After DANICA PATRICK eats dust after another wreck, finishing second to NASCAR BF Ricky Stenhouse, Jr. in the standings, she has many wondering if she'll quit?!
If Danica's goal in the second half of the NASCAR has been simply to finish races, stay out of trouble and make progress, she’s kind of not succeeding all too well, The Sporting News reported.
Danica got caught up in a fender bending, grueling multicar crack up in Phoenix on Lap 146.
Patrick was tailing the lead racers, near the rear of the field, when she was swept into a white-knuckler pile-up with Cole Whitt, David Reutimann and Jason Allgaier.
“It was a tough day all around,” Danica admitted. “We started out pretty loose and got down a lap early. Then obviously we got caught up in the accident.
“Someone spun in front of me, and there was so much smoke I started to check up, and all of a sudden my car got hit from behind. It tore the back of the car up pretty good.
“It’s disappointing, but the GoDaddy guys did a good job of fixing it as best they could so we could finish.”
Danica was hoping to put on a real show for her fellow Phoenix-ians, where she also lives, and to her corporate sponsors, GoDaddy whose HQ is in the sunshine bathed metropolis.
Patrick, who is battling BF Ricky Stenhouse Jr. for rookie honors on the racing circuit, fell two spots to 27th in the standings.
But hard-battling Danica give up and call it quits? Never!
“We’ll go to Homestead and see if we can have a good run to end the season” she vowed.
