Hollywood Casino 400: Danica Patrick Crashes Out On Lap 1

Julianne Moore gets star on Hollywood Walk of Fame

Los Angeles police were on hand, but the march remained peaceful. By 11 a.m., Hollywood Boulevard at Western Avenue was packed with people holding banners, blowing air horns and listening to speakers take turns telling their stories from a stage set up on the bed of a truck. Giant speakers helped preachers, musicians and political organizers rally the protesters standing in the street. “Si se puede!” they shouted. “Si se puede! (Yes, we can.)” There were hot dog carts, American flags and plenty of handmade signs. Many of the signs called on Congress to pass legislation that would open a path to citizenship for those who are here illegally. The march around Hollywood began around noon. Garavito and other activists acknowledged that some are losing faith in Congress as the government remains shut down. But they insisted that the time to tackle immigration is now. “We have hope,” said Garavito, a member of the Coalition for Humane Immigrant Rights of Los Angeles, which helped organize the march.

“I knew the start was going to be definitely hairy, but when you arrive at Turn 1 you are not going very fast yet,” Patrick said. “So, I still was off the throttle and I just had enough momentum to go to the middle and so I did and I don’t know why it came around. “Either I drove into hard or the air is just that challenging or we were a little loose. I don’t know. I didn’t even have my front bead blowers on yet just trying to build heat in the front tires.” Patrick was one of many drivers who found the 1.5-mile oval difficult. A new Goodyear tire combined with cold temperatures and a slick track with little grip led to a track-record 15 caution periods Sunday. Among those who encountered trouble was Kyle Busch, who was involved in two separate incidents . The last one as a result of contact with Carl Edwards and Brian Vickers and ended with Busch’s mangled Toyota suffering terminal damage. Patrick said she was “mentally prepared” for the difficult conditions and asked her spotter to help her through the opening laps. “I knew that going into the race based on practice and everything we’ve seen from practice in Cup to the Nationwide race, that losing grip was going to be not that hard to do,” she said. “If I did something wrong, I apologize to everybody on my team. It’s a shame.” Patrick placed last among 43rd drivers Sunday, and Kansas was the fifth time she has failed to finish a race due to an accident.
