DAYTONA – NASCAR veteran Ryan Newman was seriously injured in an explosive crash on the final lap of Monday’s Daytona 500.

Newman’s car went sideways, head-first into the wall, was hit at full speed by another car, went into the air, flipping twice and landed upside down in a cascade of sparks and dripping fuel.

Newman was removed from the crash scene by emergency crews and NASCAR reportedly kept media away while the car was taken back to the garage area.

Newman was taken to Halifax Hospital, where he was being treated by a trauma team.

In a statement to the media, Newman’s family said he is in “serious condition but doctors have indicated his injuries are not life threatening.”

No other details were available as of 10 p.m.
