Back in November, Danica Patrick said she would end her NASCAR career with one final race. That race was the Daytona 500.
Unfortunately for her, that race ended earlier than she would’ve like. On lap 102 of 200, a crash involving involved Chase Elliott, Kevin Harvick, Kasey Kahne, Brad Keselowski and others sent Danica home early.
“My family and friends have all been here, so many people have reached out, [and] it’s been a nice week, so I’m not going to dwell on the result here,” Patrick said. “That’s always a chance when you come to a superspeedway that’s the result.”
She finished the day in 35th place.
