Ryan Preece posts a message on social media after the violent crash at Daytona

DAYTONA BEACH, FL — “I’m back,” Ryan Preece stated on social media after a brutal crash during a NASCAR Cup Series race Saturday night at Daytona International Speedway.

Bryce was taken to a local hospital after the accident.

Although he did not provide an update on his status in his post on X, the social networking site formerly known as Twitter, he did write: “If you want to be a race car driver, you better be tough. Damn. … I’m coming back.” “

Bryce’s car rolled over 10 times after being hit from behind by Eric Jones’ car on lap 156 of the 163-lap race. Brees’ car swerved left and hit teammate Chase Briscoe’s car. This contact tipped Preece’s car sideways as it slid through the turn three grass. When Bryce’s car went over a patch, air entered under the car and lifted it up, starting a fierce roll.

“It’s just violent,” NBC NASCAR analyst Jeff Burton said of Brees’ crash during the NBC broadcast. “Look at this car. It’s amazing that something that weighs over 3,500 pounds can fly through the air this way.

Chris Buescher won the regular season finale. Bryce finished thirty-first.

“Ryan is a good friend of mine,” Bucher said. “While we were at Victory Lane we got word that he’s in hospital, they’re going through a lot and he’s doing well. It’s good to hear.”

Bucher said he has not yet seen a replay of the Bryce crash but understands how jarring such inversions can be. His car flipped in a Coca-Cola 600 last year.

“It just overtakes you,” Bucher said of what the rollover accident could have looked like. “…we appreciate how safe our race cars are. I think we as an industry sometimes forget that they’re still dangerous. That can definitely lead to some of our wildest moments. It’s a dangerous sport. We know that getting into it. At some point we’re pushing it too far.” A little bit in the back of our minds. … I know (Bryce’s) crash was dissonant only from the small part[of the video he saw of the crash].”
