Danica Patrick Has A Bad Day At Indy

You think you had a bad day? Danica Patrick had a far worse one. She had troubled qualifying at the Indy 500 because of the mechanical setup of the car. And then worse, much worse, her comments about the car problems were overheard on the public address system due to an open mike, resulting in a chorus of boos from the audience.

Apparently the car was running fast, at over 224mph. But there were some serious handling problems with the car, making Patrick only qualify at #23 among the top 24 cars.

Patrick was reportedly upset and even crying about the situation. She believed in the mechanics and the car, but it just didn't feel right and wasn't handling like it normally should.
