LAS VEGAS (AP) A paramedic was treating Ryan Newman inside his car 35 seconds after the ruined and flaming vehicle came to rest after a crash on the last lap of the Daytona 500.

NASCAR gave a brief timeline Saturday of the response to Monday night's airborne accident that was so startling many drivers feared him dead. Newman hit the wall and his car went airborne, was hit by another car to send it airborne a second time, rolled upside down and landed on its roof in flames.

"You've heard us say this many times, that safety is our primary responsibility," said Steve O'Donnell, NASCAR's executive vice president and chief racing development officer.
