DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - This was one of those weekends that, try as they may, just wasn't going to turn out for NASCAR officials.

Saturday's race in Daytona was washed out so everyone came back Sunday for another whirl.

The second try wasn't much better. We pick it up on lap 20 and we have a major mishap. One of three red flags on the day, involving 16 drivers, including points leader Jeff Gordon, Tony Stewart and Danica Patrick.

Knocked from the race was Jimmie Johnson.

The rest of the field got back on the track and then on lap 98, more chaos. Contact between Kasey Kahne and Greg Biffle started another wreck. There were 26 cars involved in this one, more than half the field. Kyle Busch ended up on his roof.

Rain moved in and stopped the race after 112 laps. Aric Almirola was leading at the time. He gets his first career win and the first by the famous Richard Petty No. 43 since 1999.
