Danica pleased with stock car progress


DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (KWWL) - Danica Patrick is pleased with her progress in stock car racing but understands she'll face a significant challenge in Saturday's NASCAR Nationwide race at Daytona International Speedway.


Her primary goal: simply finish the race and learn as much as she can along the way, calling it "300 miles of practice."

Patrick continues to stay out of trouble and get more comfortable in the draft. She is fifth-fastest in practice after coming in 26th on the speed charts yesterday, but Patrick and crew chief Tony Eury Jr. have noted that practice speeds aren't particularly relevant at Daytona.
