Another NASCAR race and another crash for Danica Patrick. She sure isn’t going to prove Petty wrong and win a race doing that. Patrick can’t help but to wreak the car.
She is like a crash magnet. She can’t finish a race, because she is always in the wrong place at the wrong time. Somehow these wrecks seem to find the Go Daddy Chevrolet and somehow they take Patrick out of the competition.
After a 6-hour rain delay they restarted the Daytona 500 and ran under the lights. Patrick managed to make it until lap 146 when her car was hit by Aric Almirola who sent Patrick into the outside wall.
The chain reaction accident seem to get started when Kevin Harvick drifted up the track and caused the chain reaction that took Patrick out of the competition.
Patrick must live under a black cloud. She is always being collected out on the race track and this limits her chance of ever winning in NASCAR.
Patrick said; “Oh, man. What the hell happened?” when her car came to a stop. Maybe she isn’t aware of what is going on when she is out on the track. Maybe she needs to keep an eye on her mirror a little more often.
Patrick went on to say; “It’s a bummer, but you know that is the excitement of speedway racing that anything can happen, and it was unfortunate that I was on the short end of the accident.”
