Initial reports on Twitter do not sound good.

A stretcher is next to Newman’s car. Crews are using black screens to keep fans from seeing. And media has just been told to leave the pits. #DAYTONA500 pic.twitter.com/OFFIpTWcoz

They said on the TV towards the end of the broadcast that he had been taken to the hospital already.

Sounds like Hamlin didn't know how bad the crash was.
After watching that video a few times I change my opinion Blaney dumped him on purpose and then went below the yellow line to pass him, Lets see if they call that.

It took several minutes for his car to be rolled back onto its wheels. The 2008 Daytona 500 winner was placed in a waiting ambulance and taken directly to Halifax Health Medical Center in Daytona. The damage to Newman's Mustang was extensive; it appeared the entire roll cage designed to protect his head had caved. Newman's condition was not immediately known.

In an interview on Sirius XM NASCAR following the race, Gibbs apologized for the winning team celebration as workers were still tending to Newman. The car owner said they were not aware of the severity of the situation.
