According to the National Enquirer, a pal told the magazine that after seeing Wheldon's car go up in flames, Patrick was reduce to tears, as she vowed to friends that, "I will never race again".
Patrick was right behind Wheldon's car before the major crash, which took his life. It's being said that Danica is STILL EMOTIONAL from the experience, and that she's considering ending her career in racing.
The friend also told the magazine that Patrick believes that if she keeps driving, that she'll end up just like Dan Wheldon. National Enquirer
[Editor's Note: Never believe what the National Enquirer writes, but once in a awhile they get it right. There have no other reports on Patrick's pending retirement. On her official web site, Patrick is scheduled to compete in the final three Nationwide series events of the season. The next race is scheduled Nov. 5 in Texas.]
