The first two weeks of racing were a roller coaster for Danica Patrick One week after starting on the pole and leading five laps en route to a record-setting eighth-place finish in the 55th Daytona 500, Danica Patrick and Tony Gibson became “the bug” after a massive accident at Phoenix sent them to a disappointing 39th-place finish.
Danica Patrick was in the top-25 on lap 184 at Phoenix when she exited turn four of the mile oval and the right-front tire of her car suddenly lost all air pressure. Her machine headed straight for the SAFER Barrier on the outside of turn four, and the right front of her GoDaddy.com Chevrolet SS took the brunt of the impact. The car then bounced off the wall and was hit in the driver’s side by the oncoming car of David Ragan, who had nowhere to go.
