Krissie Newman’s Brother Is a Police Officer
Born Kristina Boyle on October 28, 1977 in Trenton, New Jersey to James and Joanne Boyle, she and her family now call Statesville, North Carolina home. However, her brother, John Boyle is based in Lexington, Kentucky.
Happy Birthday to my wonderful wife Krissie! The girls & I hope you enjoy your Birthday! Thanks for being a great Mommy & Wife!
Krissie and John’s grandfather, James Boyle Sr., was a World War II veteran and sound engineer who passed away in July 2010. A few months before his death, Krissie’s brother lost a colleague in the line of duty.
John Boyle is a police officer in Lexington. A fellow officer, Bryan Durman, was killed in a hit-and-run incident on April 29, 2010 while investigating a noise complaint.
The following year, Ryan Newman paid tribute to his brother-in-law’s colleague by putting the numbers 46600 on his car while racing in the Quaker State 400 at the Kentucky Speedway. The numbers were Durman’s badge number when he passed away. Ryan and Krissie even invited Durman’s widow and son to the event.
Krissie Newman Studied Law
The then-Krissie Boyle acquired a bachelor’s degree in criminal justice pre-law from Shippensburg University in Pennsylvania before moving to North Carolina to be closer to her grandparents. She had planned to study law and work in the local courts there.
She worked as a courtroom clerk for the Mecklenburg County Criminal Courts and was a paralegal for a criminal attorney.
But Krissie left her law career behind to learn more about stock car racing and help Ryan in his career.
Krissie’s Grandmother Set Her up with Ryan Newman
When Krissie was living in North Carolina, her grandmother had tasked her with showing a new guy around town, a certain Indiana native who raced stock cars. Without thinking much of it, Krissie wrote her contact info on a church handout and forgot about it until the new guy, Ryan Newman, called her less than month later.
“I had absolutely no clue who he was. NASCAR racing, to me, was a bunch of people who drove around in circles for hours at a time,” Krissie said about meeting Ryan for the first time.
After a lengthy phone conversation, they had their first date—dinner, a movie, and bowling. They hit it off and dated for three years.

Krissie and Ryan Newman Have Two Daughters
After three years together, the couple tied the knot on January 3, 2004. They went on to honeymoon in Wyoming.
They are parents to two daughters, Brooklyn and Ashlyn. Their younger daughter Ashlyn was born on July 16, 2012.
The Newman girls, B and Ash as they are called, are their dad’s fans, love dancing, and are major animal lovers.
Krissie and Ryan took to their respective social media accounts on February 13 to announce that they had decided to “amicably separate” after 16 years of marriage. They said they would continue to co-parent their daughters together.
On February 17, Ryan was involved in a fiery crash at the Daytona 500. He was rushed to the hospital, with the latest news reports stating that he suffered non-life threatening injuries.
Shortly after news of the crash broke, Krissie tweeted “Omg,” seemingly in response to her soon-to-be ex’s accident. Her social media has been flooded with support for her and her daughters.

Krissie Co-Founded the Ryan Newman Foundation
Both Krissie and Ryan Newman are avid animal lovers and own at least five rescue dogs: Mopar, Harley, Socks, Fred, and Dunkin. Together, they co-founded the Ryan Newman Foundation that focuses on education and awareness about environment and animal rights and advocates for adopting pets.
Krissie partnered with Project Halo during the Hurricane Katrina Relief effort in 2005. But, wanting to do more, she and Ryan founded the foundation, which also has scholarship programs.
Under the foundation, they established Rescue Ranch for the adoption and care of animals, which launched in 2012. Krissie’s father is also one of the top rungs in the organization. Rescue Ranch and Krissie have received several honors for their animal welfare work.
