Newman was actually leading when Ryan Blaney contacted him from behind and spun him. His car hit the wall and flipped over, then got hit by Corey LaJoie. It was on fire when it finally came to rest. Newman had to be extricated from the vehicle. He is in serious condition, but luckily, his injuries are NOT life-threatening.

Seconds after the crash, Denny Hamlin edged out Blaney to win his THIRD Daytona 500. Watch the video of the last lap here:
