Ryan Newman is scheduled to appear Wednesday morning on NBC’s “Today” show for an exclusive interview about his crash on the last lap of the Daytona 500 and his recovery.
“Today” airs at 7 a.m. locally.
Newman was hospitalized for about 42 hours after his crash that sent his car tumbling down the frontstretch at Daytona International Speedway before sliding to a stop upside down. He was extracted from the car 15 minutes, 40 seconds after the car came to rest.
Newman said in a statement last month that the the only injury he suffered was a head injury. Newman has not disclosed any other details about that injury but told reporters last weekend at Phoenix Raceway that he had no timetable for his return to racing.
