    “I hope he’s alright,” a visibly shaken up Blaney said. “I was trying to push him to the win. I don’t like saying that things just happen because I feel really bad about it. It was a close one. I just hope Ryan is alright.”

    From some reports were that they flipped the car back upright to get him out. That doesn't sound at all good.
    Load and go isn't favorable either.

    The media blackout makes you wonder. Still nothing being said. I fear the worst.

    My wife texted a family member after the wreck asking about what’s up. It took awhile but he replied that they told Fox nothing (Mike and Jeff in the booth) and that he was watching an isolated camera feed that was focused on taking Ryan out of the car. He said he didn’t see any CPR given, and that he didn’t look good. Now, this doesn’t mean that he’s telling us everything he knows, and the whole truth, and he’s not one to speculate. He also said this was only his opinion as to his condition, as to what he saw.

    A spokes person supposedly from DIS Updates is tweeting that Newman is in "stable" condition.
    Unverified and and if incorrect speculation, this individual would be better off saying nothing.

    When the crash crew brought out the black screen, that wasn't a good sign. Prayers said for him.

    Local Fox News station here in Indianapolis reporting Newmans injuries are not life threatening.
    That is very good news, but lets continue to pray for the driver of #6.
