How Trevor Bayne kept his car on the pavement and out of the wall in Saturday night’s Monster Energy Open race, I still don’t know.
Emergency personnel worked for 15 minutes to extract Aric Almirola from his car after the driver was caught up in a wreck initially involving Joey Logano and Danica Patrick during tonight’s race at Kansas Speedway.
A gear failed on Danica Patrick’s Stewart-Haas Racing Chevrolet during NASCAR Sprint Cup practice at Dover International Speedway today, sending driver Jamie McMurray and Patrick’s team owner Tony Stewart into an unprotected hard wall. That’s worrying for Stewart, who is still recovering from a back injury.
Did we watch a NASCAR Sprint Cup race or a demolition derby today at Talladega? With eight laps to go, Matt Kenseth went flying tail-up into a roll, triggering a restart with four laps to go. On the last lap, cars collided into a huge mass once again as Brad Keselowski drove away from the pack to win.
Two of NASCAR’s biggest stars—Danica Patrick and Kyle Busch—received penalties today from NASCAR’s weekend at Auto Club Speedway. Patrick’s penalty is a clear message that NASCAR wants no one to ever walk towards the track itself, and Busch’s may involve something else he said. (Big “may.”)
Danica Patrick’s had to retire from today’s Auto Club 400 after Kasey Kahne spun her into the wall. Needless to say, she mad.
In a surprising move this week, NASCAR Sprint Cup Series powerhouse Stewart-Haas Racing announced that they were moving from campaigning Chevrolets to Fords for 2017. Naturally, some NASCAR fans are coping with this news better than others.
After getting tapped from behind by Dale Earnhardt Jr. at Kentucky Speedway last night and radioing over an expletive-laden rant, Danica Patrick tapped him back as they entered pit lane. Her crew tried to explain that Dale Jr. was having brake issues all night, but she wouldn’t have it. Nope! Not an excuse.
The announcement of Haas F1, an effort led by NASCAR mogul Gene Haas, has been met with equal amounts of excitement and skepticism. That’s because memories of the failure that was USF1 are still fresh in everyone’s mind. But, look at this: Haas F1 has actually built a car. Whoa. (Update: it might not be theirs)
NASCAR doesn't always do the best job of explaining their debris cautions. Today's race at Texas Motor Speedway has a convenient Tex-Mex excuse for any yellow flags that get thrown. Pit lane commentator Michael Waltrip spilled a taco all over Denny Hamlin's car on the grid.
Do you need a stuffed companion for race weekends, but are deeply disappointed that Puffalumps have been discontinued for years? Never you fear! Now you can buy Danica Patrick's dog. Seriously. That's her dog Dallas as a cuddly stuffed pet.
USA Today's For The Win blog snuck in a tasty little nugget in their celebrity Final Four tie-in interview with Bar Refaeli: she thinks NASCAR driver Danica Patrick would, in fact, make a great model.
Danica Patrick got wrecked not once, but twice by Denny Hamlin this week, including during the last Daytona Duel race. Hamlin tried to explain his side of the story, but she's clearly not having it. Nuh-huh. Oh, and Kurt Busch totally cupped Danica's face after she had words with Hamlin to calm her down. (Too…
There's a debate going on about exactly what Kevin Harvick said about his teammate Danica Patrick and we repeated a version of it, which makes us a part of that debate. Here's what was said and what we think it actually means.
Racing bigwig Gene Haas is getting all his ducks in a row in preparation for the 2016 launch of his new Formula One team. One of those ducks he needs in a row is two drivers. And to that end, he just said he thinks Danica Patrick is a "great candidate" for one of the two seats.
On January 28, Sports Illustrated's Swim Daily website posted a "Throwback Thursday" gallery featuring pictures of Danica Patrick from 2008. Buried within the gallery was an old selfie of Patrick, one that featured an unremarkable amount of nipple. The picture went unremarked upon until TMZ spotted it, prompting SI to…
There is no race car driver that engenders as much debate as Danica Patrick. She's controversial when she crashes, she's controversial when she finishes. She's talked about on track and off. But is she good or does she suck?
Richard Petty is a very famous, very successful, and very old NASCAR driver. So when he said a stupid thing about NASCAR driver Danica Patrick last week, we all let out a collective "ugh" and shook our heads. Just so we know, though, Richard Petty is NOT a sexist. In fact, Richard Petty loves women. A lot.
