Daytona 500 Crash GIF: Kasey Kahne spins, multiple cars wreck

Kasey Kahne got sideways, and quite a few drivers got caught up in a wreck during lap 33 of the Daytona 500.

The first crash of the 2013 Daytona 500 is in the books after Kasey Kahne got sideways on lap 33 in the middle of a crowded pack of traffic. Until the 33rd lap, all had been quiet at Daytona, with Jeff Gordon leading and only a debris caution slowing down the race. But that all changed just after the caution ended as Kahne got sideways coming out of the tri-oval, sending his car into the infield and creating a bit of a pileup.

All told, Kahne got away pretty well. His car took damage as it hit the infield, but other drivers got caught up in a worse, secondary wreck.

Tony Stewart, Kevin Harvick, Juan Pablo Montoya, Jamie McMurray and Casey Mears were all caught up in the wreck, which spilled into the infield grass. With tight racing and everyone in close quarters, any slip was bound to catch quite a few drivers, and Kahne getting sideways did just that.
