Yes. The hit was right above the driver's head.

Nope. I read somewhere that he wasn't responsive on first arrival by the safety crew, but was "helped" from the car...transferred to hospital. I've seen a lot of other things across the Twittersferes, with one being an update is coming soon...

Edit: hearing he's "stable", with serious injuries, but not life threatening.

Yeah, nothing worse than "media" reporting what they've heard without sources. And they try to hide behind the multiple reports have said. That's speculating and thankfully a few have been called out and hopefully get censured by their managers for it

Yeah, the constant pictures and replay and family feels invasive. Especially the slow-mo replays over and over in FS1. They at least have reported and covered the statements fairly clearly but they need to provide the information and leave it at that. Let the breakdown of the video wait.

Yeah that was lame. Especially since last week he went public about his pending divorce. Not a good start to 2020 for Ryan.

Went to bed not long after seeing Kevin Harvick pit to get his back end straightened. Lap 60 or 70 or something like that.

Sad to hear about Ryan. Hope he's OK, won't be watching the rest of the race on replay - hate these awful "accidents" that seem to be a staple part of plate racing.

Do wish someone would literally wipe Logano off the face of the Earth before his idiotic behaviour kills others. He's arrogant, stupid and dangerous. Roger Penske should fire him at the very least - how many of his cars has Logano wrecked this week?

Great news to wake up to. I stayed up until 3 am, waiting on word, but finally had to throw in the towel.

As for the race, I expect NASCAR to look at the rules regarding the locking of bumpers after this. Perhaps the Cup Series should use the same rules as the Xfinity series and trucks, after all.

Also, I'd like to see them ban blocking while at the same time make some changes that increase the effect of the draft. Bring back the true slingshot.

There's many ways to "fix" plate racing, but they won't do it. While we can throw lots around about driving standards, this type of racing, where the biggest trophy in stockcar racing is up for grabs, this kind of aggression will persist.

And the "action" of the race means I won't bother with the other plate tracks (and perhaps many others) this year.

Yeah, the action isn't much better at Atlanta or Texas either. Cars end up just as bunched and get a big one there. They just don't have a presenting sponsor of the "big one" other than Daytona and Talladega. It's almost time for a hp cut at the tracks instead of the claimed boost they ere given this year. More power does not help the race and more power and worse standards means worse racing.

But this is the same network that thinks the XFL is going to end college football in the next 10 years so. And Fox gets to bend Nascar's ear when it comes to rules packages to get the ratings
