Ryan Preece released from hospital after flip at Daytona

Ryan Preece released from hospital after flip at Daytona

We want to bring you back to one of the events that happened in the course of that race involving the 41 of Ryan Priest.
Got a push from the 43 of Eric Jones, came down on the 14 of Chase Briscoe.
The 41 goes airborne, flips 10 times, guys.
What were you thinking when you saw this happening?
I was thinking, when’s it going to stop?
I mean, Caitlin, it just looked like a little matchbox car out there being tossed in the backyard, Todd.
That is a violent wreck when a driver gets turned and starts rolling at 200 miles an hour.
Yeah, this is definitely one of the most violent wrecks I’ve seen in a long time.
But, you know, if there’s any good in this wreck, it’s two things.
First of all, he was in the grass, so it was a little softer landing, but he didn’t hit anything solid.
There was no sudden stops.
As a driver, that’s what you worry about.
Those sudden stops really hurt and can hurt you.
Fortunately, Ryan was okay.
Yeah, Ryan Priest, we see him there being taken to the Halifax Medical Center where he was treated and released this morning.
He did post a tweet as well. Take a look at this.
He said, if you want to be a race car driver, you better be tough.
We had a fast-forward performance Mustang, and I am coming back.
So it is a great thing to see that Ryan has been released and that he seems okay.
But what a scary incident for a driver to deal with and manage.
Yeah, and Ryan was racing up front for most of the night, and he was in a must-win situation.
So you know he was being very, very aggressive, and all those drivers at the end of the races are just super aggressive at these style racetracks.
And any time you get turned sideways and you start rolling and spinning through the grass back there, Todd, it’s an uncomfortable position.
But Ryan is a tough driver.
He’s an old-school style driver, and I know he’ll bounce back whenever he sees that.
He’ll literally bounce back.
That’s right.
Yeah, you know, the one thing as a driver, you’re trying to eliminate your mistakes, right?
You don’t want anything to take yourself out of the race.
Well, that wasn’t his mistake, you know?
And that’s the shame of it, taken out of a race because of somebody else’s mistake.
Again, so grateful to know that Ryan Preece is okay and that he has been released from the hospital.
