A photo of a smiling Newman, standing behind his daughters, accompanied the tweet. Newman's auto skidded on its roof in a shower of flames and sparks across the finish line before coming to rest on the track's apron.
Newman was injured Monday night when he crashed on the final lap of "The Great American Race".
Roush Fenway Racing released an update on its driver on Tuesday, around 20 hrs following Newman's motor vehicle crashed into the wall at practically 200 miles per hour, he flipped around, a further motor vehicle boned him, overturned quite a few far more periods and stopped in flames. Newman was extracted from the burning race auto and rushed to a local hospital in serious condition.
Following the terrifying crash, NASCAR and Roush Fenway Racing released a joint statement concerning the status of Ryan's condition at the time.
Roush Fenway Racing has tabbed Ross Chastain as its substitute driver starting this weekend at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.
It is not the first time Newman had been involved in a serious crash in Daytona.
"We appreciate your thoughts and prayers and ask that you respect the privacy of Ryan and his family during this time", the team said.
Newman is expected to be OK, according to a team's statement.
The crash drew the attention of President Donald Trump, who wrote: "Praying for Ryan Newman, a great and courageous NASCAR driver".
Wednesday's update comes after reports that the driver was "awake" following the crash on Monday.
"This is awesome", Austin Dillon wrote on Twitter.
Driver Corey LaJoie, who was unable to avoid hitting Newman's vehicle after it hit the wall, was thankful to make it out of the crash alive and to hear about Newman's recovery. 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.
