The headline “Danica Patrick Gets the Pole” begs for sophomoric jokes but I will refrain. I of course will save them for the next time Kyle Busch sits atop the pole.
Danica Patrick was the fastest car among the 50 drivers attempting to qualify for Saturday’s Nationwide race at Daytona.
Johanna Long qualified twenty-first. With Kelley Earnhardt listed as the owner of Danica’s Go Daddy Chevrolet and Long’s effort, women had a very good day at Daytona.
Dale Jr qualified fourth keeping his momentum alive for Speed Weeks.
It still looks like this weekend will be a very good time to be an Earnhardt fan.
