Danica Patrick was involved in a massive crash on the final lap at today’s Daytona Gatorade Duel. It was her first Sprint Cup Series race. Patrick got caught low on the track, and her car hit the infield barrier at a high rate of speed.
Fortunately, Patrick did not sustain any serious injuries. As a result of a deal with Tommy Baldwin Racing, Partick will race in Sunday’s Daytona 500. Otherwise, she would have been disqualified from the race as a result of this crash in qualifying.
