Danica Moving Forward

2015 has been good to Danica Patrick and the No. 10 team thus far. Through seven races Patrick has an average finish of 18.5 which is the highest that she has ever had seven races into a season. She is coming off of a 16th-place effort last weekend in Texas which marked her third consecutive top-20 finish of the season.

Bristol could prove to be a big challenge for Patrick.

In her previous five runs in Bristol Patrick has not done all that well. For starters, Patrick has not qualified well at Bristol in her career. Patrick’s average starting spot at Bristol is 33rd and her average finishing spot is 25th. On Sunday Patrick will need to use her current momentum and push herself to another solid top-20 finish, if not something more like a top-15.
