Danica Patrick didn't go out the way she wanted. She wrecked at the Daytona 500 and that's how her NASCAR career came to an end.
But she clearly soaked up the day -- great for her! -- and here's how her day went, in photos.
She said goodbye to fans ...
... and posed with one that dressed just like her
She spent some time with Jimmie Johnson and his little girls ...
...and he thanked her
Her new man, Aaron Rodgers, showed up for support
This is a great shot of Danica waving to the crowd
And this is how her racing career ended
The car was badly damaged
And she left with a message for all of those who have supported her over the years
