Roscoe native Danica Patrick ends Daytona in wreckage
DAYTONA BEACH, Flo. (WIFR) -- It's being called the "Danica Double." Beloit-born and Roscoe-raised Danica Patrick calls it a career after this year's Daytona 500 and Indy 500.
But for Patrick, the 60th Great American Race would end just as quickly as it got started.
In the second stage of the race, Chase Elliott clipped Brad Keselowski, setting off a chain reaction. Elliott went into the wall, then collided with Patrick. That's how Danica's NASCAR career would come to an end.
Even thought Patrick didn't finish the race, she said she's not upset with the result.
"We raced it and it was competitive so, that's all you can do," Patrick said. "I mean, that's the gamble about Daytona, is it can go so well and it can go so awful. So, I'm grateful for everything. Thank you to all of the fans, and yeah. Still got one more. It's not a stock car, but we still got one more."
