There was a scary moment in Saturday’s Go Bowling 400 at Kansas Speedway shortly after a restart with 69 laps to go. Joey Logano’s Team Penske Ford turned left heading into Turn 1 after an apparent mechanical failure on the front end, sending Danica Patrick hard into the wall as the two were racing for 11th place in the race. “Just saying a lot of prayers for Aric (Almirola) right now,” said Logano. “A lot of us took a hard hit. Something broke on my car, I don’t know what it was. I noticed it as I was trying to go in. I tried to back it off but you’re going 215 (mph) and it’s hard to check up. The car just took a bit step sideways into the corner and I hooked Danica (Patrick). “I just hope everyone is OK. I hope Aric is alright,” added Logano. “That’s the last thing you want to see, a big hit like that for anyone. It’s unfortunate for everyone. Let’s hope that Aric is alright.” Patrick’s car exploded into flames and then both Patrick and Logano got hit by a hard-charging Aric Almirola, who clobbered both cars in Turn 2. Patrick and Logano quickly got out of their cars, but Almirola remained in his No. 43 Richard Petty Motorsports Ford. “When he (Logano) said he had a failure I can’t say it made me feel that much better in the moment,” Patrick said. “I am just frustrated for the lack of breaks I get. It seems like every time things are going better and something happens I get crashed or am in a crash. “Unfortunately there were two of us that got collected and while I am okay, one of these times one if these really big accidents someone is not going to be okay,” said Patrick. “Aric (Almirola) is not okay and his car looked the best of everybody.” The race was red-flagged as safety workers had to extricate Almirola from his car. Immediately after the impact, Almirola dropped his window net, but he did not get out of his car. Instead, safety workers removed the windshield and the rood of his car and worked to extricate him from the damaged vehicle. Almirola was taken out of the car and placed on a spine board and a stretcher. He was awake and alert when the rescue workers took him out of the car and loaded him into the ambulance. From there, Almirola was airlifted to the University of Kansas Medical Center for further observation and evaluation. Martin Truex Jr. won the race.

Jim: I have no doubt this is Patrick’s final season at Stewart-Haas Racing. Whether she may entertain the thought of joining another, less competitive team, I don’t know. But if she can’t acquire necessary sponsorship while competing at a top-level team like SHR, it’s unlikely she would do so anywhere else. At some point in time in every driver’s career, performance becomes the deciding factor in their future. Danica has reached that point and probably was given a longer opportunity than most considering her lack of results. With Dale Earnhardt Jr. and Patrick gone in 2018, the media’s top-two favorite “go to” subjects will be gone and they might actually have to spend some time discovering the rest of the talent in the garage.

Nick: I can’t say for certainty if this is Danica’s final season, but that interview was very telling. Regardless, I feel she is nearing the end of this NASCAR experiment, having struggled for results in top-tier equipment.

It’s personal for Patrick, one of the most prominent faces in the sport. And it’s business, too, given the sponsorship-driven world of NASCAR and Patrick’s ability to move the needle from a marketing standpoint despite her struggles on the track.

After a nasty, fiery wreck at the Kansas Speedway, it should have been off to the dump with Danica Patrick’s Wonder Woman. Instead, the car will add to Dale Earnhardt Jr.’s car graveyard on his North Carolina property.

Joey Logano appeared to get loose after a right-front issue with 68 laps remaining and got into the right rear of Danica Patrick’s car, sending her into the wall. Logano then got smashed again by Almirola, who was apparently unable to swerve away from the wreck in front of him.

Nature’s Bakery, a privately held snack and food brand, is happy about the partnership as well. Founder Dave Marson told NASCAR.com that overall sales had grown more than 50% since they entered into a partnership with Patrick and the Stewart-Haas racing team.

“It’s a little bit exhausting, because you always feel like you have to be somewhat ready – and NASCAR doesn’t always do the best job of giving us a lot of notice,” Patrick said. “Like there have been many times when I’ve been on the bus in my pajamas and they’re like, ‘Green flag in 15 minutes.’

It sounds as if somebody will pony up a pile of money, even if it’s not Nature’s Bakery. Patrick and the company seemed like an odd fit from the beginning. Patrick most certainly leads and promotes a healthy lifestyle, but Nature’s Bakery is a small company among sponsorship giants like Lowe’s and Nationwide Insurance. It has fewer than 500 employees in the United States.

“And I’m like, ‘What???!!! Did you not have any indication that this was coming 15 minutes ago? So that’s kind of the exhausting part, because you have to remain pretty ready. Hopefully NASCAR can do a better job of giving us a little bit more notice than 15 minutes to green.”

“At this point and time it’s racing but while I’m in racing, it’s fun to develop relationships and plant the seed about all the other things that I love to do that will go beyond racing,” Patrick tells FOXBusiness.com.

Patrick has recently teamed up with Aspen Dental, a branded dental practice with over 500 locations across the U.S., to help veterans get free dental care.

“Unfortunately there were two of us that got collected and while I am okay, one of these times one if these really big accidents someone is not going to be okay,” said Patrick. “Aric (Almirola) is not okay and his car looked the best of everybody.”

And she’s not stopping there. Patrick is also developing a new clothing line called “Warrior,” that is set to launch in January 2017, and has aspirations for a TV career.

Nature’s Bakery, based in Nevada and specializing in healthy products like gluten-free fig bars and dairy-free brownies, is reneging on its Cup sponsorship deal with Patrick, who drives for Stewart-Haas Racing. The original deal — signed before the start of the 2016 season — spans three years and is worth an estimated $45 million.

Added Patrick, via Fox Sports: “Unfortunately, there were two of us that got collected and while I am OK, one of these times one of these really big accidents, someone is not going to be OK. Aric is not OK and his car looked the best of everybody. You never know when it is going to be the wrong hit.”
