DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. — The second visit of the 2013 season to Daytona International Speedway for NASCAR Sprint Cup series rookie driver Danica Patrick didn’t have as quite a happy ending as the first. Saturday night as the Coke Zero 400 took the checkered flag, Patrick was involved in a multicar crash that erupted just before the finish line.
In her first Sprint Cup series race, in the season opening Daytona 500 in February, Patrick made history on several fronts; she became the first woman to score a pole, the first to lead laps under green and the highest finishing woman in a Daytona 500 with an eight place run.
There we no such historic moments Saturday night. MORE>>>
