Robert Richardson, Jr., driver of the No. 37 Mahindra Tractors Ford Fusion, was involved in a multi-car accident late in the second practice session at Daytona International Speedway and will have to go to a back-up car for Saturday's race.

"I was out there behind Tony Stewart going down the back straightaway and my spotter said, 'Look out, smoke ahead,' and I just tried to follow Tony through there. Tony checked up pretty hard and I got on the outside of him and we were just kind of riding through there and then I guess Denny Hamlin got in the outside wall and came across and got me, and then I ended up getting Tony and it was all over from there. It was a pretty wild wreck, but we'll get our back-up car out and see what we can do tomorrow."
