Danica Patrick finished fourth in the Advance Auto Parts Clash.
Patrick stayed out of trouble all afternoon and was not mentioned until the checkered flag waved, but she got a run on the final lap and finished side-by-side-by-side with Kyle Busch and Alex Bowman. That knocked the rust off and makes her a more interesting pick for next week’s Daytona 500. Feb 19 - 1:15 PM

Aspen Dental, one of the largest and fastest-growing brands in the United States, has expanded its partnership with Stewart-Haas Racing (SHR) to become the lead sponsor of Danica Patrick and the No. 10 team during the 2017 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series season.

The No. 10 Aspen Dental Ford Fusion will debut in the season-opening Daytona 500 Feb. 26 at Daytona (Fla.) International Speedway. Aspen Dental has been a partner of SHR since 2012 and aligned with Patrick since 2014. As the brand enters its sixth year with SHR and fourth with Patrick, it will serve as the primary sponsor of Patrick’s No. 10 Ford Fusion for a double-digit slate of races in 2017.-True Speed Communication

In her career, Danica Patrick has earned six career top-10s and two of those were scored at Daytona International Speedway.

Her first top-10 came in her rookie season of 2013 after leading the field to green from the pole and running with the leaders much of the afternoon. Her second was earned under the lights in July the next year in a face shorted by weather. Patrick will be a reasonably priced dark horse in this year’s 500.

Stewart-Haas Racing has sued former Danica Patrick sponsor, Nature’s Bakery for reneging on year’s two and three of a three-year contract according to the NBC Sports.

The sponsor was supposed to be the primary on Patrick for 20 races this year with a price tag of $15 million. Instead, they sent a letter in mid-January terminating the sponsorship and leaving the No. 10 hood bare. SHR expects to carry on like normal, but certainly they will be scrambling to replace the lost revenue.

Danica Patrick has her best three-year average finish at Atlanta Motor Speedway with a 14.0; her best course that holds more than one race per year is Kansas Speedway at 18.3.

Both of these are similarly-configured, 1.5-mile tracks, and that bodes well for Patrick’s potential. This track type dominates the schedule with 10 races and most organizations put a lot of effort into them. The fast femme will be a notable dark horse on several occasions in 2017.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
