Patrick struggles again after starting 4-car crash
LONG POND, PA. (AP) - Pocono was a race to forget for NASCAR’s first couple.
They’ll probably skip the TV highlights when they get home.
“I was just thinking to myself on that pace lap that before we went green, I was kind of hoping everyone would stay in line since we haven’t had much track time this weekend,” Stenhouse said. “It didn’t play out like that though.”
After a stint in the garage for repairs, Stenhouse returned and finished 34th.
Right behind him in 35th? His girlfriend, Patrick.
Crew chief Tony Gibson threw his arm around Patrick to console her in the garage, her mangled No. 10 Chevrolet nearby.
“We were a lot better today than we’ve been a lot of other days,” she said.
Better, but not good enough.
