Ryan Newman in serious condition after crash during last lap of Daytona 500 | USA TODAY


NASCAR driver Ryan Newman was listed in serious condition and is being treated at a Daytona Beach hospital after suffering a horrific crash at the Daytona 50.

The 62nd running of the Daytona 500 will mostly be remembered for the grizzly wreck involving Ryan Newman on the final lap. The frightening crash occurred when teammate Ryan Blaney nudged Newman's No. 6 car ahead of Hamlin on the backstretch. But extra contact forced Newman to spin out, as his car flung violently into the wall and flipped into the air before being hit hard again by Corey LaJoie as he crossed the finish line. Newman's car landed on its roof and skidding across the track.

    That was a hell of a hit he took from the other car…. Yikes 😬

  2. I hope everything goes well for him and hope he gets well soon. my support for the family at this difficult time.

    • Why do you act like you’re in the loop with them. Nobody cares that you give good wishes. You’re like a hallmark holiday. Seriously though man. Get a life.

      @Scott Gossett awe you need a hug dude

    • @Scott Gossett wow. Did he say he was in the loop with them? Lots of people are sending good wishes and praying for him and his family, including myself. And all you can do is bash the well wishers? Not cool.

      no we aren’t, but thanks for the generic religious blanket statement social media post in the comment section.

    • Trapped In Time Surrounded by Evil you are good at being a jerk..

    • I’ve tried ‘praying’ for a cure for different cancers, autism, and to end world hunger on a regular basis but somehow ‘God’ never listens to them. More proof that he’s not as powerful as you Bible thumpers perceive him to be so it’s up to our best scientists and doctors to find a solution to these issues instead.

  14. With as little information coming out as there is, I wouldn’t be surprised to hear brain injury or paralyzed. Hoping for the best, preparing for the worst.

    Praying for you, Ryan.

  16. Weird the lack of info and update on his status.

    • I think Newman is dead. His wife left him the week before. Roush – Fenway release a statement with the *WRONG* date?
      NASCAR is saying Newman is alive hoping with time Newman will fade off into the footnote.

  17. Us Newman’s are tough Ryan,,, prayers work and lots of us are praying for you
