You’re never going to believe this, but there was a wreck in a NASCAR race and the driver on the receiving end wasn’t happy about it.
Dale Earnhardt Jr. rear-ended Danica Patrick during Saturday night’s Quaker State 400 at Kentucky Speedway, sending Patrick into the outside wall. Patrick later retaliated against Jr. by getting heated with him on pit road. According to NASCAR.com, Jr. blamed the run-in on faulty brakes. Still, Patrick was understandably angry:
“I didn’t have any brakes,” Earnhardt told his team on the radio after the incident. “I don’t even know why we’re out here.”
This didn’t appease Patrick, who colorfully expressed her fury on her own radio.
“(Expletive) 88,” Patrick said to her team. “Did he (expletive) hit me? Go (expletive) yourself. Really?”
That’s just racin’, folks.
