Danica Patrick needs to avoid trouble if she wants to earn her first Bristol top-15. In five previous starts, she has sustained damage in four events and has a best result of 18th.
Patrick has also failed to finish on the lead lap a single time. Her performance is much improved in 2015 and the No. 10 team is on the cusp of being in Chase contention. She qualified 26th for Sunday’s Food City 500. Apr 17 - 9:59 PM

Danica Patrick has finished on the same lap as the leaders in six of her last eight attempts as well as 19 of the last 30 races. Her ability to stay on the lead lap was much less pronounced in the 30 races that preceded this streak; she finished on the lead lap only eight times.

Drivers cannot expect to log very many top-10s if they are not around at the end of a race.

Danica Patrick earned her first top-10 of the season at Martinsville with a seventh and she actually flirted with the top five for a while at the end of the STP 500.

Patrick has never backed up one top-10 with another in her 88-race Cup career. For that matter, she has never posted consecutive top-15s, so the Duck Commander 500 will be critical for her self-confidence. It would be difficult to recommend starting her, but she must be watched closely on the 1.5-mile track.

Danica Patrick earned the fifth top-10 of her career and came within one position of matching her best-ever finish when she crossed under the checkers seventh for the STP 500.

Patrick ran sixth for a while and even flirted with the top five in the closing laps. She had an error-free pit stop at the end and generally ran a flawless race. This was Patrick’s best Martinsville finish and puts her on fantasy owners’ radar screens for the next short, flat track race.

Danica Patrick scored her second-best Martinsville start in Friday’s qualification session. She will roll off the grid 16th for Sunday’s STP 500.

Patrick’s best start came in this race last year, but she lost six laps during the afternoon and finished only 32nd. She showed some signs of strength on the flat half-miler as a rookie, however, with a 12th and 17th in Martinsville’s two races.

Danica Patrick enters the Auto Club 400 with a four-race, top-20 streak on two-mile tracks. She finished 14th in last year’s edition of this race.

Patrick’s worst finish in six starts on this track type was a 26th in his first attempt at Auto Club in 2013. Since then she has finished on the lead lap in every race and could be one of this week’s most pleasant surprises.

Danica Patrick has been star crossed at Phoenix since she first showed up at this track as a pre-rookie in 2012. In that race, she was wrecked on the final lap but still finished 17th. She also sustained crash damage in the next three attempts.

Patrick finally avoided an accident last year and that was the first time in her five-race career in which she finished on the lead lap. It could become a trend—and that could make her a good differentiator this week.

If the past two years are any indication, Danica Patrick should finish in the top 20 this weekend at Las Vegas. Her previous two attempts ended in results that were slightly better than her qualification.

Patrick finished 33rd after starting 37th in 2013 and advanced one position from 22nd to 21st last year. She will start 21st on Sunday.
Mar 7 - 10:29 AM

Danica Patrick returns to the track where she recorded a career-best finish last year. After starting 27th in the Oral-B USA 500, she fell off the lead lap for a time, but managed to get her car right in the closing laps and finish sixth.

This week, she earned her best qualification position at Atlanta and rolls off the grid 18th. If she can stay on the lead lap all day and keep up on the adjustments, it is not out of the question that she might earn her first career top-five.

Danica Patrick was the fastest non-Chase contender in the final practice session for the Sylvania 300. Her top speed of 134.944 mph was 9/100ths of a second slower than Jeff Gordon and eighth overall.

Patrick qualified 18th and should be able to move up through the field to finish in the top 15. Scoring top-10s require a balance of speed and strategy and this team has been inconsistent in getting those paired up, but she should be one of the best values in salary cap games and in Yahoo!’s Group C.

Danica Patrick will utilize Chassis No. 10-823 this week. It was most recently used this March at Phoenix, where it finished 36th.

This chassis was used on two occasions last year—both on short, flat tracks. Its best result has been only 27th at New Hampshire, but Patrick’s 13th-place qualification effort for the Federated Auto Parts 400 suggests she might be learning how to dial it in. Her previous best qualification at Richmond was a 30th.

One week after scoring her career-best finish of sixth at Atlanta, reality will set in quickly for Danica Patrick at Richmond. Her best result on short, flat tracks this year was a 22nd in the Camping World RV Sales 301 at New Hampshire.

So long as that single strong run did not boost her salary cap too much she could still be one of the better values in the game. She will need to improve over her New Hampshire performance and challenge for a top-20, however.

Earlier this season, Danica Patrick scored a career-best finish on the similarly-configured, 1.5-mile track of Kansas Speedway when she crossed under the checkers seventh. She improved on that by one position at Atlanta Motor Speedway this week and finished sixth. This was the fourth top-10 of Patrick’s career.

Patrick was the beneficiary of some well-timed cautions, but she survived two green-white-checkered attempts at the end of the Oral-B USA 500 and avoided the carnage that erupted around her. Next week’s venue, Richmond is not one of her better tracks in terms of career-average finishes, but it is a course with some similarities to unrestricted, intermediate speedways.

Danica Patrick will race chassis No. 10-838 Sunday night in the Oral-B USA 500. This car was used at Texas, where it started 24th and finished 27th.

The chassis was also used at Pocono in June. Patrick cut a tire in that race and crashed before finishing 37th. The No. 10 has not been particularly strong this weekend and qualified only 27th.
