The 42-year old has had a long career in NASCAR, spanning over 20 years, but Monday night’s crash was the worst he’s endured.

Roush Fenway Racing president Steve Newmark also released a statement on Twitter on behalf of Roush Fenway Racing and Newman’s family expressing their gratitude for the support and compassion from everyone.
