Danica Patrick can’t even get retribution right. In a sequence that more or less epitomized her entire racing career, Go Daddy’s favorite spokesperson wound up crashing on Sunday thanks to a failed attempt at taking out Landon Cassill in the Hollywood 400 at Kansas Speedway.
"I had just been really frustrated with the 83. He slammed into me on the front straight for no other reason than his radio communication of, 'She was in the way,' " she explained after the fact (via CBS Sports).
"I've always played fair. But if it's one time I can imagine frustration, but it's been pretty consistent with him getting into me. And so, at some point, I have to stand up for myself or everyone is going to do it.
"The bummer is this was my Texas car [for Chase race No. 8 in two weeks]. We were having a good run and making the car better. And then I'm out of the race, and he's not."
Patrick ultimately finished 32nd; Cassill finished 26th.
