1989  ยป Daytona 500


















On the 24th lap, Davey Allison (#28) was spun by Geoff Bodine coming out of the second turn. Allison careened through the backstretch grass until he crashed rear-first into with infield dirt embankment, sending his Ford into a tumble before coming to rest on its wheels. Davey was able to restart the car and continue on in the race despite the damage.

Meanwhile, the field raced its way towards to the crash scene as safety vehicles arrived. Ronnie Sanders (#19) neglected to slow down in time, losing control down the backstretch. Sanders narrowly avoided rear-ending other vehicles as he ricocheted off the outside wall, then bounced off the side of Bobby Hillin Jr. (#8).
