Pa­trick takes wild ride in fiery wreck

Cape Breton Post - - Sports -

KANSAS CITY, Kan. Danica Pa­trick’s frus­trat­ing sea­son con­tin­ued Satur­day night at Kansas Speed­way when a bro­ken brake ro­tor on Joey Logano’s car sent them both into the wall and left Aric Almirola nowhere to go. Almirola plowed into Logano’s car as it skid­ded along the wall, the force of the im­pact sent the rear of the No. 43 into the air. Almirola’s car came to rest near the out­side fence, and he ap­peared to tell safety crews he was OK as they cut the roof off to safely get him out. Almirola was placed on a back­board and taken to the in­field care cen­tre, then was air­lifted to the Univer­sity of Kansas Med­i­cal Cen­ter for ob­ser­va­tion. He was con­scious and alert through­out. Logano and Pa­trick were checked and re­leased from the care cen­tre.
