Answered Prayers: Nascar Driver Ryan Newman Released from Hospital After Horrific Crash
By Allyson Vannatta, Staff Writer
Prayers are answered after NASCAR driver Ryan Newman was released from Halifax Medical Center in Daytona, Florida, on Tuesday.
Earlier this week, an update was posted to Newman’s website that said, “He is awake and speaking with family and doctors.”
The statement continued, “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.”
In the last lap of the Daytona 500 on Sunday, Newman’s car hit a wall while trying to take the lead. The car ended up flying into the air and was hit by another car where it burst into flames.
After the crash, Twitter was flooded with celebrities and racing colleagues tweeting they were praying for Newman and his family. Since then, others have also tweeted about how thankful they are that he’s alive.
Thinking about and praying hard for Ryan Newman and his family right now…
