Hoosier NASCAR driver Ryan News was involved in a very serious crash during the final lap of the rain delayed Daytona 500 yesterday. The South Bend native was rushed to the hospital with very serious injuries. Fans watching it in real time feared the worst as you’ll see from this aerial view. Equally as eerie was that this was this week 19 years ago at the very same race where legendary driver Dale Earnhardt died in a multi car crash. Brought back a lot of very memories for many race fans.

And thankfully some good news. Our prayers are with Ryan, his family, his racing team and his medical team.
