After her crew made extensive repairs to her battered race car, Patrick finally returned to the race down 62 laps to the leaders - earning cheers from the grandstands as she pulled out of the garage area.
The accident just minutes after the green flag dropped Monday night began when Elliott Sadler turned five-time NASCAR champion Jimmie Johnson. He shot into the wall, then rolled back down the track.
Patrick was coming along behind the accident and was caught in the chaos. She took her car to the garage to repair the damage.
It marked yet another incident in what's been a rocky SpeedWeeks for Patrick. She was wrecked in Thursday's qualifying race, and after winning the pole for the Nationwide Series race, she was wrecked by JR Motorsports teammate Cole Whitt.
Her tally is three wrecks in three races, and none were of her doing.
