Skip to comments.Video: Danica Patrick wrecks Sam Hornish Jr. after checkered flag

Danica Patrick wasn't pleased with Sam Hornish Jr. in Saturday's Nationwide Series race at Talladega and made it known by wrecking him after the checkered flag.
In light of what had just happened moments earlier with Eric McClure having to be airlifted to the hospital after a multi-car wreck, her behavior is all the more astonishing. However, neither driver was called to the NASCAR hauler after the incident.
Hornish finished 12th and Patrick 13th in a race won by Joey Logano.
Sam Hornish Jr.:
"... After the race was over, we got right-reared by the 7 car (Danica Patrick). I don't know what she had in her head, but she decided to right-rear us, wreck the car after the race was over. That's really frustrating. It's not the worst day ever, but not what we wanted. I feel like we may have gone a little too early. We got separated and then Brad got wrecked.
"I don't know what happened. Sam came up to me after the race and apologized, so I'm not sure what was wrong with his car, but he came across the track at the front of the start/finish line."

She was behind him and he don't have to pull over or change lanes because this b*tch is pretty.
This b*tch intentionally rear ended the other driver after the stinking race was over. She threw a hissy fit....lol
This is the same b**tch who stomp her feet and cry, if she don't get her way slick. Could this not be anymore evident to you?
There was no race when this occurred. The race was over when this bitch went off. Hello???
Try reading the article next time slick.
Clearly, some here absolutely approve of it.
Her behavior and skill level is more fit for demolition derby at the local carnival.
Hornish pretty much forced her into the wall...her response was fairly restrained considering.
Wrong, he didn't drive her anywhere, he wasn't behind her wheel.
Her lack of skill put her where she was, and after the race retaliated like a scorned girl on prom night.
You are correct as usual. We seem to have a lot of little boys who think girls have cooties, on the NASCAR threads
That is about the most twisted logic I have seen on this thread.
Thank you! Professional sports are about money, and good-looking women draw paying male eyeballs. And she must be a reasonably good race driver, or she’d be dead, or consistently dead last.
I hope they all enjoy spending their money!
That doesn’t leave many drivers for you to like.
Amen. This reminds me why I usually stay off the NASCAR threads. I really don’t understand why Danica is being held to a different standard than the rest of the field. I can only assume she is supposed to be home cooking supper.
I’m using twisted logic? So people accusing me of being a misogynist because I don’t like Danica Patrick and disapprove of how she wrecked Sam Hornish AFTER THE RACE are using sound logic?
Your statement is laughable.
Apparently, if you don’t like Danica Patrick, certain posters are frothing at the mouth to say you hate all women.
Who’s using twisted logic again?
You’re a flipping idiot if that’s why you think many of us don’t approve of Danica Patrick. The reason I don’t like her is because she IS A CRAPPY DRIVER who is taking a spot away from another more deserving driver. It’s essentially Affirmative Action for NASCAR and it makes me mad as hell.
Until she proves that she can run with the big boys (which she never has) then she needs to stay out of the Sprint Cup until she proves she can.
It’s blatantly obvious the only reason she’s in the Sprint Cup is because she’s a woman. If she was a man she wouldn’t even be in nationwide.
She needs to prove she can race at the top before she is placed in the top.
It’s just silly. They need a sign, “No Girls Allowed”
you said “I have no problem with Danica serving justice DURING THE RACE. I do have a problem that she wrecked him AFTER the race.
If she had done it in another race later in the season, I would have said well done!. As it stands now, she just increased my dislike of her.”
So you would have preferred she wreck 10 or 15 cars? Dealing justice after the race is over, has a lot of history by a lot of drivers. I didn’t call you a name. I should have simply said, “you may not be stupid but your posts sure look that way” It’s racing dude, let the lady race. Just post, “I hate Danica”.
Danica is disliked in the racing world--was loudly booed at Indy last year--because she is an affirmative action hire. Popular with sponsors because she is considered, by some, to be attractive, even though she is less skilled as a driver than her far less well-known male competitors.
Sports is supposedly one of the few places where one's skill is all that matters. She gets a ride because of her gender, not because she is a great driver. She is a novelty act, and nothing more.
