Danica Patrick: 3 races, 3 wrecks at Daytona
(CBS/AP) DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. – Three races, three wrecks. Even if it wasn’t really her fault, Danica Patrick went 0-for-Daytona.
Patrick got caught in a crash on just the second lap of her Daytona 500 debut Monday, a continuation of a week’s worth of troubles at Daytona International Speedway. After her crew made extensive repairs to her car, she got back in the race and finished 38th.
After noting that she was disappointed for any new fans who might have tuned in to watch her race, Patrick acknowledged that she also was disappointed for herself.
“I would have loved to have run up there. I would have loved to have got the experience when you actually were racing for positions as opposed to just feeling it out,” Patrick said. “But I truly believe everything happens for a reason.”
