Danica Patrick had been running at the end of five consecutive races on short, flat tracks before slipping three laps off the pace at Martinsville Speedway two weeks ago.
Patrick seems to take short, flat tracks in spells. She’s had some strong runs at Phoenix International Raceway and one of her six career top-10s in the Cup series came at Martinsville last year, so she could be an interesting dark horse. It is unlikely she will score a top-10 in 2016, but could wind up somewhere in the teens this week. Nov 10 - 9:41 AM

Danica Patrick posted the fifth fastest lap in the first practice session for the Goody's Fast Relief 500 at Martinsville Speedway with a speed of 97.972 mph.

Patrick has recorded some solid runs on flat tracks and short tracks, so she should be watched closely in Saturday’s sessions. Make her a race day decision, but do not overlook her entirely this weekend.
Oct 28 - 1:27 PM

Danica Patrick crashed in her first attempt at Talladega in 2013, finished the next five races, and failed to finish this May with crash damage.

In the five races in which she was running at the end, Patrick completed the distance four times. Still, her best result is only 19th, so she is not the first driver who will be recommended this week even as a dark horse.
Oct 22 - 3:08 PM

Danica Patrick finished 11th in the Bank of America 500 at Charlotte Motor Speedway. That is her best result of the season.

It has now been 58 races since Patrick last finished among the top 10—dating back to April 2015 at Bristol Motor Speedway. She does not need top-10s to be a good fantasy value, but solid top-20s put her in a position to capitalize on mistakes and carnage.
Oct 9 - 8:16 PM

Danica Patrick has sustained crash damage in four of her eight Charlotte Motor Speedway starts.

That has contributed to an average finish of 25.8, which makes this her fifth-worst track. She managed to score two top-20s and a 21st in the four races in which she was damage-free. Patrick’s career-best on this track was a 19th in this race last year.
Oct 7 - 6:52 PM

Danica Patrick has finished 16th or better in four of the last six races on short, flat tracks and was 19th in one other event.

Patrick finished very respectably in 14th in the New Hampshire 301. She was 15th two weeks ago at Richmond International Raceway and if she fits a niche on a fantasy player’s roster, she should be considered.

Danica Patrick could be headed for her worst Chicagoland Speedway finish yet. In three practice sessions this weekend, she has averaged the 29th-fasstest lap. Prior to this weekend, her worst race on this track ended in a 26th.

That was last year when she was not struggling quite as much as she is in 2016. Last year, she started 25th based on practice times; this year she is 26th on speed.
Sep 17 - 8:58 PM

Danica Patrick had been running at the end of three consecutive races at Darlington Raceway until last year’s crash induced DNF (Failure to Finish). She slapped the wall and retired on 190 of 367—finishing 42nd in the process.

Ironically, Patrick was coming off her best finish in 2014. For the first time in three races, she completed the distance and earned a top-25 in 22nd. There will be a lot of dark horses this week and Patrick’s results have been too erratic to recommend starting the No. 10.
Sep 2 - 5:36 PM

In eight previous attempts at Bristol Motor Speedway, Danica Patrick has finished better than she started in six races.

This spring, she finished six positions better than her 33rd-place qualification; last spring was her career-best result. She finished ninth after starting 26th, which added 17 place-differential points to her finishing result.
Aug 19 - 12:32 PM

Danica Patrick has three results of 16th or better this season without a top-10. Her results have not been entirely predictable, but two of these efforts came on short, flat tracks with a 16th at Martinsville Speedway and a 14th at New Hampshire Motor Speedway.

Patrick’s other top-17 came at Dover International Speedway and there are some similarities to the short, flat courses. Like New Hampshire and Martinsville, Dover is a rhythm track and all three of these venues still have their second races to host.
Aug 8 - 6:51 PM

Pocono Raceway has not been particularly kind to Danica Patrick during her brief seven-race career there. She has one top-20, two top-30s, and the remainder of her efforts has been outside that mark.

Patrick’s career-average finish on this track is just shy of 31st and that is about where she can be expected to run this week. There is a little hope in that her best result of 16th came in this race last year after she qualified 20th. If she shows enough speed in practice and makes it to the second round of time trials, she might garner a little attention.

In 2014, Danica Patrick made a name for herself with top-10s in two races on similarly-configured, 1.5-mile tracks. She finished seventh at Kansas Speedway in May and sixth at Atlanta Motor Speedway in August that season, but she has not earned another top-15 in 19 races since.

Patrick came close on a number of occasions. Most recently she was 16th last fall at Texas Motor Speedway, but in 2016 all five of her similarly-configured, 1.5-mile track results have ended in either a 20th- or 21st-place result.
Jul 7 - 9:01 PM

Danica Patrick has finished as well as 17th and as badly as 29th in six NASCAR Cup road races, but one thing has been consistent. She has always finished on the lead lap on this course type.

With Wave Arounds and Free Passes, this is not as difficult as it once was, but it’s an accomplishment nonetheless. Drivers need to be in striking distance in order to score good finishes and that is what Patrick has managed.
Jun 22 - 11:23 AM

Danica Patrick was the fastest driver who failed to advance to the final round of qualification for the Firekeepers Casino 400 at Michigan International Speedway. Her lap of 196.185 mph was good enough for only 25th on the chart.

Patrick rolled to the end of pit road, but inexplicably failed to take to the track as the bubble kept bursting for drivers ahead of her. This will be the 10th time in 15 races that she started worse than 24th, so she is accustomed to racing in traffic.
Jun 10 - 5:10 PM

Danica Patrick got consistently better in each 2.5-mile flat track race last year. She was 37th in the June Pocono Raceway event, 27th at Indianapolis Motor Speedway, and 16th in the fall Pocono race.

Patrick is of marginal interest in games where she does not command an overwhelming price or if she fits the final niche on a roster perfectly, but she should be used sparingly in games that offer multi-entry and not at all in Pick ‘Em games that limit distributions. Her record on the longer flat tracks is simply not good enough to make her a safe bet. In nine starts on these two courses, she has only two lead lap results.
