Danica Patrick fell into a multi-car crash, finished an awful 33rd in the Aaron’s 499 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race Sunday at Talladega. Ricky Bobby probably even beat here on this Talladega day; and he’s not even real.
Danica Patrick was in the middle of the pack on lap 182 when several cars crashed in front of her. Despite her best efforts, she got caught in the wreck and her day was over.
“I’m probably sure the most common answer is, ‘I have no idea,’” Danica Patrick said.
“It happens out here; it is frustrating. Ricky was trying to make it four-wide, and the No. 36 came up to block him, and it turned him. Then the No. 78 (Kurt Busch) was spinning; I went high, and somebody came up and clipped me and put me in the wall. I’m not sure which car it was.”
On lap 44, Patrick avoided a multi-car accident that unfolded in front of her. She went low on the track and missed several cars crashing in front of her before coming to a complete stop as her path was blocked with wrecked race cars. She then drove around the roadblock and continued.
Patrick’s teammate Ryan Newman, had his day cut short after being involved the same accident as Danica Patrick.
