Horrific crash at end of Nationwide opener at Daytona 500

The Nationwide opener at Daytona ended with a horrible crash.  Four drivers were involved, Regan Smith, Brad Keselowski, Bowman and Kyle Larsen.  Larsen’s car was shredded and part of his car went through the safety fence, including the engine.    Fifteen people were injured.  Four received minor injuries and eleven were transported to the hospital with more serious injuries, one critical and undergoing surgery.  Tony Stewart won the race and Sam Hornish, Jr. (Indy race car driver who moved over to NASCAR) finished second.  Pole setter Danica Patrick did not finish, reason listed as engine trouble.  Awful way for this race to end!
