Ryan Newman returns to track after NASCAR wreck: ‘Great to be alive’

AVONDALE, Ariz. — Ryan Newman was back at the track Friday, sipping on a Coke and casually strolling through the infield of Phoenix Raceway.

It was hard to believe he was in a terrifying wreck at the Daytona 500 less than three weeks ago.

“It’s great to be alive,” Newman said. “If you look at my car, it’s a miracle.”

The harrowing crash on the last lap at Daytona had many fearing the worst. To the shock of almost everyone, 42-year-old Newman walked out of a hospital less than 48 hours after the crash and said Friday he feels “fine” during a short interview as he walked to his hauler.

Newman said he was at the track this weekend to provide support the Roush Fenway Racing team, including Ross Chastain, who has driven his car the past few weeks. He

2021 Mercedes-AMG GLS 63 Review | What’s new, 0-60, performance

LOS ANGELES – Mercedes-AMG recently introduced two new crossovers with its bonkers 603-horsepower 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8, built by hand in Affalterbach, Germany, and installed in Tuscaloosa, Ala. We found the smaller of the two, the GLE 63 S, capable but superfluous as a performance vehicle. It would follow, then, that the bigger, bulkier 2021 Mercedes-AMG GLS 63 would be even more, as the kids say, extra. That is not the case.

Yes, the GLS 63 is built on the same platform as the GLE 63 S, but it adds a third row and an estimated 450 pounds. Yes, it shares the same 603 horsepower and 627 pound-feet of torque, and that’s before the EQ Boost integrated starter-generator tosses in an additional 21 horses and 184 lb-ft. It uses the same nine-speed automatic transmission, as well as Mercedes’ 4MATIC+

Symptoms of a Bad or Failing Coolant Temperature Switch (Sensor)

The coolant temperature sensor, also known as the coolant temperature switch, is an engine management system sensor that is used to monitor the temperature of the engine’s coolant. Most coolant temperature sensors operate using electrical resistance to measure the temperature of the coolant. This signal is then sent to the computer so that changes can be made to the engine’s timing and fuel calculations for optimal performance, as engines require more fuel when they are cold, and less fuel when they are fully warmed up. The computer will also scale back engine performance settings if it detects that the engine temperature is too high, in order to protect the engine from possible damage due to overheating.

Because temperature plays such a vital role in engine performance calculations, any problem with the coolant temperature sensor can quickly translate into
