Danica Patrick saw a top 20 run fall apart Sunday at Auto Club Speedway. After starting 31st the Stewart-Haas Racing driver was hoping for a good finish and slowly fought her way forward during the first half of the race. However, on lap 120 she saw her day come to a crashing end.
Patrick was running 19th exiting turn four and was running low along the frontstretch when she moved in front of the No. 5 Chevy being driven by Kasey Kahne. The two made contact and Patrick’s Chevy was turned headlong into the wall. The car went airborne before coming to a stop low on the track. Patrick exited her car and walked back towards the track gesturing at Kahne as he passed by.
“We were on a restart and I had a run on him so I went down low,” Patrick said.
