At the Daytona International Speedway, during the Coke Zero 400, Danica Patrick managed to claw her way into the top 10. Then, on the final lap, she crashed right before the finish line.A video summary of the race is embedded below, including both Danica’s crash and other incidents that cost drivers good positions.
Danica eventually came up on the 13th position, with the race being won by the driver who also dominated it from start to finish: Jimmie Johnson. In winning, he’s become the first driver to win both Daytona races (the 500 and 400) in the same season.
