President Trump is 'praying' for Ryan Newman also known as 'Rocket Man', who is in a serious condition in hospital following a fiery crash during the final lap of the Daytona 500 on Monday night. 

Newman, who was leading the famous race in his No. 6 Ford Mustang, was zooming around the speedway at 195 miles per hour when the smash happened. 

'Praying for Ryan Newman, a great and brave NASCAR driver,' the Commander-in-chief tweeted out, just two days after his own highly-publicized visit to the raceway.  

The incident occurred when Newman's car was nudged up against a wall and flipped over just meters from the finish line. 

As Newman's Mustang fell back onto the raceway, it was struck by a trailing car which prompted it to flip into the air again. (Daily Mail)
