Danica Patrick’s ‘Wonder’ Woman race car catches fire in scary crash

Danica Patrick’s first race in her Wonder Woman branded #10 car was tonight at the Go Bowling 400 at Kansas Speedway and it had a scary ending! A violent crash took place with 69 laps to go.

Fox Sports 1 has the details:

Joey Logano’s Team Penske Ford turned left heading into Turn 1 after an apparent mechanical failure on the front end, sending Danica Patrick hard into the wall as the two were racing for 11th place in the race.

Patrick’s car exploded into flames and then both Patrick and Logano got hit by a hard-charging Aric Almirola, who clobbered both cars in Turn 2. Patrick and Logano quickly got out of their cars, but Almirola remained in his No. 43 Richard Petty Motorsports Ford.

Thankfully Patrick seemed to be alright and was able to exit the car on her own. As was Logano. Almirola was taken out on a stretcher and transported to a local hospital.

You can watch the scary, fiery crash in the video above.
