The big one happened with nine laps to go when Paul Menard made contact with the rear of Matt DiBenedetto.
When DiBenedetto came around he would make contact with Menard triggering a collection of cars who would see their chance of winning the Daytona 500 go away.

On the radio, Menard would comment that he just bumped DiBendetto too hard.

The red flag would come out. At first 18 cars were listed in the crash but NASCAR later revised that number to 21.
