Ryan Newman visits his team shop for first time since Daytona 500 crash

A week removed from his serious crash at the Daytona 500, Ryan Newman was greeted with a standing ovation when he visited his team shop Wednesday in Concord, North Carolina.

Roush Fenway Racing shared photos on Twitter of Newman giving a thumbs-up and the caption, "so we had a special visitor today." 

Newman, the 2018 Daytona 500 winner, had been hospitalized in serious condition following the Feb. 17 crash but was released last week from Halifax Medical Center in Daytona Beach. Roush Racing said the 42-year-old driver “continues to show great improvement.” He was being treated for a head injury but there are no internal injuries. 

At Daytona, Newman had taken the lead in the final lap when Ryan Blaney's bumper caught the back end of his car, sending him drifting into the wall. His vehicle flipped and caught fire after it was hit by another car.

Denny Hamlin won the race after two red flags and two overtimes.
