Ryan Blaney calls it ‘unintentional’

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. — Ryan Newman and Ryan Blaney soared into the lead down the backstretch on the final lap of Monday’s Daytona 500.

The two Ford drivers jockeyed for position through the final turn, but Newman — the 2008 champion — held firm. It was at that point where Blaney said he decided to push Newman toward his second title.

Instead, as Denny Hamlin charged with one last run toward the finish line, Blaney pushing ended in a dramatic crash.

“I thought I was pretty square, but I just got him to the right,” Blaney said. “I hope he’s alright. That looked really bad, and it’s not something I wanted to do. It definitely wasn’t intentional.”

JOE GIBBS APOLOGIZES:‘We really didn’t know’ how serious Ryan Newman crash was

Ryan Newman (6) gets turned into the wall by Ryan Blaney (12) as Denny Hamlin (11) misses them along the front stretch to win the NASCAR Daytona 500.

Hamlin beat Blaney to the line by 0.014 seconds, the second-slimmest margin in Daytona 500 history, for his third 500 victory as Newman was sent spiraling into the air upside down.

Newman lost control and crashed hard into the wall near the finish line. His No. 6 Ford flipped onto its hood and slid directly into the path of Corey LaJoie. The force of the second collision launched Newman into the air, and he eventually skidded to a halt near Turn 1.
