Ryan Newman Ready to Race

DARLINGTON, S.C. — Every NASCAR driver is excited to get back to real racing, as the series will race at Darlington Raceway on Sunday. That includes South Bend native Ryan Newman, who has not raced at all since his horrifying crash at the Daytona 500 in February. In a conference call this week, Newman said his helmet was crushed when he was upside down and got hit in the driver’s door at 190mph. He says he doesn’t remember much of the race at all, doesn’t remember the crash or his time at the hospital, but he was able to walk away just days after that crash, and has now been cleared to race again.
