VIDEO: Danica Patrick's Crash During Gatorade Duels At Daytona

Danica Patrick was having a decent day in her Gatorade Duel race at Daytona on Thursday until the final lap of the race. With drivers jockeying for position and some of them fighting just to get into the Daytona 500 field, Patrick was contacted by another driver and sent towards the infield wall. She hit the wall hard as her car bounced up into the air and got torn up quite a bit. On the replay, it's pretty obvious that this crash wasn't her fault.

The driver that moved down the track into Patrick was No. 43 Aric Amirola, who probably won't be too pleased with himself. Tony Stewart went on to win the Gatorade Duel race. Qualifying for the Daytona 500 with their finishes in the race were Robby Gordon and Michael McDowell.
