Fans are tweeting support for Danica Patrick after her final race before retirement ended in a crash.

Patrick's car hit the wall on lap 67 of the Indy 500 on Sunday, reports CBS Sports, and she was admitted and released from the infield hospital.

While it's an unfortunate end to her career, many of her fans took to Twitter to offer support and spotlight her career accomplishments.

And driver Dale Earnhardt Jr. also thanked Parick for her career.

Patrick's career stretches back to 2005 when she first raced for IndyCar. She became the first woman to win an IndyCar Series race in 2008. She's raced in NASCAR for seven years, and announced her retirement last year.
