Watch the interview from Fox Sports down below…
Danica Patrick made history Sunday night at Bristol Motor Speedway, as she survived being caught up in two crashes not of her making to come home with a ninth-place finish in the Food City 500 in Support of Steve Byrnes and Stand Up To Cancer.
The top 10 was Patrick’s second in three races and the sixth of her career, breaking a tie with Janet Guthrie for the most career top-10 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series finishes by a female driver. And the excellent result moved her all the way up to 13th in Cup points after eight races.
“I didn’t think this day was ever going to end,” Patrick said. “I’m proud of everybody for keeping their heads up and staying positive, and these are the things that happen when you work together as a team.”
Patrick had to overcome plenty of chaos, first going a lap down at Lap 126.
Chris Buescher made contact with Patrick on Lap 279, sending the No. 10 Stewart-Haas Racing Chevrolet down the apron to avoid other cars. After multiple pit stops for repairs, she rejoined the field in 20th.
