NASCAR Cup Series driver Ryan Newman has been treated and released from Halifax Health Medical Center in Daytona Beach, Florida. He was involved in a horrific crash on Monday night.
On the final lap of the Daytona 500, Newman lost control of his vehicle approximately 100 feet from the finish line. This caused a horrible turn of events.
Newman slammed into the wall. The car then went airborne and spun, before his driver’s side made contact with Newman’s drivers side.
His No. 6 ride then went spinning from there before eventually stopping upside down. He crossed the finish line with the car upside down.
The crash caused his car to burst into flames. And gas was leaking from if.
NASCAR Medical officials had to stop the fire and gas leaking before they could tend to Newman. They also had to flip the car over in order to cut him out of the vehicle.
Newman has been at Halifax Health Medical Center since being transported there on Monday night. Less than two days later, he walks out of the hospital with his two daughters by his side.
There is no timetable for his return at this time. He will definitely miss the Las Vegas race this upcoming weekend and potentially many more this season, as he recovers at home.
