With 53 laps to go in Saturday’s Nationwide race at Bristol Motor Speedway, Patrick made contact with Ryan Truex. Patrick’s car spun hard into the wall – first the nose, then the rear, leaving her with a destroyed race car.
After getting out of her car, Patrick waited for the cars to come back around. When they did, Patrick walked onto the track, located Truex and spread her arms apart as if to say, “What gives?”
“It felt like to me – I came out of the corner I was just running down the straight and it felt like he came off the wall,” said Patrick, who was running 17th at the time, two laps down. “I don’t I know if he had a tag-slap off the wall, like he was pushing up and then it snapped on him and he came off. I don’t know. I don’t know if I may be giving him the benefit of the doubt right there.”
Upon first look it didn’t appear as though Truex did anything wrong. It looked liked Patrick got loose, slipped up the track and into Truex’s rear bumper. But the head-on replay does show Truex turning slightly into Patrick’s lane.
“It was my fault. I guess that’s just racing at Bristol,” Truex said. “We were racing there and I just came off the corner, got loose, and as I was saving it just came down the hill and got into her. My fault. I mean, I’m sorry. I didn’t want for that to happen. I don’t know if she thinks I did it on purpose. I guess she’s just mad because she was running good. It was an accident. I apologize.”
Regardless of fault, it was a tough way for Patrick to end this portion of her Nationwide schedule. She’d finished in the top 20 in her first three races, including a career-best fourth-place run two weeks ago at Las Vegas.
She ended up 33rd at Bristol.

Danica Patrick’s first race on the Nationwide Series didn’t go quite as she had hoped. Just the same the 35th place finish as a rookie will give her a lot to walk away learning.
Patrick was taken out of the race in a lap 68 in a large pile-up, resulting in a “did not finish” final standing for her.
The first thing that Patrick learned was that she might be getting a lot of media attention but that does not stop her from being a part of a big one. The big one being the crash she was a part of in the Nationwide Series today in Daytona.
The second thing that she has to continue to work on is the difference between NASCAR and Indy-car language. Patrick repeatedly communicates using her Indy-car lingo. While her team can adapt and she can clarify as to how the car is performing. Still, anyone in NASCAR will tell you that communication is key between a driver and their pit crew, so Patrick will have to work on this some.

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. — After a top-10 taste of stock car racing over the weekend, Danica Patrick has decided to accelerate her learning curve and will enter Saturday’s NASCAR Nationwide Series season-opener at Daytona International Speedway.
Patrick announced her decision Monday, two days after finishing sixth at Daytona in an 80-lap race in the ARCA Series, which is an entry-level, training series for many drivers. The Nationwide Series is NASCAR’s version of Triple-A baseball and a significant step up.
“Racing in the Nationwide Series race was my goal during this entire two-month preparation process,” Patrick said, “but we wanted to make sure it was the right thing to do.
“The ARCA race was a blast and I’m not ready for my first Daytona Speedweeks to end just yet. I want more racing.”

Auto Racing has become the fastest growing spectator sport in the United States. NASCAR fans enjoy the ability to hear their favorite drivers and crew directly via hand held scanners. The frequency range is between 450-460 Mhz. A few drivers have recently changed to 800-900mhz frequencies
Nascanner decided to provide frequency updates on NowPublic free. Here are our first update.

Here is a NASCAR scanner frequency Primer from two sources.
Using a Scanner at a NASCAR Race
Once you’ve experienced a race with a scanner, you can’t imagine watching one without the headphones on your ears. You are able to listen to communication among the driver, his pit crew and spotter, as well as radio broadcasts and track announcements, which are usually otherwise inaudible due to the race noise.
Using a scanner helps you discover the race behind the race, hearing differing pit strategies, learning how the cars are handling and discovering who is mad at whom. Basically, you’ll hear what these guys really want to say, but can’t in front of a television camera.
When I started scanning races, I used a cheap 200-channel scanner with a frequency range reaching 800Mhz, and two sets of inexpensive headphones with a splitter. I bought it on sale in 1997, and the whole set-up cost me around $200. It worked, but I have since learned that there are big differences with scanners, headsets and even antenna’s. In short, you can get by with less expensive set-ups, but spending a few extra dollars will save some frustration with bleed-over and lost reception at the track.
If you don’t want to buy a scanner, you can rent them at the track. The cost to rent one for the weekend is $55-60, so you can do the math to see how quickly you can own one at those prices. Plus, I’ve seen the track-side rental places run out of scanners, so you’re definitely not guaranteed to get one.
Using a Scanner at a NASCAR Race
NASCAR scanner frequency information from Fact Expert
What would it be like to be a part of the thrill and excitement that goes on among the crew of NASCAR driver during a heated race? Those that know the NASCAR frequencies that each individual driver transmits on during the race can say that they’ve experienced it all first hand. Drivers run into all kinds of problems during races and they have a lot of triumphs too. It’s all usually captured through the transmissions they send to their crew as they tear around the track and for those in the know, they can be a part of it all as well. However it should be said that the activity of scanning frequencies can be considered illegal in some cases so it’s important to know what’s going to get you in very big trouble and what areas considered ok to an extent.
First of all, not all frequencies are the same from race to race and track to track. There are groups that keep up with NASCAR frequencies and if you’re planning on making it a part of your regular trips to the races, you may want to join one. That’s not to say that there aren’t places online that you can find these out, but it’s nice to belong to a community of fellow enthusiasts that may be willing to share a lot of information and tips that you can’t always find anywhere else. If frequencies have been changed for any reason, you may find out from a friend in a group or forum before you head out to the track.
NASCAR Frequencies Can Change From Race To Race
Each of the drivers in a race has several NASCAR frequencies to broadcast on. Even the governing body of NASCAR itself can’t determine which frequencies will be usable at all times. There are usually about four available frequencies for a driver. A primary and secondary as well as two alternates. Thankfully there are some websites that list all of these for scanner enthusiasts to make use of. But it’s not just for a single area of NASCAR. In some cases, the frequencies for all of the series including the NationWide, Sprint Cup and even CART racing.
