Johnson, Patrick among 16 cars caught in Big One at Daytona

A 16-car crash on Lap 129 took out some on of the top contenders in Sunday's Daytona 500, including seven-time Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series champion Jimmie Johnson.

Going into Turn 3, Jamie McMurray made an aggressive move on Johnson, tapping it and moving it from the top lane down the track, where Johnson's No. 48 Hendrick Motorsports Chevrolet got hit by Trevor Bayne.

"Really? I'm mean, the whole back straightaway, two of 'em tried to crash me," Johnson said.

Johnson was knocked out of the race, as were Clint Bowyer, Danica Patrick, and Chris Buescher. Other drivers caught up in the crash included 2016 Daytona 500 winner Denny Hamlin, Kevin Harvick, and Joey Logano.

"It's a real shame because I think we could have been a real contender at the end," said Patrick.
