NASCAR fans will be thrilled to hear some fantastic news that has come from Roush Fenway Racing concerning driver Ryan Newman. Newman has been treated and released from Halifax Medical Center after his horrific crash during the 2020 Daytona 500. News of Newman’s release comes after Roush Fenway Racing and Ford Performance each released statements recently asking for privacy and sending prayers to Ryan Newman and his family.
The image above shows Newman leaving the hospital holding the hands of his two young daughters. To say race fans, sponsors, the team, and Newman’s family are happy that he’s been released from the hospital is an understatement. Shortly before images of Newman leaving the hospital were released, a statement was released that said Newman was “fully alert and walking around Halifax Medical Center.”
The statement also said that Newman had been joking around with staff, friends, and family while he played with his daughters. There is still mystery surrounding Newman and his injuries as officials haven’t said what exact injuries Newman suffered after he was extracted from his destroyed car and sent to the hospital in serious condition. All fans know is that officials had said none of the injuries were life-threatening.
We can see from Newman walking out of the hospital that he appears to have no broken bones or paralysis of any sort. The assumption is that he suffered some sort of head injury in the accident. There has been no statement on when or if Newman will return to racing this season. Before the accident, Newman was in a position to win the Daytona 500.
