NASCAR Driver Flips 10 Times In Violent Crash and Miraculously Walks Away

Ryan Preece, a 32-year-old NASCAR driver, experienced a violent crash in Saturday night’s Coke Zero Sugar 400 in Daytona Beach, Florida which resulted in his car flipping over 10 times.

Miraculously, he was able to walk away from the incident and was placed on a stretcher and attended to at the infield care center. He was subsequently transported to the hospital where he stayed overnight before being released on Sunday.

According to media reports, Ryan Preece was alert and shaken up after the crash.

CBS Reported:

Preece went from challenging for the win to going for one of the wildest rides in recent memory at Daytona.

NASCAR Cup Series driver Ryan Preece was released from Halifax Health Medical Center in Daytona Beach, Fla. on Sunday morning after being involved in a violent accident with six laps to go in Saturday night’s Coke Zero Sugar 400. After an errant bump draft spun him across the nose of Chase Briscoe’s car and into the Daytona International Speedway infield, Preece’s car became airborne then flipped nearly a dozen times.

Preece’s car went skyward after spinning through the infield road course section of Daytona’s backstretch, then flipped 10 times in total with his car launching into the air through high velocity rolls through the grass.

After being attended to by the AMR Safety Team, Preece was able to climb out of his car before lying down on a stretcher, and he was then transported to the track’s infield care center. Following the conclusion of the race, Preece was transported to a local hospital for further evaluation.

Per Preece’s personal public relations account, Preece was awake and alert but “obviously shaken” after his crash and was undergoing standard tests. Preece was held at the hospital overnight before Stewart-Haas Racing announced that he had been released Sunday morning and was headed home to North Carolina.

  1. It is amazing how the NASCAR roll cages work so well in keeping a person from getting huth in an accident like this. I would love to have seen an incar camera view of what it was like for the diver. Looking at the dirt flying out of the windows as it was rolling and scooping up more on each roll I get he had no idea what was going on. I bet it felt like the wild tea cup ride at Disney.

  2. This would serve well as an example in Physics class. Inertia, gravity , air dynamics , temperature grass verses asphalt on aerodynamics , etc.
    Mom, why is there a Chapel near the racetrack? If he didn’t have a belief system in place before , he will after seeing his “wreck”.
