Atlanta Motor Speedway: Best Career Finish for Danica Patrick
Danica Patrick has scored her career best finish after entering Sunday’s Sprint Cup Series Race at Atlanta Motor Speedway.
Despite slipping to 6th over the final 2 laps, Danica Patrick couldn’t have been more pleased with the outcome, and was already harboring high hopes for next weekend’s regular-season finale at Richmond International Raceway, a track she doesn’t consider a favorite.
anica Patrick said: “Man, that race felt like it was 700 miles. Sometimes when you are running well they feel like that because you are hoping it stays there, keeps going well, and you keep improving and don’t lose it. There were definitely a couple of times late in the race when we fell back. In the middle of the race the car was very good. We took a little step back, and then it came back in the end. Tony Gibson just reset everything to where we were when we were running well.Obviously the pit stop at the end that was 11 seconds was so good. There were a couple of rough ones in the beginning but that one made up for it because it put us seventh on that restart, and we had a good line on the inside and didn’t get caught up on the outside.”
