DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. — Chase Elliott, Kevin Harvick, Denny Hamlin and Ryan Newman have been involved in the first wreck of Speedweeks.
The four Cup Series drivers crashed Saturday during the opening practice for the exhibition Clash race at Daytona International Speedway. The race is slated to start Sunday afternoon.
Elliott got caught in the middle of a tight pack and seemed to slide in front of Newman on the outside. Newman tapped Elliott, who then spun in front of traffic. Harvick slammed into the back of Hamlin, who had started to slow.
