The red flag is out at lap 40 in the ARCA Menards Series season-opening Lucas Oil 200 at Daytona International Speedway due to the big one.
The crash was triggered when the No. 69 of Scott Melton came into the tri-oval well off the pace. Melton held the low line, but as the field tried maneuvering around him, the No. 61 of JJ Pack and the No. 22 of Connor Hall made contact. All hell proceeded to break loose.

About half of the field was swept up, including Natalie Decker in the No. 52 car who took a hard shot.
