Ryan Newman’s crash
Ryan Newman’s crash came right as he went into the lead during the Daytona 500. As it happened, Ryan Blaney’s bumper caught the back of his car. This caused him to flip in a fiery crash that didn’t look good at all. You can see it below in the video. Newman might have had the win if this wreck hadn’t happened.
I don’t follow racing but Jesus, why is this a sport?!
