By winning the pole in her rookie Daytona 500 and finishing eighth in that event, Danica Patrick developed a reputation for being a solid restrictor-plate, superspeedway performer, but that is one of only two top-10s in 13 starts for the formidable femme.
Patrick also has a tendency to fall back during races. She has finished worse than she started in 77 percent of her attempts and netted an average of only 24.54. Feb 4 - 6:04 PM

Billy Scott has been named crew chief for the No. 10 team of Danica Patrick.

He comes to Stewart Haas Racing (SHR) from Michael Waltrip Racing (MWR) where since 2014 he was the crew chief for the No. 55 team, which featured drivers David Ragan, Brian Vickers and Michael Waltrip, among others. He also served as crew chief for MWR’s No. 15 team and driver Clint Bowyer from June 2015 through the end of the season. Prior to that role, Scott was a race engineer working under crew chief Rodney Childers, who joined SHR in 2014 and promptly led Harvick to the Sprint Cup championship. Scott came to MWR in 2008 after working in a variety of racing disciplines, including NASCAR, sports cars and sprint cars. It was during his work in the Truck Series in 2003 when Scott decided to focus on engineering. He attended the University of North Carolina at Charlotte, earning a Bachelor of Science degree in mechanical engineering in 2005.-True Speed Communication

Danica Patrick (#10 GoDaddy Chevrolet SS) finished 24th in the November 22nd NASCAR Sprint Cup Series season-ending Ford EcoBoost 400 at Florida's Homestead-Miami Speedway.

The Stewart Haas Racing driver started 35th in the lineup and completed 266 laps of the 267-lap event. Patrick, who competed in all of the season's 36 races, scored two top-10s and closed out the season 24th in the final 2015 Sprint Cup Series driver championship standings.

Danica Patrick hopes that she can regain her early season form on short tracks this weekend. She finished seventh in the first Martinsville Speedway race and followed that up with a ninth at Bristol Motor Speedway in her next attempt. Since then her best result on a course less than a mile in length was a 25th.

Ironically both of Patrick’s top-10s came after she sustained a little damage in the race. Her three modest results came after running cleanly all afternoon. Perhaps she needs a minor fender bender to be successful this week in the Goody's Headache Relief Shot 500 at Martinsville.

A top-15 finish is doubtful for Danica Patrick this week. In 31 career attempts on similarly-configured, 1.5-mile tracks, she has scored only two top-15s and three more 16th-place results.

A result between 20th and 25th is the most likely result this week based on his previous attempts. Fantasy owners should plan accordingly.

Danica Patrick was notably quick in the Friday morning practice session for the Federated Auto Parts 400. She posted a time of 121.591 mph during her 40th to 49th laps on the track. That ranked her fourth in that session.

Some of Patrick’s best runs this season came on short tracks with a seventh at Martinsville Speedway and a ninth at Bristol Motor Speedway in the spring. She failed to keep that mini-streak alive when she finished 25th at Richmond this spring and should be motivated to run well to prove a point.

Danica Patrick failed to advance into the top 24 in round one of qualification and was forced to make a second attempt. During that attempt, she slapped the wall to earn her first Darlington Stripe of the weekend.

Patrick landed 30th on the grid and needs more experience on this track to be a good value in Fantasy NASCAR.

Nature’s Bakery, a rapidly-growing snacks and food brand headquartered in Reno, Nevada, has joined Stewart-Haas Racing to become the primary sponsor of driver Danica Patrick and the No. 10 team in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series beginning with the 2016 season.

The multiyear sponsorship agreement will see Nature’s Bakery and its signature tagline, "Energy for Life’s Great Journeys", adorn Patrick’s No. 10 Chevrolet SS for 28 races a year. "Danica Patrick is one of the most fit and health-conscious drivers in all of racing and she embodies the Nature’s Bakery customer," said Dave Marson, founder of Nature’s Bakery. "We make great products that complement Danica’s lifestyle and the always on-the-go environment in which she competes. Nature’s Bakery provides ‘Energy for Life’s Great Journeys’ and we’re very proud to embark upon this NASCAR journey with Danica and Stewart-Haas Racing."-True Speed Communication

Danica Patrick has made two starts at Indy in her career and she is still looking for her first top-25. She finished 30th in 2013—two laps off the pace—and broke a rear gear last year to claim 42nd.

Patrick has a decent shot at finishing among the top 25 because four of her five flat track attempts this year ended 26th or better including last week’s 24th at New Hampshire Motor Speedway. Unfortunately, her worst result on this course type was a 37th and that came on the other 2.5-mile track of Pocono Raceway after she sustained some crash damage.

Danica Patrick posted the fastest single lap in final practice for the Coke Zero 400 at Daytona International Speedway with a speed of 198.133 mph. Her three teammates, Kurt Busch, Kevin Harvick, and Tony Stewart were all lined up behind her.

The Stewart-Haas Racing teammates were drafting with Hendrick Motorsports as they caught another pack, which underscores how important drafting is on restrictor-plate, superspeedways. Patrick is more than capable of staying out of trouble and finishing in the top 10 this week.

Danica Patrick has been extremely consistent in her last three road course races. She finished 20th and 21st in the 2013/2014 Watkins Glen International races and was 18th in last year’s edition of the Toyota / Save Mart 350.

At her cap level, Patrick is a solid value with top-20 finishes. Midway through the first practice session for the Toyota / Save Mart 350, she sat 23rd on the speed chart and needs to find just a little more speed.

A comparison of Danica Patrick’s first eight races of this season with her last seven reveal that her pace is slowing. In the first eight races, she had an average of 17.6; her last seven ended in an average of 23.3.

Patrick’s early season was marked by top-10s at Martinsville Speedway and Bristol Motor Speedway—two short tracks where she was not expected to excel. Two of her last three attempts this season ended in the mid-teens, so there is some reason to be hopeful.

Danica Patrick has finished every lap of competition at Michigan International Speedway in four starts. Her best result was a 13th in spring 2013 and her worst was a 23rd that August. Last year, she finished 17th and 18th.

Drivers who stay on the lead lap represent a great value because they have an opportunity to employ strategies that can steal top-10 finishes. Patrick should be watched closely in practice.

Danica Patrick finished 29th in her inaugural Pocono Raceway run in 2013. That was the only time in four starts that she finished on the same lap as the leaders.

Patrick has three 30-something results in her last three attempts, but she came close to matching her first effort last August. She qualified well in 10th, but sustained crash damage during the afternoon and finished 30th.
