Stewart-Haas Racing driver rallies from late wreck to make Daytona 500 Play: NASCAR Fantasy Live " Buy Daytona 500 gear RELATED: Daytona 500 starting lineup DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. – For the second time this week, Danica Patrick wound up with a wrecked race car and on both occasions fellow driver Denny Hamlin was seen as the culprit. And Patrick , driver of the Stewart-Haas Racing No. 10 Chevrolet, wasn’t happy. MORE: @nascarcasm's take on incident Barely one day after an incident with Hamlin during practice had sent her bouncing off the wall, Patrick was once again going for an unintentional spin at Daytona International Speedway. This time it was in the second of two Budweiser Duel qualifying races. This time it was for keeps. A bad finish and Patrick's Daytona 500 hopes could have vanished. Although she rallied to finish 10th thanks to a green-white-checkered finish that extended the race four laps beyond it's scheduled 60-lap distance, Patrick wasted no time in finding Hamlin after the race. Moments after pulling onto pit road, she climbed from her damaged car and quickly headed for Hamlin’s stopped entry. Hamlin met her halfway, no doubt anticipating a confrontation.

"You did the same thing," Patrick said, referring to the Wednesday incident. "Tighten what up? Nobody else left me with a problem out there." "Nobody has your back like I have it," Hamlin said. "Stop. Listen to me. But I can’t give you an extra two feet because it’s you." "You give me nothing. You give me nothing. It spun my back end around!" countered Patrick . Hamlin: "I understand. It’s because you’re loose. It’s not my problem if you’re loose." Patrick : "Nobody else did it to me." Hamlin: "Then nobody else is getting close to you. We have to get close to you. To get you going forward, we have to get close to you. I know it got you loose." Patrick : "You spun me out. Just like in practice. When I looked in my rearview mirror and you were right here. You weren’t here; you were here." Hamlin: "Absolutely. You were loose entering the corners …" Patrick : “Because you … Denny. It happened twice. The same person, the same way.” Hamlin: "But guess what. I didn’t hit you either time." Patrick : "Well then apparently you don’t have to actually hit me. I like you Denny, you’re my friend." Hamlin: "Does it mean like, 'oh my god, she's loose. I can't run next to her?' What should I do?" Patrick : "It just means don't be up my ass on my left corner … you did it on the straightaway and then you did it in the corner that time. Both times exact same results." Hamlin: "I won't get close to you. I understand now." Patrick : "You can get close; I'm sure everybody gets close. But you don't need to turn me. That's what it did." Denny: "I know it did. I totally get it, but it's something they have to work on." At that point, Tony Stewart, co-owner of SHR, arrives and chides Hamlin. "Tony, I never touched her," Hamlin said. "I never touched her. What do you want me to do? Not run close?" "You watch the video," Stewart said. And with that, the party broke up. Patrick had managed to secure her spot in Sunday's Daytona 500. Because of the severity of damage in Thursday's crash, Patrick will be back behind the wheel of the car she drove to a 10th-place finish last Saturday's Sprint Unlimited for the remainder of the week. She’ll line up 20th for Sunday’s Daytona 500. Hamlin will start 42nd.
