NESN recalled that the 42-year-old had suffered an unknown head injury during the last-lap wreck at Daytona International Speedway.

Despite the setback, the veteran driver has planned to return to Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series racing at some point this season.

Ryan had confirmed his injury and time away from the race track through a statement read by Roush Fenway Racing team president, Steve Newmark.

Fox News reported that the press release, which was read during a conference after the crash, mentioned the lack of any internal organ damage or broken bones.

The unfortunate crash had occurred after the race car driver got sent into a wall and then hit in the driver-side door by another car.

He had subsequently become trapped in his upside-down Ford while rescue workers tried to free him.

Until Ryan's return to the competition, Ross Chastain, who made his debut in the No. 6 Ford Mustang is expected to fill his place.

Ryan's time away from the sport has brought his streak of 659 consecutive starts since 2002, to a halt.
