The 2012 Bud Shootout is quickly turning into a Saturday night demolition derby.
Marcos Ambrose hit Joey Logano in the left rear, triggering a nasty six-car wreck during NASCAR's preseason exhibition race with 20 laps to go at Daytona International Speedway.
The crash destroyed the cars of Dale Earnhardt Jr., Kevin Harvick and Martin Truex Jr. – all three of them contenders to win – as well as Matt Kenseth, Ambrose and Logano.
"I didn't see anything," Earnhardt Jr. said. "We all just kind of went up in the fence."
"When you get hit there, it just starts spinning you out before you know it," Logano said. "It's unfortunate. I felt like I had a car that was capable of winning, for sure."
Kevin Harvick criticized some of the more inexperienced drivers for not understanding that drivers should not push one another in the left rear corner.
There are 14 laps remaining in the race.
