NASCAR Driver Ryan Newman's intense Daytona 500 wreck landed the racer in the hospital for his injuries, and now fans can see the entire medical team who treated him. Following the crash on Monday, Newman was rushed to the Halifax Health Medical Center so that doctors could assess his condition. They determined it to be serious, but not life-threatening.
After just a couple days, Newman was up, walking around, talking, and on the road to making a full recovery.
Taking to Twitter, Roush Fenway Racing President Steve Newmark shared a photo of Newman with his daughters, and the hospital crew that nursed him back to health.

To the nurses from a nurse. God bless you for choosing to work in this crazy field so that you were there when Ryan needed you just as you are for a multitude of patients.
