Joe Gibbs issues an apology for the Denny Hamlin team celebrating winning the #Daytona500 after the Ryan Newman wreck. Says they did not see the severity of it and are praying for him. Somber

Always classy Gibbs.

He was actually trying to reign everyone in right after the race I think.  Hamlin really should have waited to see what was up.  Or someone should have been in his ear telling him to wait.

Cars have flipped a billion times before without issue, doing a burnout in the grass literally on your way around is no big deal. 

I'm sure everyone assumed it was just another crash.

As soon as Denny got out he said they take the safety for granted and is hoping Ryan is ok

The car that T-boned him on the driver side while upside down was the problem.  Lajoie(?) I think.  The spotter should have flagged that for the team.  But honestly -- does anyone think Hamlin knew he might be dead and decided to celebrate anyhow?

Yeah I know that was the worse hit, my point was more these guys are used to seeing cars flipping a bunch and just getting out and walking to the ambulance, that it's not first instinct to be subdued...

No I don’t believe so.  Despite some of the in fighting, as a group the drivers are a tight community.  If Denny had any inkling Newman was seriously injured I truly believe he would not have celebrated that way.

Hamlin and Newman has been battling it all night against each other and actually had been Side drafting and bump drafting all night as somewhat of a team. There was a funny exchange with Newman regarding Hamlin late in the race that was caught over the mics. Hamlin had no idea what had happened until he hit victory lane.

Right... that's what I was saying.  Only an idiot would believe he knew and just didn't care.

Up until now I've assumed no news was bad news, but we're pushing 2hrs.  I'd think if it was a simple as he'd passed they'd say something to that effect fairly soon.  The longer it goes the more it might be that they're still fighting to save him and just don't know where things are going to shake out.

No news is very, very, very bad news.

If there was the slightest bit of movement or sign of consciousness, it would have been mentioned.

I tend to lean this way.

Channel 2 news in Orlando saying Newman is in stable condition.

I see this reported everywhere on Twitter, but nothing that looks like it came from Ch2.  Did you actually see it?

Does seem to be a lot of chatter than an announcement is pending.

Apparently the source is one of WESH's reporters.

I hope her source is legit.

Thank goodness. The delay in any news really had me worried reminded me of what happened with Dale.
