Everyone walked away from this horror last lap crash at Daytona International Speedway for the Coke Zero 400.
3 fans were reportedly injured by flying debris.
Take that testosterone! Danica Patrick, you know her as Go Daddy‘s sexy brunette, millionaire, race car driver – scored the fastest lap at Daytona, exhilarating to a whopping 196.220 mph. Patrick was the eighth driver to make a qualifying attempt in Sunday’s session.
Patrick’s team brought a different car than she drove in a test last month after this model showed better aerodynamic results in the wind tunnel.
“It would be really nice,” she said. “It’s a very big pole for attention. Other races you’d feel as a driver more pleased to get, but this is a team effort.”
A pole position at Daytona is nothing new for Patrick, who qualified first for last year’s season-opening Nationwide race at the 2.5-mile oval. But opening her first full season in Sprint Cup with her first pole in NASCAR’s premier series would be a coup. Source.
Robert Herjavec, the millionaire deal maker from the hit TV show “Shark Tank” was involved in a crash while racing at Daytona International Speedway.
Reportedly, Herjavec, veered off the 3.56-mile track after getting bumped from behind.
Herjavec underwent testing at the infield care center and was released. His Ferrari sustained significant damage to the front end and needed to be towed to the garage.
Robert tweeted after the crash,
“thx everyone 4 your concern-medical released me-rammed from behind- frustrated but OK-car should be OK for race (hash) 2 tmrow.”
Herjavec has built and sold several companies, and his Herjavec Group is Canada’s fastest-growing technology company. He earned Rookie of the Year honors in the Ferrari Challenge series in 2012. source.
