Newman was injured in a last-lap crash in February’s Daytona 500 at Daytona International Speedway. He was hospitalized but released a few days later, and has not run any other races in the 2020 season.
NASCAR, like many other sports and companies, are suspending their ongoing seasons due to the current coronavirus pandemic sweeping the globe.
