Here, Newman was ahead of Ryan Blaney, when the latter dismissed him. Newman hit the wall hard and ricocheted off the track before another car ran over him.

Doctor Mike immediately noticed that Newman’s #6 car was fishtailed and was stunned by the rest of the scene. He even observed that the side impact was really hard, which puts a lot of strain on the neck.

Doctor Mike also listened to Newman’s interview after he recovered from the accident. Newman revealed he was unconscious and had a bruised brain. In the eyes of the doctor, it was more of a concussion or a repercussion injury. For the uninitiated, a kickback is a head injury located relative to the point of impact on the head. This occurs on the opposite side of the brain from where the impact occurs.

The good news is that Newman has since made a full recovery and is back to racing. Since then, he’s been riding the SRX series full-time and having fun. It is currently unknown if he will be back in the Cup Series, but at the moment things look unlikely. One thing is for sure, he always tries to stay active on the racing front.
