#NASCAR's @odsteve in the media center right now, says Ryan Newman is in serious condition, but that his injuries are non-life threatening.— Nick DeGroot (@ndegroot89) February 18, 2020
This is a massive relief to hear. Continued prayers for Ryan... #Daytona500
Ryan Blaney spun out Ryan Newman just yards from the checkered flag, and Denny Hamlin was the beneficiary in the #11 FedEx Toyota. Blaney said after the race he was attempting to push Newman to the win, but their bumpers locked up wrong.
For Hamlin, it’s his third Daytona 500 win in the last five years and his first back-to-back. He’s the fourth driver with back-to-back wins at the Great American Race.
