DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (WFLA/AP) — In a scary finish to the Daytona 500, Ryan Newman took a wild ride along the track when he crashed trying to hold onto the lead.
Newman’s car flipped several times and crossed the finish line on its roof, engulfed in flames.
FOX broadcasters announced crews removed Newman from the car and he was being rushed to a hospital in the area. No other information was provided.
