Danica Patrick at Daytona: Wrecks early in Nationwide race
DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. - Danica Patrick's full-time venture into NASCAR's Nationwide Series is off to a rough start.
Patrick wrecked in Saturday's season opener at Daytona International Speedway, not the way she wanted to start her first full season in stock-car racing.
Patrick, a former IndyCar star who made the jump to NASCAR, also crashed on the final lap of a qualifying race for the Daytona 500 on Thursday. Much like Saturday's accident, that one wasn't her fault.
