Danica Patrick

THE MODERATOR: Thank you for coming in, Danica. We appreciate it.

DANICA PATRICK: I didn't really want to.

THE MODERATOR: Obviously not the result you wanted to do, still much to be proud of this month, and with a tremendous career. Tell us a little bit about what happened today, but more than that, what this month meant to you and your impressions of the last year.

DANICA PATRICK: The last year?

THE MODERATOR: This year running the double.

DANICA PATRICK: All right. Let me just talk.

Definitely not a great ending, but I kind of said before I came here that I feel like if it's a complete disaster, 'complete' like as in not in the ballpark at all, look silly, then people might remember that. If I win, people will remember that. But probably anything in between might just be a little part of a big story. So I kind of feel like that's how it is, you know.

I'm appreciative for all the fans, for Go Daddy, for Ed Carpenter Racing for giving me a good car. Today was a tough day. A little bit of it was okay, a lot of it was tough to drive.

Take my mic away, I'll leave. I don't even want to be here because I'm pretty sad. I guess I'll stop there.

I will say, though, for sure I'm very grateful for everybody and for being able to finish it up like I wanted to. It still was a lot of great moments this month, a lot of great moments this year.


Q. You seemed relaxed before the race. Did you have a lot of nerves or emotions in the hours leading up?
DANICA PATRICK: Yeah, for sure, I was. I was definitely nervous. But I found myself most of the time on the grid feeling confused. What part of prerace we were in? I was like, I don't remember this. Where are the taps? When is the anthem? I had all my people around me, so I was in good spirits.

THE MODERATOR: Thank you for joining us. We appreciate it.

DANICA PATRICK: Thank you, guys. Appreciate everything. I'll miss you, most of the time. Maybe you'll miss me just a little. Thanks, guys.
