Ryan Newman's fiery crash on final lap of Daytona 500 has fans, drivers hoping for the bestEmergency crews went to the scene immediately, and the race announcer on Fox said Newman would be extracted from the car and immediately taken to a local hospital. Such an insensitive picture when we don’t know his condition. Do better All the celebrating was ridiculous when the condition of a fellow driver involved in such a horrendous crash was unknown. Sending prayers to Ryan and those closest to him ♥️ RIP
