Newman was removed from the vehicle and taken to Halifax Health Medical Center. According to NASCAR, the injuries Newman sustained during the crash are serious but aren't life-threatening.
Denny Hamlin was crowned the winner of the Daytona 500. It's the third time he's won.
"I think we take for granted sometimes how safe the cars are, and No. 1, we are praying for Ryan,'' Hamlin said after the race.
