As Danica Patrick is looking to change her luck in Vega$ this weekend, you couldn’t have asked for a worse second week of NASCAR racing. She was out of the last week’s Phoenix race extremely early and Danica also got hit in the read with a rock. Luckily she wasn’t hurt too badly. It’s an emotional roller coaster as Danica won the pole and made some history at the Daytona 500 the week before.
Back to Danica Patrick and that rock which was floggin her noggin.
From USA Today:
As if a headache and sore neck following a hard crash in last week’s Phoenix race wasn’t bad enough for Danica Patrick, her night as a dirt track race fan could have been better.
Patrick, attending a race at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway dirt track, took a rock to the head on Thursday night, she said Friday.
“I feel like I have a concussion from last night,” she said, joking. “It’s really sore. It hit me straight in the head. Good thing I had a hat on, or I feel like there would have been blood.”
