NASCAR Driver Ryan Newman in serious condition with non-life threatening injuries after horrific crash at Daytona 500

Veteran NASCAR driver Ryan Newman is in serious condition at Halifax Medical Center in Daytona Beach, Fla., but his injuries are non-life threatening, NASCAR announced on Monday night.  Newman was involved in a horrific crash coming down the stretch in the final lap of the 62nd annual Daytona 500, where his No.6 Ford was spun out by runner-up Ryan Blainey, crashed into the side wall, went airborne, was crashed into head-on by another driver, catching fire and skidding across the finish line where crews immediately rushed to his aid.

Denny Hamlin claimed the checker flag, edging out Blainey by just 0.014 seconds, the second-closest finish in Daytona history.  The closest finish was the 2016 race, also won by Hamlin, by 0.001 seconds over Martin Truex, Jr.
