2012 Daytona 500 Update: Ryan Newman Spins, Gets Hit On Pit Road

A Lap 12 spin off Turn 2 by 2008 Daytona 500 winner Ryan Newman brought out the second caution of the night in the Daytona 500.

Newman apparently had a flat tire and spun out on his own, but was able to drive his car back to pit road and appeared to have escaped with minimal damage. But that wasn't the end of the story for him.

Once on pit road, Newman lost a left-front tire and was hit from behind by A.J. Allmendinger. The damage smashed Newman's rear end and messed up Allmendinger's radiator, requiring the No. 22 Penske Racing car to go to the garage.

The race is back to green after the lead-lap cars made their first pit stops of the night.

So far, eight cars have already been involved in accidents of some kind – and we're only on lap 25. Denny Hamlin leads at this point.

David Ragan and Jimmie Johnson have officially been declared "out" of the race.
