NASCAR driver Ryan Preece, whose car rolled about a dozen times during a terrifying crash at Daytona International Speedway, was on his way home 12 hours later after being discharged from a hospital.

The 32-year-old climbed out of his mangled No.41 Ford with help before emergency workers put him on a gurney and into an ambulance. He initially went to the track’s infield care centre before being transported to Halifax Health for overnight observation.
