Danica Patrick and the Future
Danica Patrick is NASCAR’s first woman with 250 starts at the CanAm 500 Pheonix race. The Stewart-Haas driver has logged her 189th start in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series. Patrick also has 61 starts in the NASCAR Xfinity Series. She finished in 28th place in the CamAm 500 Pheonix race.
In 2013 Patrick was the first female to win the NASCAR sprint cup. Patrick has also had the fastest turning lap since 1990, making her able to qualify for Daytona 500. Patrick finished 8th in the Daytona 500, which is the highest finish for a woman, in the Daytona 500. (biography)
“I was brought up to the fastest driver, not the fastest girl. That’s how I’ve always approached my racing career. I’ve been lucky enough to make history and be the first woman to do many things. We have a lot more history to make and we are excited to do it.” (biography) (Idianaplois Speedway)
Too much of our surprise Patrick held a press conference and stated she will no longer be a full-time driver in the 2018 season.
