The new face of NASCAR circled Phoenix Raceway for a celebratory lap of his finest achievement. Chase Elliott, NASCAR’s most popular driver, was now a Cup champion, too.
NASCAR will return to racing this Sunday and it plans to honor frontline heroes at the fanless race, including a doctor from Minnesota.
NASCAR is postponing all of its activities and events through May 3, following the cancelation of the Atlanta and Homestead-Miami races due to efforts to help contain the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak.
Ryan Newman's racing team announced that he wants to return to racing as soon as he can but there is no timetable for that yet.
NASCAR driver Ryan Newman has been released from the hospital just days after he was injured during a last-lap crash at the Daytona 500.
Newman was leading in the final lap when he was caught in the back by another racer's bumper, sending him right into a wall. His car flipped, rolled, and was hit on the driver's side by another car before finally skidding across the finish line with his roof engulfed in flames.
Ryan Newman slid across the finish line in a crumpled heap of metal, sparks flying as his car skidded to a halt with fuel pouring onto the track frighteningly close to open flames. Everyone gasped as track workers placed large black screens around his car and worked to get him out. They had to wait two excruciating hours to finally exhale.
The Daytona 500 on FOX was interrupted for race fans watching over Hulu on Monday, but subscribers can still stream the race using the FOX Sports App.
