AVONDALE, Ariz. — Danica Patrick was bummed after fading on the last lap of a historic Daytona 500.

Some kind words from owner Tony Stewart and race winner Jimmie Johnson picked up her spirits a little.


“To have somebody like Tony Stewart and Jimmie Johnson tell me that on some level I made good decisions out there at the very end was a really nice thing for them to say,” Patrick said from Phoenix International Raceway on Friday. “It makes me feel a little better. I still feel like I want to have a better plan in the future, but in that moment (they said) I had made some decisions, so it was appreciated.”
