Jimmie Johnson may have zoomed to take pole for the Coca Cola 600 at Charlotte Motor Speedway tomorrow, but Danica Patrick has plenty to celebrate lately after leading laps at Talladega Superspeedway, scoring a career-best seventh-place finish at Kansas Speedway, and then recording her highest ever non-restrictor plate qualifying result Thursday night, when she finished the first of three qualifying sessions in the 6th spot. She was then “ top of the charts” in the 2nd session with a lap of 194.595 mph before her Stewart-Haas No. 10 Chevy, scored 4th fastest time in the final qualifying session.
"We have a lot to be proud of," Exclaimed the Go Daddy Girl."The car was really good, and I think the big difference that came for me was in the second round. Tony Gibson (her crew chief) made really good adjustments and anticipated the offset from Run One to Run Two really well and the balance was really good.”
Patrick made history last year when she became the first woman in NASCAR history to win pole for the 2013 Daytona 500.
