Kyle Larson talks about multi-car accident on lap 162 on the Daytona 500

Austin Dillon: "I can’t wait to get to Phoenix and try and do better."

YOU JUST LOOKED AT THE REPLAY AND SHOOK YOUR HEAD. IS WHAT YOU SAW ON THE MONITOR WHAT YOU SAW HAPPEN FROM THE CAR? “Yeah, it was just a long day. I got in the wall on lap one, blew the right rear and spun so we had a rough start from the go of it.

But we just kind of rode around the whole race there and finally got in the Lucky Dog position so we were racing pretty hard there.

I just pulled the middle line and I don’t know if Austin (Dillon) got a little loose, shuffled up the track and got into me and turned us sideways. So it’s been a really long day. I can’t wait to get to Phoenix and try and do better.

Been at Daytona a lot and it sucks to end it like this, but we will go to Phoenix and try to rebound and get the momentum built up.”
