It was like slipping on the banana peel you left by your bed last night and nailing your face on the wall the moment you get out of bed
Danica crashes! And it didn’t take long:
As the field went into Turn 1 after taking the green flag, Ryan Truex got loose and slid into the grass on the inside of the downhill right-hander. As he attempted to gather the car up, he slid back onto the track, right into the path of Patrick and the rest of the field. And that was that for Patrick’s chances. The damage to her front fender and radiator forced her to take the car to the garage. She finished dead last at 43rd.
Not just the first lap, but the first turn. The race had just started.
Here, watch it:
What the hell was that guy doing?
In other news, has anybody noticed how McKayla Maroney looks a little like Danica Patrick?
I imagine Danica was making a similar face. Or maybe worse.
