NASCAR Xfinity Series: Danica Patrick
Danica Patrick has run 180 NASCAR Cup Series races over the previous 5 years. In that time, she’s collected 7 top 10 runs.
In the NASCAR Xfinity Series, she ran just 61 races. She also collected 7 top runs. A 1/3 of the starts, for the same number of top 10’s.
It’s a logical move for her to run the Xfinity Series. Many agree…
“If I were an owner. I would hire Danica,” Ricky Craven states on Sirius XM NASCAR Radio.
“Call her. Today. She’ll drive for me in the Xfinity Series. I think she can win a race in the Xfinity Series.”
“But I don’t think she can win a race in cup and I don’t think she’ll drive next year. Or anytime after, in Cup.”
“She’s capable of winning in the Xfinity Series. I’ve seen her run up front. I saw her lead with authority in Montreal. A race that she could have won if somebody didn’t throw a shoe at her.”
“She could whoop ass there.”

Ray Evernham on Danica Patrick
“I’m surprised that Danica would be out”, Ray Evernham told Dave Moody on Sirius XM Speedway.
“I know here performance is not what what everybody thinks it should be. But I also think that she’s done an amazing job bringing recognition to the sport.”
“The things that bothers me most about the sport is the money seems to be getting thinner and thinner and harder and harder to find. I know that’s just a reset. You just hate to see it happen all at once.”
“I felt like she was ready to win in the Xfinity Series before they moved her up. She was right there knocking on the door. She would make a huge impact on that series.
