DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) – Kyle Busch won the second qualifying race Thursday night for the Daytona 500, but several contenders wrecked their prized cars in a last-lap accident.

Busch was trying to hold off Jamie McMurray on the final lap and briefly blocked him. McMurray moved up the track for another try, but Jimmie Johnson was in the same space and Johnson bounced off the wall to trigger a multi-car accident.

Among those who wrecked strong race cars were Johnson, Matt Kenseth and Martin Truex Jr. It wasn’t clear how much damage Kurt Busch and McMurray sustained.

Robert Richardson Jr. earned the final transfer spot into Sunday’s season-opening race.

Dale Earnhardt Jr. won the first qualifying race, while Michael McDowell earned that transfer spot into the 500.
