Danica Patrick says she's fine after getting hit in the head by a rock while racing on a dirt track.
Patrick says she got smacked by a stray rock Thursday night, leaving her feeling like she had a concussion. But she says the infield care center checked her out and pronounced her healthy.
Patrick says it hit her "straight in the head" and she's glad she had a hat on or "there would have been blood."
Patrick had one of the most significant crashes of her career last Sunday in Phoenix, slamming into a wall with about 100 laps left and leaving her with a stiff neck.
Patrick became the first woman to win a pole and lead green-flag laps at the Daytona 500 last month, finishing eighth.
