In the first career Nationwide Series race for Danica Patrick, she was caught up in the first "Big One" of the Drive4COPD 300 in Datona. The wreck happened in front of her, and she couldn't see anything.

In the media circus in the garage, Danica joked that "Goodyear should make smokeless tires".

Shortly after the restart, Dale Earnhardt Jr. was sliding on his roof. Carl Edwards tapped Brad Keslowski, who ended up spinning Earnhardt around and caused another "Big One".

Tony Stewart ended up winning the race.
