As reported earlier Tuesday morning, Danica Patrick has claimed that she's not going to race AGAIN, following the death of the 2005, 2011 Indianapolis 500 winner Dan Wheldon, and with good reason, as Dan Wheldon had a BAD FEELING about the event, prior to the race starting.  
According to the National Enquirer, Wheldon made complaints to friends about IndyCar officials decision to allow 34 cars onto the Las Vegas Motor Speedway track for the final race of the season. With 34 cars, it was the MOST JAM-PACKED field this season in the IndyCar series. 
Wheldon believed that the cars, going at speeds of 225 mph, would spell disaster for drivers on the track.
During the season, IndyCar officials had allowed 33 cars to race at the Indianapolis 500. A source told the magazine that with 34 cars closed together, on a tight racetrack, ANY ERROR could cause a major injury, or death to someone.  
Looks like Dan Wheldon had a PREMONITION about how he would die, which sadly came true.
