The NASCAR driver flipped 10 times at high speed during the NASCAR Cup Series race
Last week, Ryan Preece put the Next Gen car to the test in a violent crash at Daytona International Speedway. The NASCAR Cup Series driver barrel rolled at a high rate of speed, flipping at least 10 times.
The incident happened as he was turned backwards down the backstretch. As the car went backwards at 190 mph, the air lifted the car clear off the ground.
He did a slow flip through the air before crashing back to the ground on his roof. Once hitting the grass, the car gripped the earth and was sent into many violent loops.
Preece was able to climb from the car with minor help from the AMR safety team. However, once he exited the car, the safety crew elected to place him on a stretcher before getting into the ambulance.
