1. They wouldn't even confirm that he was conscious and talking. The announcers were no doubt

hoping to at least be able to do that. It must be pretty bad.

plenty of friends and family that are, I hope he is ok.🙏

That looked scary as hell.

26. A shit-load of engineering goes into those protective frames

And the impact absorbing door panels do an 'aqueduct' job when the car is upright and the bumper strikes low, but all bets are off when the car is upside down and the open window is ground zero for the impact.

We'll have to wait and see.

27. Reports are coming out today that Ryan Newman is 'awake and speaking'....

So it looks like his helmet worked as advertised, but It doesn't take a rocket surgeon to determine he's severely busted up.

are not listing/describing injuries at all, which is a very bad sign.

Ryan Newman walking around hospital after horrific Daytona 500 crash
Feb 19, 2020

NASCAR driver Ryan Newman, who was hospitalized after a horrific crash on Monday during the final lap of the Daytona 500, is continuing to improve after a horrific crash at the Daytona 500.

Roush Fenway Racing released a statement Wednesday morning saying Newman is showing "great improvement."


"The veteran driver is fully alert and walking around Halifax Medical Center. True to his jovial nature, he has also been joking with staff, friends and family while spending time playing with his two daughters.

Judging from the photo, it looks like nothing is busted. I'm now guessing 'Mother of all Concussions".

40. Even greater news: Ryan Newman released from hospital... Walks out with his two daughters!!!



I'm still thinking 'Mother of all Concussions" and all the associated medical uncertainties. FWIW, NASCAR has a huge concussion protocol program, and I wonder if controlling medical information is part of it.

Every minute detail usually told. It's ok if it's privacy, but if it's too create drama..shame on them.

Non-related detail...saw a post he wrote on Feb 13th, that he and wife separated.

21. There's bumping and there's jacking up, from what I've learned.

I don't think his rear end got jacked up.

His HANS device should have kept his head and neck properly aligned to prevent a broken neck. But it doesn't necessarily protect the body in a t-boning crash.

My heart goes out to him and his family. I hope he'll be okay.

24. Newman was moving to block Blaney and got hooked.

Last lap, second car has a run, only hope you have to win is to block the car behind you. This happens routinely in NASCAR, especially on the two super speedways - Daytona and Talladega. The only variable is how the wreck unfolds... This one looked horrible, but Newman will survive. Conversely, Earnhardt Sr. didn't survive what looked to be a rather routine wreck.

14. The only thing that could have been worse, IMO

would be if he had been outside the vehicle somehow. If he survives this, he's going to be messed up.

19. The fire and the sparks inside the cabin were the most terrifying things to witness as

it was taking place. I know the fire-suits are pretty incredible in their ability to protect the drivers, but I've watched too many die on TV in front of me. Probably the main reason why I'm not nearly as into it as I used to be.

23. There are in-car fire suppression units.

I was more concerned about the gas plotting out of the car onto the fire and posed the fuck off the camera zoomed and fixed on that..... Wanting a front row to an explosion.

The safety features in these cars are incredibly well thought out.

25. I don't know. The briefing was very vague. It wasn't like

" he has three cracked ribs, a broken leg, and a lacerated finger..". It was NO description at all. This to me means he's got something worse .. paralysis or brain damage? Something they hope might be temporary.

Lajoie, who clipped him:

Blaney turned him hard right and into the outside wall. His car immediately flipped and was sliding on its side when LaJoie rammed into it.

"I got a big push there that last coming to the white," LaJoie said after the race. "I don't know who was pushing me and I kind of stalled out and I don't know who hooked Newman. I was hoping he would kind of bounce off the fence to the left, but he didn't and I hit him ... it was some scary stuff. Don't' get me wrong. My car was on fire. My seat belts grabbed all sorts of areas, but it was a good day for us. I hope Ryan is OK."

He has HIPAA rights just like all of us.

statement today..just that he was awake and talking. Still think he's got paralysis that they are hoping improves.

It sure looked like a bad one.

And exactly 19 years after Earnhardt died on the same track. Scary stuff.

34. My brother was just telling me he was there when

Earnhardt got killed. They had already left, thinking no big deal, justa wreck ( like Hamlin did the other day when celebrating). They were on 95 and when his friend called from CT and told him he died...others must have heard it at the same time. He said everyone on the highway slowed down to a crawl.

31. Well not sure. Long track, they will go too fast, which

causes danger. On the other hand, bunched up at high speed is dangerous too. I am sure they will be trying to coming up with some solution but it's hard to see what they can do. These plate tracks are just too damn fast.

41. He seemed to be leading, then went to block somebody trying to pass.

He got rear-ended, off-center, which turned him sideways. Then he got t-boned by someone who could do nothing to avoid it - another victim of the accident.

I hope the injuries are not career-ending. It sounds like they're not life-threatening.
