LAS VEGAS — Danica Patrick is recovering after being hit in the head with a rock.

FOX Sports reported that the incident happened Thursday night as the NASCAR driver was at The Dirt Track at Las Vegas Motor Speedway while attending the World of Outlaws show.

“I got hit by a rock at The Dirt Track and I took it to the ground,” Patrick said. “So I feel like it’s really sore… It hit me straight in the head. Good thing I had a hat on or there would have been blood.”

Patrick also blew a right front tire and slammed into the wall on Lap 185 during NASCAR Sprint Cup race at Phoenix International Raceway on Sunday.

Patrick said she suffered a headache and a sore neck on Friday following the Phoenix accident.
