Danica Patrick takes wild ride in fiery wreck at Kansas

Danica Patrick's frustrating season continued Saturday night when Joey Logano turned into her entering the first turn and sent the No. 10 auto headfirst into the wall at Kansas Speedway.

The incident began when Logano suddenly broke loose next to Danica Patrick in Turn 2, sending both drivers into the outside retaining wall.

Logano and Patrick walked away from the incident, but Almirola needed to be assisted out of his vehicle. Safety crews removed Almirola from his auto, and he was airlifted to the University of Kansas Medical Center for observation. Patrick's vehicle spun into a fiery crash against the outside wall. I tried to back it off but you're going 215 (mph) and it's hard to check up. Almirola has been airlifted to the University Kansas Medical Center for observation. "A lot of us took a hard hit".


"I'm OK, I'm just saying prayers for Aric right now", Logano told FS1 outside the track's care center.

Almirola plowed into Logano's vehicle as it skidded along the wall, the force of the impact sent the rear of the No. 43 into the air. The vehicle just took a big step sideways into the corner.

"I hope Aric's OK", said Patrick, who was eliminated by a wreck for the second consecutive race.


Logano and Patrick were checked and released from the care center. That's the last thing you want to see, a big hit like that for anyone. As the lone driver for Richard Petty Motorsports this season, his health is of the utmost importance for the No. 43 team.

"The right front hopped or something and it took a hard left".

"That's what I said before I walked out, one of these times these accidents aren't going to go good for me". "He definitely is feeling the worst of everybody".
