When it comes to the Daytona 500, you have to show up in style.

NASCAR: Daytona 500-Media Day

Patrick said she’s excited about Sunday’s race, but admitted “being a little lucky” helps when it comes to actually winning.

This hardly was the only revelation Patrick made at Tuesday’s media day. As NASCAR made headlines with its new concussion protocol, Patrick acknowledged she’s dealt with concussions during her career, explaining that they occur on seemingly every crash.

We’ll have to wait and see whether luck is on Patrick’s side at Sunday’s Daytona 500.
