    Saw the video of Newman walking out of the hospital with his daughters. Makes absolutely no sense that he walked out the way he did. Like he was ok. INCREDIBLE!!!

    Show anyone you know (who is unaware of the accident) to watch the crash video, and then show them today's video.....and say, "By the way, that's the same guy."

    I love the story. The sport is a bit scary at times. But this one's a real winner!

    First, the great news. Ryan has been released from the hospital. The picture of him walking out with his two daughters is pure awesomeness.

    With the Daytona 500 being the SB of NASCAR, I don't see them changing anything drastic. They could have taken some of the banking out when they repaved, but they didn't. They made huge improvements after Earnhardt died. Apparently, a lot of people like this type of racing. A lot of fans want to see the wrecks. I knew a guy that thought a race was boring because there were no cautions for wrecks.

    I really wish people wouldn't react so quickly on social media. Hamlin and Gibb's racing got blasted for celebrating. Apparently, it didn't occur to anyone that Hamlin and team didn't know the seriousness of the accident. Good to see people "correct" them.
    Well peanut you know that there are idiots out there in the world, just like some of the trolls that were out there saying he had died...just terrible people!

    as for hamlin & team, there was no way he could have know that soon how serious it was & you could tell he then got word by the time he got to victory lane because he was very subdued & concerned for ryan.

    just gonna say this about the racing at daytona & dega...these things will never stop being a major risk factor so as long as they continue to run these two tracks with the restricted motors & pack racing.

    only alternative is either A. quit racing there or B. take the restrictions off to bring handling into play & not have constant wide open throttle..of course this would lead to massively increased speeds to the point that would be unsafe.

    some years back rusty wallace did a test at i believe dega with no plate & his average lap speed was 228mph

    I said it already, but I have no idea how these people survive the crashes they endure! The car technology is beyond my comprehension as are the actual driving skills....and guts!

    Those cars are amazingly built, because Newman not only flipped but got hit on his side of the vehicle! Serious but not life threatening....as far as I've heard. I know they understand the danger, but it is still a shock when these things happen.

    And it was eerie watching the gas pour out, with a flame nearby.

    I agree with PA. More out than in.
    Especially rad at close of stages.
    I predict Stenhouse will trigger one of the big ones.
    4pm ET start Monday.

    There's "aggressive" and "stupid aggressive". Stenhouse tends to be the latter. So I agree. He'll cause a wreck.

    how many cars crash out & how many finish? my guess is more out of the race than finish & as always could be a surprise winner.
    15 out. Bell wins.

    Those are the first things that popped in my mind.
