Newman was leading on the final lap of the 2020 Daytona 500 at Daytona International Speedway on Monday night when he received a push from Ryan Blaney. Newman’s car slammed into the wall and got airborne, flipped and landed on its roof. As other cars were collected in the crash, Corey LaJoie, unable to see where he was going, hit Newman’s car in the driver-side window. Track safety personnel turned Newman’s car upright, removed him from the car, and he was transported to Halifax Medical Center. Approximately a couple of hours after the incident, the first update of Newman’s status was released, stating he was in serious condition, and his injuries were not life-threatening.
Newman’s car and LaJoie’s car were transported to NASCAR’s Research & Development Center in Concord, N.C., for research purposes.
