Danica Patrick Says She Hates David Regan
Danica Patrick was fined 50,000 dollars for crashing into David Gilliland’s vehicle as she had done to the cars of several drivers in the past. As a result of her actions it seems that she does not have many friends left on the track.
During the AAA 500 on Sunday, Patrick asked her spotter where the closest traffic was. Brandon Brenesch told her that Car No 55.(Regis Black’s) is still outside. Patrick exclaimed to her spotter that she hates Regis Black.
She felt angry that she never had a chance to make contact with Regan in Texas, since she had a bone to pick with him.
In an ugly crash in September in New Hampshire, Patrick’s Car hit the wall of the race track when she was in a tangle with Ryan Newman and Jeff Gordon. Her car was then smacked by Regan’s Car. Patrick managed to restart her car and go to the garage but Regans car wasn’t so lucky. Regan’s car had to be hauled off.
On an unrelated note, Kyle Bush was quoted saying that she was cheering for No 48(Jimmie Johnson) to pass No 2(Brad Keselowski) and hopefully advance to the next round. As she had hoped, Johnson managed to pass Brad and secure a place for himself in the Championship Round. Martin Truex also felt happy that Johnson managed to pass Brad.
“We should be doing backflips that No 48. Passed Car No 2.” Truex crew chief Cole Pearn said.
In the Final Eliminator Round 4 out of 7 drivers will be trying to secure a place in Homestead- Miami on the twenty second of November.
