Which drivers are least accident prone?

I thought this was interesting.  I looked up the career DNF totals for 27 of the drivers expected to compete full-time in 2014. I broke it down into total DNF's and also filtered it to just crash related DNF's.   The crash DNF percentage is on the far right.  This doesn't include drivers who have been start and parks for the last few seasons. The two big takeaways are Kevin Harvick and Danica Patrick.  Harvick, who was known for being aggressive in his early days after taking over Dale Earnhardt's seat, has just nine DNF's due to accidents in 466 starts!  Patrick, on the other hand, has almost equated that same amount in only 46 starts, with already seven accident related DNF's.   Sheet1
