Danica Patrick had a very eventful Aaron’s 312 on Saturday. She was leading the Nationwide series race with 40 laps to go, and she was in the top ten with approximately 14 laps to go.
But she fell back and eventually was a part of the big wreck at Talladega, the one which sent Eric McClure to the hospital.
And she had a post race dust-up with Sam Hornish Jr.
All in all, a pretty busy day. Joey Logano edged Kyle Busch to win the race.
Patrick will make her second Sprint Cup Series start of the season next week at Darlington Raceway.

Danica Patrick enjoys racing at Daytona and Talladega. For one thing, racing at restrictor-plate superspeedways reminds her most of IndyCar competition.
