    Ryan Newman, a driver on the Rousch Racing Team, suffered serious injuries in a spectacular Daytona 500 crash that left his car in flames.

    The crash happened about a football field from the finish line with Newman leading the Great American Race. Newman lost control of his car after contact from behind with Ryan Blaney. Newman’s car went head-first into the outside wall, then flipped in the air. After flipping over, Newman’s car was hit on the driver’s side window area by Corey LaJoie’s oncoming car. That impact sent Newman’s car skidding down the track on its roof before it came to rest past the end of pit road.

    Newman doesn’t drive for Gibbs. He drives a Ford for Roush racing.
