In this story, we’ll look at Danica Patrick’s 2018 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Season Series. This was her final season in the sport.
Patrick gave it one last go around in the Daytona 500. She began the Sunday, February 18th, 2018 race at Daytona International Speedway in Daytona Beach, Florida in the 28th position.
She finished 35th in the GoDaddy/Warrior by Danica Patrick car. Her Cup Series career ended with a crash in Lap 101.
Chase Elliott, Brad Keselowski, and Kevin Harvick were running in a pack when the accident happened. When Elliott and Keselowski made contact, it caused Elliott to go spinning.
Patrick was collected in the crash, along with Kasey Kahne, David Ragan, and Martin Truex Jr. The New Jersey native was the only driver of those four, who won the 2017 NASCAR Cup Series Championship, was able to continue the race.
“I guess it was just not meant to be,” Patrick said. “We raced it, it was competitive, that’s all you can do. That’s the gamble about Daytona. It can go so well and it can go so awful. I still have one more (race). It’s not a stock car, but I still have one more (the Indianapolis 500).”
She announced in November 2017 that she would only compete in the Daytona 500 this season. She would also compete in IndyCar’s Indianapolis 500 during Memorial Day weekend, before retiring.
