#NASCAR Driver Newman Remains at Halifax Medical Center

Steve Newmark, president of Roush Fenway Racing just updated an anxious NASCAR Nation about the #6 Koch Industries Ford driver’s (Ryan Newman) medical condition. As you can deduce from the tweet below the update was purposefully generically neutral.

What Happened: After being in contention for much of the late stages of the race, Newman took the lead from Denny Hamlin on the final lap, using a bump draft from Ryan Blaney to put himself in position to win the Daytona 500 for the second time. As Blaney got a run off of Turn Four and attempted a race-winning pass, Newman blocked Blaney's advance, resulting in contact between the two cars. Newman's car slammed into the outside wall, flipping over and then being struck on the driver's side by Corey LaJoie's oncoming car. Hamlin won the race; Newman slid past the start-finish on his sparking hood for a ninth place finish.


Newman had to be cut out of his car before being transported directly to nearby Halifax Medical Center, where he remains today.

NASCAR Nation Prays for Newman
