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."

Danica lived up to her name...Danica GoBackwards
Pushed to the front several times she still managed to race her way back deep in the pack.
Danica Patrick from earlier this year: I leave it up to the government to make good decisions for Americans.
She’s the Anna Kournikova of Nascar. She never wins anything, but she gets the attention because she’s hot.
Must have been the full moon. Makes women into road demons behind the wheel during a full moon.
Hornish had it coming...
Works for me :^)
The video clearly shows Hornish trying to run her up in to the wall to keep her from passing.
Or, as Hornish says, he cut a tire...
It’s racing, sh**t happens.
Back in the old days, the two drivers would have settled this back in the pits man-to-man but I guess that isn’t an option in this case.
That bitch ought to be banned from racing.
I find that really disgusting. It's the same thing that has infected all of society.
Seriously, that was a bush move when Hornish forced her all the way across the track into the wall, and she had to do what she did, or the "Big Boys" would just keep pushing her around. Seems like the misogynists aren't confined to NASCAR, either FR seems to have more than a few as well.
Good for Danica Patrick. She kicked his whining bitch ass.
EVERY young driver learns they have to stand up to the big boys, or they are going to get run over.
And this is FAR from the first-time Hornish has been involved in something like this.
Ask Joey Lugano about that.
Sound like the 101 or 5, 91, 405 fwy's prior to mass traffic times.
In the LA/So.CA area, those racing to work at early hour are hell bent to beat choking traffic...Every minute matters....Whammo..... ya get those 90 mile an hour, one car collision or more...Looks like an aircraft accident.
Anyway that biT** is nuts.
No, it's up to those behind, to use their skills to gain the lead. It's not in your best interest to throw a bitch tantrum and totally and intentionally rear end a competitor while everything is video taped.
Worked for me.
Best thirty seconds of the entire afternoon.
