DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. — The Daytona demolition derby continues.

A second "Big One" struck the Coke Zero 400 with 63 laps to go in Sunday's race at Daytona International Speedway, seemingly taking out more than half the remaining cars.

The wreck was ​triggered when Greg Biffle got into a slowing Kasey Kahne near the front of the pack heading into Turn 3 and many others piled in.

"Just a chain reaction, you know?" Biffle said. "You can't react that fast, unfortunately."

"I just kept getting hit, hit, hit to one side of my bumper," Kahne said. "Finally I spun around."

Kyle Busch flipped over but was uninjured.

It just felt like a slow carnival ride," Busch said. "When you go over like that, you get tight in your restraints. You just hang on to your restraints, That's pretty much it.

"Last time I was upside down, I barrel rolled a few times and ended up back on my wheels. Those hits hurt a little bit more than just being toppled over and hanging. I'd rather do that any time."

Others involved included Paul Menard, Jamie McMurray, Joey Logano, David Ragan, Clint Bowyer, Ryan Newman, David Gilliland, Justin Allgaier, Alex Bowman, Bobby Labonte, Ryan Truex and Michael Annett.

"Couldn't really see a whole lot of what started it," Allgaier said. "You're running so fast and trying to stop right now. It was a pile on from there."

Added Busch: "It looked liked the 16 (Biffle) just bump drafted the 5 (Kahne) down the straightaway and the 5 just lost it in front of everybody. The whole field just piled in from there. I hit the grass straight on, so I just tried to hold my wheel straight and get back to pavement, but my splitter just augured in and turned me sideways and back across the racetrack."

McMurray, who started near the rear but was able to drive to the front to lead 11 laps, said he got airborne during the wreck.

"I did, and I've never had that feeling before," McMurray said. "It was crazy. All the sudden the car lifted off the ground. It was scary. Fortunately it sat back down. It didn't hit anything very hard. It just stayed in the air for a few seconds.

Shortly after the crash, rain began to fall at the track again, triggering another red flag for weather at 2 p.m. The race was stopped on lap 113 of a scheduled 160 with Richard Petty Motorsports' Aric Almirola in the lead. Only 17 cars remain on the lead lap.
