VIDEO: Daytona 500 Begins With Crash; Jimmie Johnson, Danica Patrick Involved

The Daytona 500 has seen its first crash after just two laps of racing. The wreck was a nasty one, claiming Jimmie Johnson's car for the day. Johnson took a nasty shot to the driver's side from Trevor Bayne, but he got out of his car under his own power. In any event, his day is done.

Besides Johnson and Bayne, the wreck also involved Danica Patrick, Kurt Busch and David Ragan. Here's the video of the wreck.

We knew that this race was going to involve plenty of crashes, but no one could have predicted that a wreck was going to end the day of someone like Johnson just two laps in. Those who were hoping to see Patrick do well are probably out of luck, though she did have a bit of luck at the end with the way she incredibly slid through the cars of Busch and Bayne. Only Johnson's day is done, but the other cars all sustained some serious damage.
