“It was like a movie scene which they try to make as gnarly as possible,” Danica Patrick told AP.   “It was debris everywhere across the whole track, you could smell the smoke, you could see the billowing smoke on the back straight from the car. There was a chunk of fire that we were driving around. You could see cars scattered.”

Three other drivers were also taken to the hospital with a variety of injuries.
