AVONDALE, Ariz. (AP) - Danica Patrick slammed her car hard into the wall during a race at Phoenix International Raceway, but was uninjured.
Patrick blew a right-front tire coming around turn 4 on Sunday and slammed into the wall. She careened back onto the track and was hit hard again by David Ragan, flipping her hood over the windshield and shredding the left front fender.
Patrick coasted to a stop near the inside wall with pieces of her car strewn across half the home straightaway. A smoking chunk of tire also flew into pit lane.
Patrick climbed out of her car and was quickly cleared by the infield care center.
She became the first woman to win a Sprint Cup pole and lead green-flag laps at the Daytona 500 last week.
