Ryan Newman's crash at the Daytona 500 on Monday was so awful that NASCAR fans were fearing the worst. Two days later, Newman walked out of a Florida hospital, holding the hands of his two young daughters, reports Fox News. Wife Krissie Newman tweeted video, calling it the "best sight ever." The specifics of the 42-year-old's injuries have not been disclosed, and it's not clear when (or if) he will drive again. But it definitely will not be this weekend, per a tweet from his Roush Fenway Racing team. Prior to Newman's release from the hospital, the team tweeted that he had been "joking around with staff, friends and family" at the Halifax Medical Center. (More Ryan Newman stories.)
