Carl Edwards was one of the pre-race favorites to win the Daytona 500 in his No. 19 Joe Gibbs Racing Toyota.
But on Lap 56, last year's winner, Joey Logano checked up coming out of Turn 4 and was hit from behind by Brian Vickers, who went on a lurid spin in the No. 14 Stewart-Haas Racing Chevrolet.
Edwards took evasive action to avoid Vickers' car, and when he did, Edwards hit the wall, incurring front-end damage on his JGR Toyota.
