    Even down to dirt if you are a champ then you ready for next step if you a champ in Nascar then run Nascar no float in a truck series or a mod series just cause you have the money.and for the said of it,Kyle Busch should not be the driver of what he owns in truck or anything else and that should go for all brands.if you Nascar then you not infinity and you not truck

    And now we know he didn't even have a scratch. My guess is he was unconscious for a time. But there is something fishy about all of this. Understand, I am happy as hell Newman is OK and walked out of the hospital 36 hours later. But man, this was sold as something so much worse than it really was and that perplexes me. Serious condition? Non Life threatening injuries? I guess NO INJURY qualifies as non life threatening. For some reason, the Powers that be sold this as something it was not. Flowers grow in it.

    That’s why blocking is bullshit. It almost always ends up with a crash. If someone has a car faster than yours then so be it , let them by. What’s to study Ryan tried to block him and it didn’t work. There’s only one person to blame in this crash, and he’s lucky to still be alive. And will he do it again, ah yes he will.

    Happy that Ryan is alive and them two little girls and his wife didn't lose a husband and a father But as far as I'm concerned if we're going to keep using this package NASCAR have to find a way to either make the car stronger or keep the cars on the ground this is the third or fourth time with this package that we seen cars flipping I am scared and it hasn't happened the same way every time the next time we go to a restrictor plate track we could be walking away what's another driver in the hospital or someone being dead so I'm very scared about what the Talladega races Heaven store for us

    NASCAR has been f**king with the car and the rules for years trying to make it more of a show rather than a race. All for TV ratings. Translated: MONEY! The Green-White-Checkers was created to make the race ending more exciting. In 2001 they screwed with the car's aero and suspension to create a more exciting "Show". How did that work out? The drivers are too scared to speak up. They don't want to end up like Tim Flock. Let's face it folks, G-W-C on a Super Speedway with restrictor plates is a recipe for disaster. Just ask Newman.

    @Kevin Richardson Hamlin in third came up and bumped Blaney in second making him squarely then came down to try to touch bumpers with Newman and knock him out. Hamlin has a way of doing that on a regular basis.

  27. Kevin Richardson

    Kevin RichardsonMaand geleden

    Newman dropped down to block Blaney and hopefully get the bumpers to stick. If that had happened, Newman would have won the race with a brilliant move and would have praised Blanket for pushing him to the win. Bumpers didn't stick with a less than desirable effect. Newman knew it was a risky move but worth the risk in that moment.

Haven't had a knot in my stomach like that for a long, long time. Glad he's gonna live, hopefully he'll be able to make a full recovery.

    At some point, nascar or someone else in racing is gonna have to come to the conclusion that pack racing is WAY MORE dangerous than the speeds themselves. Perhaps it's time to revisit restrictor plates, or, are we gonna wait until someone gets killed??!!

    Ryan Newman is an a55hole. I don't feel sorry for him. I met him leaving Martinsville a few years back. We (my crew) was leaving the track after the race when we met ryan and his date/girl friend leaving the track walking towards the rear parking lot. The fans were like, "Hey Ryan, better luck next time", etc. Ryan Newman was shouting at us calling us rednecks and warning us to stay away from his woman. No one was bothering his "date", no one was crowding him or her. No one was even pestering him for an autograph. I lost all respect for that no neck SOB that day and I wouldn't mind if he never raced again. That's my two cents worth, I call it like I see it hoss

    By the way what type of person realises that a driver needs extracted and screens are erected to respect privacy then not only films from a high teir then posts it onto NLgo. That sickens me as who needs to see that. I hope that whoever these people are never need their privacy respected during a medical emergency. Some people need taught respect; or given a slap. Sorry to rant but that really pissed me off

Safer Barriers, Hans Device, Stronger Rollcage, tire tethering,etc. I have always respected Ryan as a person first, then driver, one of the gentle giants. God speed Ryan, our thoughts and prayers are with you and the family.

    Racing is secondary? Bullshit! Winning is everything! Proof is all the crashes inside the final 10 laps of every single race. Nascar's fault as well, with all the rules and restrictions which has produced cookie cutter cars, and the same scenario every single time. Restrictor plate racing and drafting at 200 mph is and has always been a recipe for disaster. The big one.... Its always a running joke until someone gets seriously injured or killed. Pray for the drivers, cause nascar management is full of inbred fat daddy idiots who are clueless wonders.

    I was put off so much but the Hamlin celebration while Newman was trapped in the car. But we have to be careful to judge. Maybe he didn't know all what was happening. However, it would be one of the greatest moments in the history of Sports if Hamlin and Gibbs and the team walked into that Hospital room this week and handed that Trophy to Newman. Yes I know that's asking a lot of course ! Its such an accomplishment to win that Race. BUT, it would be not only uplifting for the Sport but for the Country as a whole at a time where we are so divided. Just my thoughts. Probably won't happen.

    I hope it works out better for him than Schumacher. That upper roll bar over drivers door took a beating and bent inward towards drivers head. He is lucky all that leaking racing fuel from split fuel cell bladder pooling up under the upside down driver area didn't go up in a fireball. There were flames licking up from fuel filler nozzle only inches away...it was like a slow motion horror movie waiting for the fire extinguishers to arrive. One hell of a race ,get better soon RYAN

    That was a Very strong blocking move and possibly illegal (at least it would have been in F1, I am not a huge nascar fan)...prayers for Mr. Newman but he put himself in that position by blocking the faster car...obviously just a racing incident but could have been avoided had Mr. Newman just maintained his position.

    Racing is secondary in NASCAR. Demolition derby at 200mph at these tracks to draw the fans to make mega bucks is primary. They build these cars like tanks. Why? So they can withstand these types of crashes. While safety should always be of highest priority, how about changing the cars and rules to finally do away with these ridiculously dangerous type of racing? Does anybody remember the Winston Cup of yester year? Back in the day when cars didn't go around every single lap as one freight train of cars? Back when you actually had to have a good tuned and well handling car to get the lead and stay there? Back in the days of Bill Elliot, Rusty Wallace, etc? That was when racing was racing. Now days, you could have the most crappy car but as long as you stay in the slipstream and have someone bump you from behind, any body can win!! That crap isn't racing. So yes, racing is secondary in NASCAR these days. Give the fans what they want, big wrecks that involve the entire field of cars at the drivers expense. Ryan is a perfect example. You didn't learn from Dale Sr. dying. NASCAR is a joke.

    The worst hit, to me, looked like it was when he was upside down and that car smashed into his driver's side door area, but it was all open window there. That's when he took the worst of it, IMO. Then all of that gas leaking out onto the track, while some of it was on fire. It could have gone up at any moment, and we would have had to witness a death. Racing is serious business.
