Danica Patrick wrecked in the Nationwide Series race at Dover International Speedway and finished 30th on Saturday after being involved in an accident with 67 laps to go that began with contact from old friend/racing rival Sam Hornish Jr.
In a race in which Danica Patrick led for a lap, she couldn't find a drafting partner at the end. An incident with Sam Hornish Jr. on the cool-down lap marred a strong effort.
