During the Daytona 500 race of the NASCAR Cup Series American racing series, several serious accidents occurred, the most significant of which occurred on the final lap. Ryan Blaney, who was in second place, when trying to overtake, came into contact with Ryan Newman’s car, which was in first position.

The pilot was rushed to the Halifax Medical Center, where he was given emergency assistance. An official statement from NASCAR says that Newman is in serious condition, but his injuries are not life threatening.

For the second year in a row, Danny Hamlin won the race, becoming the seventh-ever pilot to finish first at Dayton three or more times.
