Daytona 500 Finish Video
February 28, 2012 by staff
Daytona 500 Finish Video, Jimmie Johnson was long gone when all the Daytona disorder ensued. He missed the explosion, the fire, the lengthy cleanup, the finish and the fog.
He surely would have endured it all rather than the night he had at the Daytona 500.
The five-time NASCAR champion followed up his worst season with his worst finish in The Great American Race. Johnson wrecked on the second lap Monday night and finished 42nd – his worst showing in 53 starts spanning four series at the famed track.
This one came on the heels of a career-low, sixth-place finish in the Sprint Cup standings.
“I’m just really, really bummed to start the season this way,” Johnson said. “For all the hard work that has gone into getting … ready for tonight; we didn’t get to complete two-and-a-half miles of green-flag racing. So, I’m pretty bummed.”
He had plenty of company.
Hendrick Motorsports teammates Jeff Gordon and Kasey Kahne also ended up in the garage. Gordon blew an engine on lap 82 and finished 40th. Kahne was involved in a seven-car accident on lap 190 and ended up 29th. Dale Earnhardt Jr. was Hendrick’s lone bright spot, finishing second to Matt Kenseth.
