TALLADEGA, Ala. (AP) - NASCAR red-flagged Sunday's race at
Talladega following a spectacular crash involving Ryan Newman with
five laps remaining.
Newman was in the middle of a pack hurtling down the backstretch
at the massive 2.66-mile tri-oval when he bumped into teammate Tony
Newman's No. 39 Stewart-Haas Chevrolet was then nudged by Marcos
Ambrose, and Newman veered inside before flipping into the air and
landing on the hood of Kevin Harvick's car. Newman rolled over
before coming to a rest upside down on the grass.
He was alert following the accident. Emergency crews had to cut
the roof off to extricate him.
The wreck came a few hours after NASCAR officials warned drivers
about aggressive driving at the restrictor-plate track.
