Danica Patrick did not feel very welcomed in her first NASCAR Sprint Cup race at Kansas Speedway Sunday. After being forced to start in the rear of the field due to an engine change, Patrick was slowly working her way forward.
On lap 155 however Patrick’s day came to a premature end. While exiting turn two, Patrick made contact with the No. 83 of Landon Cassill. Patrick appeared to be trying to spin Cassill; instead her Chevy spun down towards the inside of the track then shot back across and into the wall. Her day was done while Cassill continued on.
“You know better than to do that,” her crew chief Greg Zippadelli said on the team radio. MORE>>>
