    Are all those pictures of the crash really necessary?

    Prayers for Ryan and his family

    At this point I'm just glad he's alive. Hoping he can make a full recovery and be back on track whenever he's ready.

    We do know one thing though now:

    Even death can't pass Ryan Newman.

    Inspection clear. Hamlin official winner. Newman and Lajoie cars are headed to R&D

    So glad to hear Newman survived and does not have life threatening injuries. I'm hoping he can make a recovery and strap back in a race car.

    Hoping that NASCAR can at least get a good amount of data from this wreck to try to make the cars safer.

    Pull through, Rocketman.

    I won't post it in here but I found a picture of newman being extracted, he had a neck brace on but was hanging onto medical workers so he was conscious and did have use of his upper body which is great news.

    So glad to hear that his injuries aren’t life-threatening. Hopefully, we’ll have a little bit more news on his condition later on today. Scary, scary wreck. Don’t think I’ve ever cried at the end of a race, hoping that one of my all-time favorite drivers would be alright, and I hope I never have to again.

    I hear you man. I've always been a huge Newman fan as well. Screamed my lungs out watching him win the Brickyard, cheered him on to win the 2014 championship throughout the Chase, even watched him beat out Tony Stewart in the 500 in one of my first races I'd ever watched. The moment I saw him in that wreck tonight, I'd thought we lost another great athlete in this sport. I was refreshing Twitter every five seconds and sat down and waited on Press Pass for like an hour for an official word on his condition. Leading up to that was one of the most tense moments of my life. I was only a couple of months old when Dale Sr. passed away, I never had to deal with anyone this close to me passing away unexpectedly before. I'm so glad he'll be able to be around, not only for NASCAR, but also his children. I can't even imagine what Krissie is thinking at the moment as well.

    If you ever need to talk, my PM's are open @BrendonH12. I know how tough it was for me, I can't imagine what you went through.

    I've been watching the wreck in slow motion multiple times.

    That entire car warped and twisted in an unreal way. Newman is incredibly lucky to be alive.

    Newman had sooo many horrible flips and wrecks at plate tracks and was complaining about it that NASCAR has to change things...
    I guess after this one he had enough and will retire right now for good as he's glad he's still alive and probably thinking life is too short let me enjoy my life with my kids in peace..

    I know some of you may disagree with him on things, but here is a video by David Land about the events of what happened, and what he feels needs to change.

    I didn't listen to the video, but Nascar needs to do something about the bumpers of all makes at superspeedways. They've got to reshape them so it's safer to bump draft. Pushing someone in the draft even down the straights looks to be risky business as it currently stands. And it shouldn't.

    I think the cars a safe enough. After all, there is only so much you can plan for when cars are going 200+mph and there are 43 cars within seconds of each other. Shit happens. Anyone thinking you can't die or get severely injured in that sort of scenario, shouldn't be driving a race car. And if you aren't a driver, but a fan, family member, or team member, that's a reality they better realize.

    If Nascar could make it easier/safer to bump draft, I think that would go a long way if we are talking about driver safety. I think it certainly would have avoided what we saw with Newman. I don't think it would have helped with the Logano scenario though. That was just a case of being a dumbass. And you can't fix stupid.
