Ryan Newman on surviving serious crash at Daytona 500: 'The angels… held a really good grip'

Ryan Newman called it a "miracle" that he survived a serious crash at the Daytona 500 with only minor injuries.

The racecar driver was injured in February when he crashed during the final lap of "The Great American Race." His vehicle went airborne after he was sent spinning into the wall, and his car was then struck by Corey LaJoie in the driver's side door. Newman subsequently spent two days in the hospital, although he reportedly didn't suffer any serious injuries.

Newman told Today that it's "still humbling to watch it and know that I'm sitting here without a headache, which is amazing."

"Just a miracle on so many levels, and thankful for so many people for prayers, for all the things that went into me being safer in that situation," he said of the situation.
