Daytona Finish Features Massive, Horrifying Wreck

Tonight’s rain-delayed Coke Zero 400 at Daytona ended in a win for Dale Earnhardt Jr. but a terrifying finish for Austin Dillon, whose car ended upside down after tearing into the catch fence as the “big one” resulted in injuries to at least three spectators but, amazingly, no drivers.

Yeley that caused him to lose control that he gave Yeley a similar tap once he was back out on track. Needless to say, Poole didn’t get to keep racing. » 5/18/15 1:55pm 5/18/15 1:55pm
