CUP: Zipadelli Stands By Danica

Frustrated with Landon Cassill at Kansas Speedway, Danica Patrick decided to send him a message. She spun Cassill — and wrecked her own car, ending her race early. She was scolded by crew chief Greg Zipadelli, who complained over the team radio: "You know better than to do that." Zipadelli isn't angry at Patrick, and he said he ultimately views Sunday's incident as a learning experience in a year that is supposed to prepare her for next season's jump to a full-time season in the Sprint Cup Series. But Stewart-Haas Racing had added Kansas to her schedule because the repaved track was opened early for testing and Patrick could gain invaluable seat time over the course of the weekend.
