You talk about big star power involved right here Johnson. Big time hit Kurt Busch out of the race early Danica Patrick also done and you can't say enough. About the safety of these -- because Jimmie Johnson as skinny pointed out to be a huge blow -- any kind of -- that -- in the middle of the racetrack you're very much in harm's way. When you put Carl on the racetrack it's 200 miles an hour things are gonna happen but this did not need to have an all listed unfortunately -- the -- for a lot of good race car that a Danica Patrick as we said one of those involved Trevor bank and Kurt Busch and here's what Kyle Busch said after things were cleaned up. Seriously you know we all kidding ourselves and we did that around for 36 hours. We wrecked on lap one. And Jimmie Johnson going to the garage Danica Patrick gonna have to wait to get back out Trevor being the defending race winner done as well. Sam I'm didn't you know at the last -- They hit them nor was it was pretty hard and it. We're just all trying to make our our lane working and not a lot of energy in the lane next. It's kind of -- and sending a little -- still some help from behind in. Just turnaround sent me down the inside lane and backup outside lane and then when I was sitting in a racetrack and it's just. It's gonna come along and unfortunately and get ready minority -- but of course I got grilled him pretty hard sell. I just really really well. He was playing. We didn't have closet things like racing itself pretty long. -- on planet was a hard hit that I you know I saw the 48 standing aspirants on the to get low get low slowdown it. This didn't slow down and get low enough sand night you know I'm I'm standing here ready to see -- -- replay to see what kind of bonehead would do move like that. This early in the Daytona 500 sell out our team and work so hard we had a good race car and now we were just content but not. We don't get to the finish and it's very ashamed to be topics in this era. Problems for a man who has won this event before Ryan Newman on the eighth British bidding. But not hitting any thing in this particular accident the caution. Would come out and under caution watch what happens Ryan Newman loose lug nuts loses a -- AJ all the finger hit some of the tail end busting his radiator you see them go into the garage yet another miscue by a team. It goes back to what we talked about Matt. The middle mistakes on track Jeff Gordon the three time 500 winner. Blowing an engine he's done early in the 500. And there had to be concern in the Hendrick camp when that happened and Jeff Gordon stated what it was a bottom and probably and we've both. Pop up -- bulk of rod bolts is something in the bottom end of that motor 200000 dollars goes to the -- that leads at half way. Come and -- halfway here Martin Truex junior said show me enough money. You're gonna get passed away and you've got I -- playing well it's. Another happy about it. They're not doing a good record. But I think that's about it every kind of got a lot of sports. I would -- crap like that could have played every week those guys get up on the wheel when he comes down here to cash. Had David's currently up on the well you're spinning out bringing out the caution just past the halfway point this is where things got interesting. Under caution Montoya on pit road and watches he comes back. That got the steal the back straightaway under caution spinning out in something we've never seen in the history to 500 -- That is the safety truck he was -- a jet dry this is perfect storm one possible so I have a vibration in my transmission. Or area and. No rear wheel lock up on his race car goes plowing into the jet dryer. Chaos -- Everybody was shocked everybody was staring if we currently don't Juan Pablo gets out of his car he is okay. This is worn torn right track checked the racetrack out at this point. -- soccer world war in and we get this race going to -- again Mike Hilton got all the TV later reinstated perfectly. My first concern was the safety of Juan Montoya. And a safety program for the second issues. -- this racetrack being saved us. And Juan Montoya may be mandatory trip to the infield care center and once he. Came from there he spoke to the media about what transpired. On the racetrack. So I left the -- -- that fits them and I felt really weird vibration or would attack. Everything right on the got libraries I came back and they checked the rare in this there was a game. And I got into the back straight and were gone forth here but they find that's class and on every donut on the gas there yours. I got good Hillary and really squeeze and they're gonna break Strobl of I'm while I was still on the spot at double look how the Rio was moving the hardest and right. But drama film Daytona 500 a red flag and now we go back Green closing -- midnight. Forty laps to go you knew it wouldn't get good at this stage of the race Matt -- -- leading. And then we got problems closing on the finish Jamie McMurray looks like he may have cut a left rear tire. Going to the travel gets loose he -- so both another chain reaction wreck Adam took out a bunch of good race cars that no doubt would have been contenders lately and end Brent. I'm lucky tweaks after this tricky so I believe what happened and Jamie McMurray. Was the same thing that happened the one problem so Matt maybe another transmission tiger's car lot so often he's been -- out but I actually caught. Contact with the guys on pit road during this break break here and talk to them they thought it might have been a truck arm. There's no indication exactly what was going on they looked -- they checked it but really don't get back in the shop hopefully find out what happened. Three laps to go and you see a crash here in. -- defending champion Tony Stewart Ryan Newman was involved Kasey Kahne got a piece of the action here so some more good cars eliminated. Finally the restart it's gonna decided a Green white checkered the Daytona 500 going into overtime those Roush Fenway cars up front.
