RICHMOND, Va. Nike Air Max 90 Vita Herr . -- Ryan Newman does not believe Tony Stewart deceived him when he released him from Stewart-Haas Racing to make room for Kevin Harvick. At the time of the July announcement at New Hampshire, Stewart said the organization didnt have room for four drivers. A little over a month later, Kurt Busch was offered a contract to join the team. Furious fans have accused Stewart of lying to his longtime friend, which Newman said Thursday he does not believe was the case. "I dont think Tony at all lied to me," Newman said at Richmond International Raceway. "I dont have any of that feeling or emotion, and I dont think any of that matters because the plans that they made are for 2014 and I am not a part of that. I dont think there were any hidden agendas on Tonys behalf. Ive had a good relationship with him, and have been open with him, and my communication has been mostly with him in my whole relationship at Stewart-Haas Racing." It was SHR co-owner Gene Haas who did the deal with Busch without Stewarts knowledge, and most of it was completed while Stewart was incapacitated with a broken leg following his Aug. 5 sprint car crash. "I dont have any hard feelings," Newman said. "I know a lot of things became very tough for Tony once he became injured, and that (the Busch deal) kind of happened at the same time. Thats kind of like what we do in our business. Youve got to get through the tough times." Stewart has been bothered by the notion that he was not truthful to Newman, and said during his first news conference since the accident this week that he stopped watching all the NASCAR talk shows when former driver and current analyst Kyle Petty weighed in on the topic. "I was pretty disappointed to hear Kyle Petty say that we basically lied to Ryan and deceived Ryan," Stewart said. "Deceived was the word that he used actually. They said we deceived him ... in doing this." Although Stewart has had some conversations with Newman, he hasnt had a chance to have the talk hed like to about the Busch hiring. "Ryan and my relationship is still the same. Since this has happened the last week, I really havent had time to sit down with a heart to heart," Stewart said. "The biggest thing is I want him to focus on what were trying to accomplish this year, and even when we spoke earlier this year before we made the announcement at Loudon, we were both very adamant to each other that our friendship was going to stay the same and we both knew where each of us stood as far as the business side of this and understanding that it wasnt emotionally driven, that it was business driven, and that through this our friendship would stay the same, and this wont change that." For now, the focus is on Newman trying to make the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship for SHR. He heads into Saturday nights deciding race ranked 14th in the standings, 20 points behind 10th-place driver Busch, but with a win and a shot at claiming a wild card. Newman is trying to balance earning a spot in the Chase and putting together a plan for 2014, which he said Thursday hes close to announcing. Hes believed to be in line for a ride at Richard Childress Racing, and a deal likely became closer to completion this week with Wednesdays announcement that Jeff Burton wont return to the team next year. Newman admitted he spent time this week working on his 2014 deal, and also spent time on his farm, which was a nice distraction. "I spent some time this week working on next year, which I cant really talk a lot about, and some time on my farm because it was the first time it didnt rain," he said. "To me that helps balance out some of the mental sanity of dealing with next year. Ive actually watched and heard and saw some of Kurts comments on how hes focused on the race and how hes focused on the other stuff during the week, and Ive actually been the same way during the week."

The former North Texas player opened with rounds of 66, 63 and 70 to take a two-stroke lead over Canadas Adam Hadwin into the final day.
