    Yep dead center on the drivers side A pillar. Not good. Soon as it happened I had flashbacks of 2001 all over again the way the crowd was somber and the other drivers were shook up.

    Prayers for Ryan Newman.

    Hope Newman is okay. NASCAR really has to do something about the last 10 laps often taking as long to run as the first 100.

    Fuck the race


    A stretcher is next to Newman’s car. Crews are using black screens to keep fans from seeing. And media has just been told to leave the pits.

    Joe Gibbs issues an apology for the Denny Hamlin team celebrating winning the #Daytona500 after the Ryan Newman wreck. Says they did not see the severity of it and are praying for him. Somber.

    They can start by doing something aerodynamically that doesn't let 45 cars run side by side for 500 miles then wreck each other the last 10.

    I watched the last couple laps of overtime and that was it. When nobody can pass without someone pushing them in the ass I have no interest in watching a whole race.

    Only thing I heard is that they took him to a trauma center.

    The finish was incredible but heartbreaking. Great racing. I hope Ryan is OK.

    The other accidents were just ridiculous, particularly the accident on the next to last restart. What an embarrassment. They could not even get up to speed without 3 idiots slamming into each other. I would of sent all 3 to the pits and made them stay there.

    Half of these assholes can't drive worth a damn. Logano wrecked most of the best cars by carelessly and aggressively bump drafting And then he was taken out by some asshole who thought he could pass on the apron. WTF!

    I was there when Newman crashed in 2003
    Was also at the race where Dale died
    No word until we got back to hotel where they said he died.

    It's remarkable that he survived that crash. The view on the broadcast didn't do it justice. You see some of the videos from track level and the grand stands and you can get a better feel for the pure speed and power of these wrecks.

    Glad he seems ok, though serious condition is still serious.

    Those cars are really not good when they do not turn left.....shouldn't the guy behind Newman that bumped him be suspended or fired or fined?

    If that was the NFL, effin Roger would have already fined Deebo.

    Man he is lucky. Seemed to take a pretty direct hit when the car was upside down from another car.

    I thought NASCAR used to have a rule that in the last 5 laps or something like that that restarts were single file. That would help a lot on the big tracks like Daytona. Double wide gets too many cars bunched up and all hell normally breaks out.

    Too many wrecks at the end of races. They need to allow bigger tires or more downforce or something.

    They took the restrictor plates off and are experimenting with spoiler packages
    Whether that makes a difference who knows

    That was a horrble wreck.I thought that was a fatality for sure.The car behind him wrecked him.The race just looks like smash up derby with a lot more speed. I really can't get into this kind of racing. Everyone exactly the same all packed in like sardines at breakneck speeds playing team smashup. Whomever builds the roll cages in these stock cars deserves a medal.
    These guys need a better way to seperate.
