Terrifying footage of the Coke Zero Sugar 400 at the infamous Daytona International Speedway. Ryan Preece lost control five laps from the end of the NASCAR race and flew into the air at 305 kilometers per hour before flipping ten times.
The 32-year-old American sent a tweet the same evening after he was taken to hospital by ambulance. “If you want to be a pilot, you have to be tough. Damn it, but I’ll be back!” His team Stewart-Haas Racing then announced that Preece would spend the night in hospital for further evaluation. In the meantime he is back home.
