Danica Patrick gets cozy with new boyfriend before last NASCAR race

Traveling to his first Daytona 500 from Wheeling West Virginia Dallas keeps an eye on the campground while his humans relax on the roof of their RV

For Danica Patrick, it was a proud but sad ending to her NASCAR career. Ahead of last season's Daytona 500 Patrick estimated she's had a dozen concussions in her career. "Thank you to all the fans, and yeah still got one more".

The couple shared a kiss at the Daytona 500 on Sunday, with Rodgers holding Patrick by the shoulders before she hit the track.

She has completed 53,460 laps of competition since her arrival in the Cup series. I was kind of feeling him out to see how aggressive he wanted to be and just kind of got light over the transition and was a big push at the wrong time, I guess.

That's an average of 1.4 per 36-race season during her five full-time seasons in the series. She never won a race and failed to have a top 5 finish. Just trying to race but I had such a run I couldn't keep stopping.

A Turkish-backed Free Syrian Army fighter looks through a pair of military binoculars outside of Afrin , Syria February 17, 2018. Cavusoglu expressed Turkish anger that a cleric they suspect of being behind a 2016 attempted coup is living in Pennsylvania.

Patrick will drive for Ed Carpenter Racing in the Indianapolis 500, in which her third-place finish in 2009 is the best in that event by a female. The wreckage left the 2013 Daytona 500 pole victor with a race vehicle that just wouldn't start. "That's the gamble about Daytona, it can go so well and it can go so very bad".

"He said his last Daytona didn't go well either and I was like, 'Oh, wow". So I'm grateful for everything. The 103 laps she finished Sunday was the fewest amount in her short career at Daytona International Speedway. She teamed up with former sponsor GoDaddy and reunited with her former crew chief Tony Eury Jr.

Chase Elliott tried to block Brad Keselowski but instead, it turned into a seven-car accident that would wind up engulfing Patrick in its wake. "And I say that because we're all competitors, and it's hard for us - even if we try going in to just enjoy the experience - it's hard for us to not get competitive and not want to do our best".
