Newman was trapped in the smoking wreckage and has to be cut from the vehicle
President Trump is ‘praying’ for Ryan Newman, who is in a serious condition in hospital following a fiery crash during the final lap of the Daytona 500 on Monday night.
Newman, who was leading the famous race in his No. 6 Ford Mustang, was zooming around the speedway at 195 miles per hour when the smash happened.
‘Praying for Ryan Newman, a great and brave @NASCAR driver,’ the Commander-in-chief tweeted out, just two days after his own highly-publicized visit to the raceway.
The incident occurred when Newman’s car was nudged up against a wall and flipped over just meters from the finish line.
