The first major incident of Sunday’s Daytona 500 occurred on Lap 49 when six cars were involved in a wreck coming off Turn 2 at Daytona International Speedway.

Kurt Busch appeared to be hit in the left rear by Ricky Stenhouse Jr., even though Stenhouse said on his team radio that he did not touch Busch’s No. 1 car.

Bubba Wallace and Tyler Reddick were also involved, as well as Austin Dillon and Jamie McMurray, making his last NASCAR Cup appearance of his career.

All drivers took their cars to pit road for repairs.

The race returned to green conditions on Lap 54.
