On Monday night, NASCAR driver Ryan Newman was sent to the hospital after a horrific crash in the final lap of the Daytona 500. An initial statement from NASCAR and Roush Racing revealed Newman suffered serious, but non-life threatening injuries.

As Newman cruised to the finish line, he was hit from behind, sending him into the wall. He bounced off the wall and his care flipped before others cars sent him flying into the air. Newman was taken to Halifax Medical Center in Daytona Beach following the accident.

On Tuesday afternoon, Roush Racing released another positive update on Newman's condition. "Ryan Newman remains under the care of doctors at Halifax Medical Center in Daytona Beach, Florida. He is awake and speaking with family and doctors," the statement read.

Well, Roush announced another update on Wednesday afternoon. Newman has been released from the hospital. He walked out of the hospital with his daughters in hand.

Newman led in the final lap and seemed primed to take the checkered flag when he was nudged from behind. The nudge caused Newman to lose control, resulting in the terrifying accident.

Denny Hamlin went on to win the race for the third time in his career.

It's great to see the remarkable recovery from Newman after such a scary accident.
