Crazy moment NASCAR driver flips car TEN TIMES in 190mph horror crash as 'shaken' racer is rushed to hospital | The Sun
HERE is the crazy moment a NASCAR driver's car flipped TEN times in a horror crash.
Ford's Ryan Preece was competing in the Coke Zero Sugar 400 at Daytona International Speedway, when the accident happened.
With just five laps to go, Preece, 32, lost control of his No41 car and drove into Chase Briscoe.
After his vehicle slid into the infield, it flipped repeatedly until it finally landed on its wheels.
Astonishingly, Preece was able to climb out his car to escape the wreckage, before medics rushed to his attention.
He was placed on a stretcher and rushed to hospital to be evaluated.

Early Sunday, Stewart-Haas Racing released an update on Preece’s condition.
“NASCAR Cup Series driver Ryan Preece will remain overnight at Halifax Health Medical Center for continued observation,” a statement said.
