NASCAR Cup Series driver Ryan Preece survived a very scary crash on Saturday night at Daytona International Speedway. Late in the final regular season start, Preece collided with another car and then went into the grass in Daytona Beach, Florida.

Air went underneath the car and caused Preece to go for an unbelievable ride. This caused Preece to flip at least 10 times before coming to a stop.

While it appeared to be mere seconds on the flips, it must have felt like a lifetime for Preece. NBC cameras showed Preece out of his vehicle on his own power and then being put on a stretcher.

Preece is in his sixth NASCAR Cup Series season. He has made 26 starts this season and has made 141 overall.

While he has never won a race, he has finished in the Top 5 three times, including one this season. During the Cook Out 400 on July 30th, 2023, at Richmond Raceway in Richmond, Virginia, Preece finished fifth in his United Rentals Stewart Haas Racing car.
