DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) - Rookie Parker Kligerman was involved in a multi-car wreck Wednesday, sliding on his roof halfway down the front-stretch in the first full practice for the Daytona 500.

Matt Kenseth and Joey Logano started the melee when they got together coming out of turn 4 during a drafting session at Daytona International Speedway. Trevor Bayne then hit Logano, who slammed into Paul Menard. Menard's car shot up the track and collected Kligerman.

Kligerman's car lifted off the ground, landed on top of Ryan Truex's hood and then turned upside-down and slid down the track before coming to a stop.

Dave Blaney also was involved. Some of the cars slammed into the outside wall, damaging part of the catch-fence that separates fans from the track.

No one was injured.
