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.

Despite finishing seventh in the 5-hour Energy 400 at Kansas, Danica Patrick has shown only minor improvement on the similarly-configured, 1.5-mile tracks this year. Her five-race average on this course type to date is 23.0 compared to a 26.7 in 2013.

This is the type of track that Patrick enjoys and where she needs to show the most improvement. Once she begins finishing the in the top 20 with regularity, she could become a weekly threat.

Danica Patrick crashed hard in final practice for the Cheez-it 355k at the Glen. She buried her No. 10 car firewall-deep into a tire barrier exiting the inner loop after losing a left front tire.

Patrick already changed an engine after missing a shift in the first practice, but this chassis was race-tested. The car she will qualify will not have any track time before qualification on Saturday. Her status as a potential dark horse has taken a serious hit.
Aug 8 - 5:57 PM

Danica Patrick strained an engine on her No. 10 Chevrolet in the first practice session for the Cheez-it 355k at the Glen and will have to change powerplants before continuing. She will start at the back of the pack on Sunday regardless of her qualification effort.

That hurts Patrick’s odds of finishing in the top 20 and fantasy players should watch final practice closely to see if she has an incident-free session.
Aug 8 - 3:21 PM

Danica Patrick will race chassis 10-759 this week at the Glen. It has been used for all three of her Cup road course starts.

In those races she has steadily improved as she has learned exactly what this chassis wants. Fantasy players should consider Patrick a strong dark horse candidate to finish in the top 15, which makes them fantasy relevant in most games.

Danica Patrick has shown consistent improvement in three road course starts. She finished 29th last June at Sonoma, 20th at the Glen, and was 18th earlier this year in California.

If the progression continues, she could be one of the top values at her salary cap level with a result in the mid-teens. She should be considered one of the top picks in Yahoo!’s Group C.
Aug 8 - 11:58 AM

Danica Patrick is searching for her first top-10 on a flat track after posting a best result of 22nd this season in the Camping World RV Sales 301 at New Hampshire.

She got off to a good start with a 10th-place effort in qualification. This is the seventh time she has advanced to the final round of time trials, but she has only one top-20—a seventh at Kansas—to show for it.
Aug 2 - 9:29 AM

Danica Patrick will use chassis No. 10-828 this week. It was last raced at Auto Club this spring.

Patrick has been able to improve her performance in this chassis. She first raced it at Homestead at the end of the 2013 season and finished 20th. She was 21st in it at Las Vegas and then finally cracked the top 15 in the Auto Club 400. She finished 14th. Patrick should be expected to finish somewhere in the mid-teens this week.

Danica Patrick hopes that her second Brickyard 400 start goes better than her first. She qualified 33rd in this race last year, lost two laps, and finished 30th.

Increased competition in this marquee race limits her usefulness to fantasy players. She should be watched for signs of strength and if they are present owners might consider starting her at Pocono or New Hampshire later in the year.
Jul 26 - 9:14 AM

Danica Patrick will run chassis 10-794 which has been utilized as a primary chassis on a few occasions and a backup several times this year.

This chassis last saw a complete race last September in Atlanta where she finished 21st. It was intended to be the primary at Bristol this spring but was sidelined following an accident in practice. Given the chassis’ checkered past, it might be best to leave Patrick in the garage on Sunday.

Success means different things to different people. For Danica Patrick it can be measured in the number of times she has finish on the lead lap in the last five races.

Often vilified, Patrick has nevertheless been a good value in recent weeks because her 22nd-place result in the Camping World RV Sales 301 was the fifth consecutive race in which she finished on the lead lap. In order to be in position to score top-10s, drivers have to be in contact with the leaders and Patrick has shown steady improvement in this regard.
