Danica Patrick gets knocked to the ground by rock

NASCAR driver Danica Patrick has been hit with plenty of criticism over the past few years. But what hit her Thursday night may be a first.

According to the USA TODAY, Patrick was struck in the head by a flying rock while attending a dirt race at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway. The force was so great that it even sent the diminutive driver to the ground.
"I feel like I have a concussion from last night," she said, half-joking. "It's really sore. It hit me straight in the head. Good thing I had a hat on, or I feel like there would have been blood."
The incident marked the second time in less than a week that a racing-related activity caused Patrick a headache. The Sprint Cup rookie said she suffered a sore neck and a bad headache following her crash into the wall during the Subway Fresh Fit 500 at Phoenix International Speedway last Sunday. She finished 39th.

It has been a rough week for Danica, indeed.
