    Not even one person thought.... "Bring the doctors and the trauma center to Newman!!!" Wow... dummies* *DOH!*

    My dad and I both saw that wreck on TV that night and we both found it very cringeworthy. I mean that was a pretty brutal wreck that Ryan Newman was in. I’m glad he wasn’t badly hurt from that.

    Am I the only person that thinks Nascar took advantage of this situation for some attention for their struggling sport. I mean they never identified one thing hurt on Newman other than "serious" and then miraculously he walks out the next day without a mark on him. A horrible looking accident but I'm thinking he could have walked out that night after a checkup.

    Crazy how he went from first racing in the Daytona 500 to the hospital just like that

    I can see Bill Mair making fun of NASCAR cause of one overly excited fan. The comments surely are! Washington Post is above such rual sports! It’s beyond them. Lots of video of this accident......they pick this one!

    That guy in the stands yelling at them to get him out is hilarious. Was he that drunk that he thought his voice would be heard??? Oh God, that's hilarious. Then again.....I was yelling at my tv to do the same thing and I was not drunk.

    There are a few drivers I can't stand, everyone does, but I would like to think that no matter who it is in a crash like this or Dale's crash 19 years ago, they are not critically injured or worse. I enjoy seeing the big wrecks, but only as long as the cars are the only things that are damaged.

    I know it is a big part of Nascar racing, but I really do not think it is a good idea to ride someone's bumper at 200 MPH. Fishtail waiting to happen.

    Ironic that tech is now to the point wherein the drivers could drive their cars outside of vehicle next to their largely unnessessary pit crew. We could use googlebots vs. Amazon bots to throw football, run football, PITCH to hitters, fill in for racers

Maybe it should say, - we are the resistance, we lost the election, we are not getting our way right now so let's say democracy is dead, we will continue to provide 93% negative coverage of Trump and ignore all of his accomplishments. Sorry for Ryan Newman, good luck!!! Like our country, he's gonna need it.

    WoW reminds me of what Sigmund Freud wrote in his psychological projection theory, which is the mental process by which people attribute to others what is in their own minds. For example, individuals who are in a self-critical state, consciously or unconsciously, may fantasize about having sex with their mother, but blame shift that manifestation onto others.
