Danica Patrick believes she's suffered multiple concussions in her racing career

23 February 2017, 12:54 | Leonard Manning

Jimmie Johnson will be running for his 8th cup championship, and others in the sport are all chasing after him, but the importance of winning the Daytona 500 also weighs heavily with these drivers.

That includes Stewart-Haas Racing driver Danica Patrick, who talked Tuesday at Daytona 500 media day about her own surprising history with concussions.

We all remember seven-time champion Dale Earnhardt's emotional win in 1998 after 20 years of heartbreak, but did you know that since that memorable race, five drivers claimed both the series title and a Daytona 500 victory? "I've always wanted to win a championship so badly, and coming back from this injury, we worked so hard, so to come back this year and win a championship, it would be hard not to hang it up".

"It makes you pay attention to yourself, and there's nothing better than having somebody like Dale Jr. going as far as getting out of the auto as long as he did, saying, 'Hey, I have a problem, ' because it makes it more available to everyone else". But he did allow that hoisting NASCAR's season-ending trophy may just present the ultimate racing exit for the newly married 42-year-old. "But the championship would definitely be the icing on the cake for my career". "[Canada] is our largest market outside the USA and TSN has provided Canadian race fans with the ability to watch live Nascar events for more than 30 years, and we look forward to growing the sport together in the years to come".

"This is the previous year of my deal".

"This is the past year of my deal".

Earnhardt Jr. speaks to the media on Wednesday.

As one of the sport's most popular drivers, it's a pretty big deal for Patrick to speak so candidly about concussions. I love what I do, but I love lots of other things, and I also love life.

"I'd definitely consider it because that's the last box I don't have checked, really", he said.

"There's a few races I'd like to win", he said.
