As we’ve reached the conclusion of the 2022 Daytona 500, the intensity, as it always does at superspeedways, has ratcheted up, culminating in a multi-car accident with 10 laps to go.
The accident started when Larson, the reigning champion, got into the back of Kevin Harvick, sending the No. 4 Busch Beer Ford Mustang around. From there the accident developed, collecting numerous others.
