Logano's Ford then turned hard left and went straight into the left rear of Patrick's No. 10. He immediately dropped the window net by the driver's side door to indicate he was conscious, but safety crews had to cut off the roof to safely get him out. Medical teams placed him on a spine board and took him by stretcher to eventually be airlifted out to the University of Kansas Medical Center. He will be kept overnight for observation May.

Danica Patrick's first race in her Wonder Woman branded #10 auto was tonight at the Go Bowling 400 at Kansas Speedway and it had a scary ending!

As Joey Logano's #22 vehicle headed into turn one, an apparent mechanical failure around his right front wheel caused him to suddenly turn left, hooking into the back right quarterpanel of Danica Patrick's Wonder Woman skinned #10 auto. The debris that was scattered across the track caused a red flag, stopping the race for almost 30 minutes.

"The right front popped and it took a hard left out of nowhere", Logano said, according to Frontstretch's Tom Bowles.

However, he believes he is making slow but steady progress after seeing off Lopez and a partisan crowd to reach the last eight. Halep faces Latvian Anastasija Sevastova in Friday's semi-finals after the world number 22 saw off Kiki Bertens 6-3, 6-3.

Here is Danica's auto, with Logano's vehicle in the background. This is the last thing you want to see is a big hit for anyone. I definitely had a feeling it was the 22 and I am sure that the doctors in the medical center checking my neurological abilities are glad to know I was right that it was Joey. The oft-delayed night race at Kansas Speedway was not over at press time. She also crashed out of the season-opening Daytona 500 and had engine trouble at Las Vegas.

Overheating brakes had been a problem for several drivers Saturday night. She said she was OK physically, but lamented her bad luck.? I mean, why? What else can I say?

"That's what I said before I walked out, one of these times these accidents aren't going to go good for me".
