Daytona 500 Crash Video: Jamie McMurray's Spin-Out Leads To Late 'Big' One

It's hard to call the wreck that collected seven drivers on Lap 187 of the 2012 Daytona 500 a true "Big One." Sure, Jamie McMurray's car does a few rotations, and there's a lot of smoke and debris going on, but none of the major players up front was involved, and the most important driver involved may have been Brad Keselowski, tweeting machine.

But, well, it's still a crash, and it still looks like a major incident on camera. McMurray losing control and falling to the apron before heading back up to the wall was a recipe for disaster, and the yellow flag that came out after the crash sets up a finish of fewer than 10 consecutive green flag laps, so this was more unavoidable than unforgettable, and might just create some drama heading to the checkered flag.

Tonight, it would feel weird if it didn't. After all, Keselowski has already tweeted about this crash — and that seems perfectly normal.

If you missed the big crash, here's video, a couple gifs of the impact and gifs of the aftermath.
