DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. — NASCAR driver Ryan Newman was involved in a horrific crash on the final lap of the 2020 Daytona 500.

Newman was wrecked while leading the race and crossed the finish line with his car on its roof, engulfed in flames.

Newman's car flipped, rolled, and was hit on the driver’s side by another car, before it slid across the finish line upside down.

Newman was taken to Halifax Health for treatment. Roughly two hours after the crash, NASCAR read a statement from Roush Fenway Racing that said Newman is in “serious condition, but doctors have indicated his injuries are not life threatening.”
