And They Are Off...And Crashing

 The Daytona 500 is off and running and on lap 2 they already had a big crash involving among others, Jimmie Johnson, Kurt Busch, David Ragan and shockingly, Danica Patrick (I think it is now 12 crashes in 27 NASCAR events?) and a few others.
Apparently, Elliot Sadler touched Jimmie Johnson, who went hed first in the wall, causing the crash.
And now on lap 12, Ryan Newman crashed.
It's going to be an exciting race!
Update: A.J. Allmendinger just crashed into Ryan Newman on pit row after Newman lost a wheel, sending A.J. to the garage.
Update 2: Jeff Gordon blew an engine at about lap 83 and Terry LaBonte was spun by Marcos Ambrose on lap 88.
Not a good week for Hendrick's team as 1/2 of the team is going to place 35th or worse tonight.  As far as Kurt Busch who will finish 43rd:  Karma?
Update: Martin Truex Jr. was leading at half way and won $200,000 for his team.  Michael Waltrip is smiling now, even though he crashed in qualifying and did not make the race.
Just a thought: This is the Great American Race and yet they have a Toyota as the pace car.  Hmmm.
