Daytona 500: Danica Patrick's NASCAR Career Ends With Huge Wreck


"I said earlier today, I feel like the whole-thing was picture-perfect with GoDaddy on the auto and being green, but I guess it was just not meant to be", Patrick said. Just trying to race but I had such a run I couldn't keep stopping.

"I said earlier today that I feel like the whole thing was picture ideal with GoDaddy on the vehicle and being green again".

As Danica Patrick prepared to strap in for her final NASCAR race at the Daytona 500 on February 18, she found the time during Speedweeks to spend with those she cares about the most.

"My family and friends have all been here, so many people have reached out, [and] it's been a nice week, so I'm not going to dwell on the result here", Patrick told ESPN after the crash. Too many moves and the cars aren't stable enough to take that. "It just comes together and it's disappointing for everybody".

The crash took out former Daytona 500 victor Harvick. That's the gamble about Daytona. So I'm grateful for everything.

Neptune's Dark Storm Is Dying According To Scientists
The most recent photos taken by the Hubble Space Telescope of SDS-2015, however, reveal that the storm is dying. Neptune's dark vortices bear close resemblance to the massive storm raging on Jupiter's Great Red Spot .

While Patrick has drawn support from her fans across the country, NASCAR's first woman to lead at Daytona will have a little extra motivation this time around.

She was knocked out of the race when she was caught up in a multi-car crash at Daytona International Speedway that began near the front of the field far from where she was. The first of those had come at Daytona, five years ago.

"We didn't want things to end like that", Eury said, standing in the garage with the Premium Motorsports crew next to Patrick's damaged vehicle. For a time Patrick was very optimistic this Premium Motorsports deal could provide a storybook ending. She would be best served to soak it in, try to really enjoy qualifying and practice and everything in between - everything happening in the days leading up to it, the media attention, all that stuff. Manning is set to lead in the field to green in the Toyota pace vehicle before the race.

"I'm just sad that it ended that way".
