A scary multi-car crash took place during a Wednesday afternoon practice session leading up to the Daytona 500. When the accident occurred, some 30 cars were running in a pack when Matt Kenseth changed lanes, sending Joey Logano (#22) and Paul Menard (#27) sideways, the latter going nose-first toward the outer fence. Menard’s car caught that of rookie Parker Kligerman (#30), who flipped over the hood of Menard and landed upside down on inner portion of track. Ryan Truex (#83), in turn, rammed into Kligerman’s car.
As the out-of-control cars careened along the outer wall, a portion of the chain-link fence atop the wall was damaged. Track action was stopped immediately to allow track staff to tend to the drivers, to the damaged cars and to make track repairs. Dave Blaney (#77) was forced to withdraw from the rest of Speedweeks as the team did not have a backup car.
