Danica Patrick talks about COPD, Nationwide racing series

Posted: Updated:

PHOENIX -- She's the first woman to win a major closed-course car race, and she made headline with her leap into stock car racing earlier this year.

Scott Pasmore talked to Danica Patrick, fresh of her race Saturday night in NASCAR's Nationwide series at Phoenix International Raceway.

Before talking about racing, Patrick filled Scott in on her effort to drive people to learn about chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) in memory of her grandmother who died from emphysema, a form of the disease.
