It's been a tough start to the season for Danica Patrick, who recently lost another car at the Kansas Speedway after a fiery wreck. The car she was racing has been called the "Wonder Woman" car thanks to the large photo of Wonder Woman adorning the side of the car. After the wreck, it was clear the Wonder Woman car had clearly seen its last day of racing.
Instead of heading to the dump, though, the car will join many others like it.
According to Fox Sports, a member of Patrick's team reached out to Dale Earnhardt Jr. to contribute the wreckage to add to his car graveyard on his North Carolina property. Say hello to the newest graveyard addition!
After Earnhardt Jr. showed off his new addition on Twitter, former Cup driver Mark Martin gave the 26-time winner some grief on his farm truck hauling the Wonder Woman car.
The truck or the car? 🤣 https://t.co/75KPjcwnyg— Mark Martin (@markmartin) May 21, 2017
Hahaha damn man. Hard on my farm truck. I think it's got a few more years. https://t.co/WtrSotximJ— Dale Earnhardt Jr. (@DaleJr) May 21, 2017
Earnhardt started collecting wrecked race cars for his graveyard a long time ago.
Another recent addition was Jeff Gordon's "Rainbow Warrior" car which sat on top of Big Daddy's Restaurant and Oyster Bar in Mooresville, North Carolina, aka Race City, USA, for years. Yes, on top. When the owners decided on some exterior remodeling, Earnhardt Jr. proposed a trade -- one of his 88 cars for the original car atop the restaurant. Deal accepted.
As the saying goes, one man's trash is another man's treasure. Which car will join Earnhardt's treasure chest of wreckage next?
