Daytona 500: 14-Car Crash, Three Hendrick Motorsports Cars Involved – Hendrick Motorsports had a rough start to the Daytona 500.Three of the team’s four cars, including five-time defending Sprint Cup Series champion Jimmie Johnson, were involved in a 14-car wreck early in the 500-mile race Sunday.

Gordon’s No. 24 Chevrolet was crumpled front and back, forcing the team to the garage area for major repairs. He returned to the race 30 laps down, essentially running for points while extending his winless streak to 66 races.

The crash ended an otherwise solid Speedweeks for Hendrick Motorsports. It was a promising start after team owner Rick Hendrick made significant offseason changes to his organization.

Even though Johnson won his fifth consecutive championship, Hendrick felt his team fell way behind in 2010. Gordon, Martin and Earnhardt Jr. were winless.
