Better Week: Danica Patrick

Danica Patrick continued taking strides in 2015 with a solid top-10 finish at Martinsville. For Patrick it was the fifth top-10 finish of her career which ties her for the most by any woman in the history of NASCAR.

More importantly, Patrick continued to build momentum.

Through six races Patrick has yet to have a finish outside of the top-30. That is something that she wasn’t able to do in her first two full-time seasons in NASCAR. Through six races Patrick is averaging a finishing spot of 19.3 which also happens to be a personal best for her to start off a season. Things are trending up for Patrick and her Martinsville run capped off a good week for her.
