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. Jun 26 - 3:58 PM

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.

In what NASCAR announced was the slimmest margin yet, Danica Patrick won over an undisclosed second-place finisher in the Sprint fan vote. She will start her second career all-star race on Saturday night.

Patrick’s previous start came in 2013 after she also won the fan vote. She finished 20th that season. While she should improve this year, it is unlikely she will contend for a top-10.

GoDaddy.com will end its sponsorship of the No. 10 car and Danica Patrick at the end of 2015, according to USA Today, despite a record-setting season that made the decision difficult.

Patrick surpassed Janet Guthrie for the most top-10s by a female driver this season with her ninth-place finish at Bristol. She is in her final year of her current contract and will likely need to find new sponsorship to continue.

Danica Patrick struggled most of Friday afternoon on a track type that has been kind to her in the last two starts. She earned back-to-back top-10s at Martinsville Speedway and Bristol Motor Speedway, but will need to adjust her Chevrolet all night to collect a third straight triumph at Richmond International Raceway.

This was a similar pattern to what she faced at Bristol, but the team got the car working right at the end of the race. Attrition among some key players in the Food City 500 did not hurt either, and she cannot count on that at Richmond.
Apr 24 - 10:30 PM

Danica Patrick earned her sixth career Sprint Cup top-10 at Bristol and became the most prolific female driver in NASCAR history in that regard. She finished ninth in the Food City 500.

More importantly, she now has back-to-back top-10s on short tracks and that makes her a great fantasy value with Richmond International Raceway as the next track on the schedule.
Apr 21 - 6:26 PM

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.
Apr 10 - 2:26 PM

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.
Apr 4 - 10:51 AM

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.
Mar 29 - 8:36 PM

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.
Mar 28 - 12:32 AM

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.
Mar 20 - 12:55 PM

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.
