage. In a statement they revealed they were still friends and planned to continue operating the foundation and Rescue Ranch together.
