Huge Crash at Daytona 500 Takes Out Over 20 cars

Posted February 19, 2019

Busch finished second in "The Great American Race", extending his winless streak to 14 in NASCAR's season opener, and sounded less than thrilled with the way Hamlin handled the final laps at Daytona International Speedway. It also nailed three of the top four finishers at MI, and two of the top four at last year's Daytona 500.

The so-called "Super Bowl of NASCAR" saw a total of five wrecks in the final 20 laps, including one involving 21 cars, which knocked 10 cars out of the race.

Michael McDowell was fifth in a Ford, but he aggravated Logano by not working with him in the two-lap overtime sprint to the finish. Gibbs' son, J.D., died last month at the age of 49 after a long battle with a degenerative neurological disease.

"Did I get one of these the last time I won the 500?"

"We just were fortunate to really be up front at the right time to avoid those", Hamlin said.

Hamlin and Busch were running first and second when the No. 11 and No. 18 teams agreed to work together.

"We really didn't have to do much to the vehicle honestly". I wrecked a lot of cars. After climbing out of his vehicle post-victory, Denny said, "This one's for J.D. We're desperately going to miss him the rest of our lives".

"I don't mean to discredit or shortchange this win, but I'm always thinking about the next one", Gabehart stated, with a small smile on his face as he made the declaration. This is down over 66,000 seats after their $400 renovation project at the track, which broke ground in early July 2013 and was completed in time for the 2016 edition of the Daytona 500.

"I'm emotionally shot", Joe Gibbs choked out seconds after the race ended.

Although admittedly embarrassed, Gibbs said he downed two triple burgers as his team "had a ball" celebrating winning the first race of the Cup Series season. "You just don't know".
