Ryan Newman released from Halifax Medical Center

      NASCAR driver Ryan Newman was released from the hospital on Wednesday, less than two days after suffering serious injuries in a fiery crash on the final lap of the Daytona 500.

Newman, 42, was leading Monday’s race when he was bumped into the wall by Ryan Blaney near the finish line. Newman’s No. 6 Ford flipped several times and scraped the asphalt, throwing sparks through the air.

LaJoie, who was blinded by smoke, then slammed into Newman’s car at full speed, sending the Ford sliding down the front of the track and across the finish line, sparks flying.

Safety measures put into place after the 2001 death of Dale Earnhardt at the Daytona 500 are working. It's now less likely for drivers to die while racing, thanks to the addition of such safety measures as HANS devices (mandated head and neck restraints) and SAFER barriers (energy-absorbing walls). The HANS (Head and Neck Support) device, which attaches to a driver's helmet to keep his head from snapping forward, reducing the compression on the spine. NASCAR made them mandatory in 2005.

Ryan Newman awake and talking

      Roush Fenway Racing said Tuesday that Ryan Newman was awake and speaking with family and doctors. The news follows a worrisome 24-hour period after his horrific crash on the final lap of the Daytona 500.

“Ryan Newman remains under the care of doctors at Halifax Medical Center in Daytona Beach, Florida. He is awake and speaking with family and doctors,” a team statement said.

Newman, 42, finished in ninth place Monday night despite the crash.

“Ryan and his family have expressed their appreciation for the concern and heartfelt messages from across the country. They are grateful for the unwavering support of the NASCAR community and beyond.”

Monday night, Roush Fenway said Newman was in serious condition at the hospital with injuries that were believed to be non-life-threatening.

Newman was leading the race when his car turned head-on into the wall after contact from behind by Ryan Blaney. Newman’s car turned upside down and was hit on the driver’s side by Corey LaJoie as LaJoie was traveling at nearly 200 MPH. The impact from LaJoie’s car sent Newman’s car skidding down the track before it came to rest at the end of pit road. Denny Hamlin won the race with a last-gasp pass of Blaney.
