2012 Dayton 500: Wreck Claims Jimmie Johnson On Second Lap

The green flag had not been down very long before the first wreck happened in the 2012 Daytona 500. Actually, the crash happened on the second lap of the race, and it involved Danica Patrick and Jimmie Johnson, two of the biggest names in the event.

You can see the wreck here.

Johnson got turned turned by Elliot Sadler. David Ragan hit Johnson on the driver’s side, and that pulled Patrick into the crash.

That ended the race for Jimmie Johnson. Patrick was sent for repairs, marring her Dayton debut.

A total of six cars were involved in the wreck. The drivers involved included: Kurt Busch, Jimmie Johnson, Danica Patrick, David Ragan, Trevor Bayne, Elliott Sadler.

Only Johnson’s race is over, but the others all sustained some pretty serious damage.
