Danica Patrick and Mike Wallace trigger fiery crash at Daytona

An incredible final-lap crash has taken the spotlight off Joey Logano in his win at the NASCAR Nationwide Subway Jalapeno 250 at Daytona.

Despite starting dead last, Joey Logano claimed the win ahead of the melee, as more than a dozen cars spun, caught fire and disintegrated on the final stretch to the line.

IndyCar fast-femme Danica Patrick looked on track for a win after leading 13 laps in the hectic race, but it all came undone for Patrick on the final lap when she was blocked by Mike Wallace, triggering the monster crash before sliding across the line in 10th.

"I was going for broke and I kept my foot in it too!" Danica Patrick said.

"It's probably not the right thing to do when there's a crash but I was going for it."

As a NASCAR Sprint Cup driver, Logano is not eligible for points in the race.

As the first of the top-five Nationwide drivers to finish in third, Reed Sorenson extends his points lead and picks up a $100,000 bonus.(S)
