2012 Daytona 500 Update: Danica Patrick, Jimmie Johnson Among Cars Taken Out In Lap 2 Crash

So much for Danica Patrick's much-hyped NASCAR Sprint Cup Series debut in the Daytona 500.

Patrick didn't even make it through the second lap before she was collected in a six-car crash that was triggered when Jimmie Johnson got spun by Elliott Sadler at the end of the trioval.

It appeared Johnson may have tried to peek outside Regan Smith, who was running in front of him, and Sadler closed up too quickly.

Johnson was turned head-on into the wall, then was T-boned by David Ragan in the door. The huge hit appeared to knock the wind out of Johnson and he cringed after the collision.

The same part of the wreck also collected Patrick. She spun into the melee and somehow made contact with Johnson's No. 48 car.

Also collected? Kurt Busch, Sadler and 2011 Daytona 500 winner Trevor Bayne.
