Danica Patrick on fire and out of the race at lap 142
Ahead of today’s race, Danica Patrick announced her retirement as a full-time Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series driver.
On Lap 142 Danica Patrick went into the wall and caught fire. The back end on the #10 machine came around as Danica entered the corner.
As soon as she corrected with a turn to the right, it stuck. Danica took a hard right hand turn into the wall. Kasey Kahne was on the brakes but got into the back of her after she clipped the wall.
The right front caught fire. As smoke filled the cockpit she eventually had to bring it to a stop, just short of pit road.
