A frustrated Danica Patrick walked away from a hard crash Sunday after her No. 10 Chevrolet collided with Kasey Kahne's No. 5 Chevy in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race at Fontana.

Patrick was passing Kahne just past the midway part of the race when Kahne clipped her car's right rear panel. The contact sent Patrick slamming into the outside wall at Auto Club Speedway.

After stopping on the infield grass, Patrick climbed from her car, walked back to the track and held her arms out — as if to say "What did you do?" — as Kahne slowly passed back by her under caution.

Patrick was still fuming when she told reporters that Kahne's move was "desperate."

"It's just unfortunate; he must be having a very tough time," she said. Patrick finished next-to-last in the 39-car field and Kahne finished 28th.

Kahne said "I felt really bad because it was far from anything than just trying to hold my position. I've never had an issue with Danica at all."
