CONCORD, N.C. (AP) - Returning to where she ran go-karts as a kid, Danica Patrick vows to get aggressive in NASCAR - if needed.
Patrick will race on the big track at Charlotte Motor Speedway for the first time in Friday's Nationwide Series race, a week after James Buescher wrecked her at California.
Saying Thursday that Buescher hasn't apologized, Patrick told a story of how she ``ran over'' Sam Hornish Jr. as a teenager running go-karts at Charlotte.
Patrick says she's comfortable being aggressive in NASCAR, saying in IndyCar she sometimes comes across as ``a pushover'' because it's so easy to flip those cars.
Patrick doesn't plan to retaliate against Buescher Friday, but says, ``If he in any way starts to act up out there, yeah, I'm going to do something about it.''
