Danica Patrick has shown consistency in her last four races this season with a best of 22nd and a worst result of 26th.
Only one of those races ended on the lead lap. Patrick scored a 22nd in the Camping World 500 after going the full distance and she added four place-differential points in the process. Since then, she has finished one or two laps off the pace in the past three weeks. Consistency gives her a notebook from which to work, but unless she can remain on the lead lap, her ultimate results are subject to the amount of attrition in a race. Apr 15 - 9:09 PM

Danica Patrick has earned top-20 finishes in half of her starts on two-mile unrestricted, intermediate speedways, which makes this one of her better track types.

She should be watched closely in practice and qualification. Patrick has one top-15 at Auto Club Speedway back in 2014, and although she crashed last spring, she rebounded slightly at Michigan International Speedway. Patrick finished 21st in June and 23rd in August on that track. That might not seem overly impressive, but in the scope of her 2016 season it showed some promise.

Danica Patrick has had an uneven career at Phoenix International Raceway In nine previous starts there, she has three top-20s but no top-15s.

Patrick’s best run was her first. In 2012 as a pre-rookie, she was contending for a top-10 before getting crashed on the last lap and finishing 17th. Her other two top-20s were counterbalanced by a pair of sub-25th-place results in the same season. Last year, she finished 19th in the spring and was 29th in the fall.

Danica Patrick scored two top-10s on similarly-configured, 1.5-mile tracks in 2014, but she has been suffering through a long drought since. In her last 25 efforts on this track type, she has only one more top-15 and a few 16ths.

Last week she finished 17th on the similarly-configured Atlanta Motor Speedway. Fans need to be a little patient to see if she will be able to make a positive adaptation to Ford. She also tends to add place-differential points to her total, which makes her more fantasy relevant.

Danica Patrick earned a pair of top-10s on similarly-configured, 1.5-mile tracks in 2014, but she has not been able to record another in more than two years since.

In her last 24 attempts, Patrick has scored only one additional top-15. That came last fall at Charlotte when she crossed under the checkers 11th. She also has several 16th-place results, so she is expected to at least contend for a top-20. If she fits the right niche on a player’s roster, she could be a good value.

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.

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.
Jan 5 - 12:05 PM

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.
