The announcement came shortly after Newman's wife, Krissie, posted a picture on Twitter of the driver standing and smiling with his two daughters in front of him. Before going off the air, the television broadcast said that Newman was being taken by ambulance to a Daytona area hospital.

Earlier in the day, Roush Fanwey shared an update that "the veteran driver is fully alert and walking around Halifax Medical Center".

The team said the 42-year-old IN native "continues to show great improvement". "True to his jovial nature, he has moreover been joking spherical with workers, household and mates whereas spending time having fun with alongside together with his two daughters", the assertion, which NASCAR retweeted, concluded. It was when Blaney tried to lock onto Newman's bumper to give him a shove that the cars didn't align properly and Newman was hooked into a spin.

Ryan Newman is standing up and smiling after a terrifying crash at the Daytona 500 that caused his speeding auto to flip multiple times and catch fire. For years, Newman has been critical of NASCAR's airborne crashes on superspeedways, dating back to a 2009 crash at Talladega.

The crash drew the attention of President Donald Trump, who wrote: "Praying for Ryan Newman, a great and fearless NASCAR driver".

On Monday, it was reported he was awake and speaking.

Driver Corey LaJoie said he was thankful to hear about Newman's recovery.

"While I was down there I did send up a "thank you Jesus for your hand of protection" prayer and at that moment I had no idea who I hit or the severity of it", LaJoie wrote on Instagram.

LaJoie hit Newman's vehicle, causing the auto to go airborne again, up and over LaJoie's vehicle, eventually landing upside down.

We're glad to see Ryan's condition is improving.
