There were high expectations for Danica Patrick's first NASCAR race this weekend. But she ran outside the top 20 for most of Saturday's (Feb. 13) Nationwide Series race at Daytona International Speedway before getting into a massive 12-car wreck just past the halfway point.

"It's important to have realistic expectations," Patrick told MSNBC. "But there's also going to be tough days. And today, I would say, was more of a tough day."
