Ryan Newman is on his way home two days after a fiery crash during the final lap at the Daytona 500.
Roush Fenway Racing announced Wednesday the 42-year-old was released from Halifax Medical Center:
Earlier in the day, Roush Fenway Racing said in a statement that Newman was showing "great improvement" and was walking around the hospital:
Newman was in the lead on the final lap when Ryan Blaney's car made contact with his, causing the No. 6 car to crash into the wall before flipping over and getting slammed into by Corey LaJoie as he was in midair.
As track workers made their way to pull Newman out, the car was on fire and leaking fuel. Roush Fenway Racing announced that he was being treated at Halifax Medical Center in serious condition with non-life-threatening injuries.
Newman was able to start communicating with family and doctors on Tuesday, per Roush Fenway.
