    I saw that but it seems suspect that another crew would say he's awake when his own crew doesn't know anything

    My brother was a firefighter/medic at Daytona for 10+ years. Nascar will not announce a death at the track if that is what it is. His longtime partner was one of the first on scene for Dale Earnhardt and it scars him to this day. This is not looking good.

    The roll cage was likely compromised by the flip, then it got hit by Lajoie pretty much straight on.

    Yeah I fear he suffered brain injuries on that hit

    Yep. That hit to the driver side window while he was upside down was tough.

    If he survived that hit on the drivers side it will be a miracle. Integrity of the frame was compromised and then he takes a direct impact at close to 200 mph.

    Jeff Gordon was on the verge of tears and I’m assuming all he’d seen was replays. Very reminiscent of the post races coverage when Dale Sr passed.

    Got a buddy who works some in nascar. Word is that he is alive but in critical condition.

    I really really hope this is the case. This looked exactly like a formula 2 crash a couple of months ago that killed the driver. The second impact was terrifying

    No, he had a run, got pushed, Newman blocked as he was moving. Just the worst case scenario for that type of track

    Not what I’d call dirty. It was the same run and bump draft that’s been going on all week, it just happened at the exact right moment that Newman made a move up. Perfect storm.

    Ya Blaney went low and as soon as he moved up Newnan moved up to block and just put their corners out of sync. I think blaney would have moved up further if not for hamlin, but just the worst case scenario heading into tri oval

    Newman’s hit into the wall was hard, going on roof not bad but that second hit was probably to the worst possible place and that car was going 190+

    Take that CPR report with a grain of salt. Any EMT/paramedic trained properly would be on the stretcher performing it. Not walking alongside

    I wouldn't expect an update on NASCAR America. .

    Check that. Looks like a NHL top ten show. I bet they didn't have enough time for production.

    You can tell the people just trying to insert themselves into it just by those kinds of comments. It was a hard hit but his crash looked pretty standard.

    And as bad as Newmans crash looked in real time it still wasnt terrible until you saw it slowed down and realized how bad that 2nd hit was.

    If he is dead the delay is making sure anyone who needs to know gets told first. If he’s still in limbo then there just isn’t any news to give as they’re still working on him. Doubt he’s stable or they’d say that.
