The Daytona 500 is four days away and we've already had our first gruesome incident involving cone, as cone was violently run over when Kasey Kahne spun off the bumper of Juan Pablo Montoya.

The incident meant a backup car for Kahne in Thursday's Gatorade Duels, and, unfortunately, a backup cone too. Kahne even apologized to cone via Twitter after the crash.

Our best wishes go out to the cone family on this tragic accident. And Godspeed to you, replacement cone. What exceptional courage to step in after such a tragedy. Though being at the pit road entrance may require less courage than this.
