Daytona 500 results: Denny Hamlin wins; Ryan Newman rushed to hospital after last-lap crash

Denny Hamlin won the Daytona 500 for the second year in a row Monday, but everybody's thoughts after the race immediately turned to the condition of Ryan Newman, who was involved in a scary crash as the field crossed the finish line to end the 2020 NASCAR Cup Series season-opener.

As the field approached the finish, Hamlin was pushing Ryan Blaney, who made contact with Newman's rear bumper. Newman spun into the outside wall and flipped upside down before he was hit by another car coming at full speed. Newman was removed from his car and taken to nearby Halifax Health Medical Center after the race.
