Danica crashes in her first race in Nascar

Filed under: Entertainment,Florida News,Just For Fun |

Danica Patrick has had a smashing first race in NASCAR – literally.

Patrick’s debut was spoiled when she became part of a 12 car wreck on lap 68 of the Nationwide Series race at Daytona this afternoon, putting a premature end to her much-hyped entrance into the stock-car world. Among other drivers in the crash were Colin Braun, Jason Leffler, Ricky Stenhouse Jr., Stanton Barrett, Josh Wise and Johnny Sauter.

“I kept it straight, hoping they’d get out of the way, and they didn’t,” Patrick radioed to her team immediately after the wreck, which started when Josh Wise and Colin Braun got together in front of her.

In reality, there was little Danica could have done to avoid the crash.  Prior to that, it hadn’t been such a good day for her anyway as she fell as far back as 35th place and nearly lost the draft as the final car on the lead lap. Patrick was lapped during green-flag pit stops, but got the free pass when a caution finally came out.

After getting her lap back, she drove up to around 25th place and said she was just starting to get the hang of it when she was caught in the wreck.

She finished 35th.
