GIF: Danica Patrick, others involved in 12-car Daytona 500 Wreck



Twitter is buzzing about the Daytona 500 wreck that is yet another setback for a Daytona 500 that was delayed for several hours due to severe weather conditions. The Daytona 500 wreck included Danica Patrick, who was spun into running head-on into an unprotected retaining wall at nearly 200 mph.

It was not Danica’s fault, she was an innocent bystander in the 12-car pile up on the 146th lap.

Danica Patrick was just in the wrong place at the wrong time, plowed into the barrier and totally wrecked her car. Her night is over. Other drivers involved in the Daytona 500 wreck besides Patrick included Aric Almirola, Brian Scott, Park Kligerman, Paul Menard, Michael Waltrip, Reed Sorenson, pole-sitter Austin Dillon, Kasey Kahne, Marcos Ambrose, Justin Allgaier and Josh Wise.

It’s a shame that Danica got caught up in a crash that wasn’t her own doing. Patrick was running okay, good by her standards, before the Daytona 500 wreck.

  1. The king made sure Danica was not going to win that race. Wrecked by the # 43 car

  2. Bill Maltby says:

    Figures all the crap Petty was saying about her the last 2 weeks, that it was his car that took her out. She was doing pretty good too. Just riding in the top 10 to 15 all day, led a couple laps. Then the Petty button was ready to burst. Didn’t have 43 get her on purpose, but ironic it was Petty the PUSSY’s car that got her.

  3. She doesn’t belong on ANY track. Political correctness run amok.

  4. Yeah – she was gonna win. And I’m gonna be the president of the U.S.
