Boise native Brian Scott's car was beaten, but the No. 33 Chevrolet finished four laps down in 25th in Scott's Daytona 500 debut and second Sprint Cup race Sunday night.

Scott stayed in the race after a 12-car crash on lap 145, which started when he appeared to tap Kevin Harvick's No. 4 car. That forced Harvick up the track and Scott into Aric Almirola, and set off a chain reaction that took out Danica Patrick, two-time 500 winner Michael Waltrip and others. Scott's car suffered damage on the right rear corner, but was back on the track after a pit stop.

Scott also was collected in a multi-car crash caused by polesitter Austin Dillon on lap 194 but was still running at the end.
