Danica Patrick Ricky Stenhouse Jr.


14 Sep, 2014

Patrick is hit into a wall by Stenhouse during the 400. The accident occurs on turn of lap 257. Both cars are damaged in the accident.

I heard my spotter (Brandon Benesch) say that the 14 (Stewart) was below me on track, and I didn’t know the 17 (Stenhouse Jr.) was there on the high side of the track. My spotter took the blame on that one. I just didn’t know Ricky was up there, and I obviously don’t want to hit his car or anyone else with 10 laps to go…I talked with Ricky afterward and we’re fine. It’s just a tough deal. We finished 19th even with the damage so it was a decent run. We just had a tight car all day.
