Danica Patrick Looking for Maximum Returns at Texas

In the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race two weekends ago at Martinsville (Va.) Speedway, Danica Patrick, driver of the No. 10 TaxACT/GoDaddy Chevrolet SS for Stewart-Haas Racing (SHR), and her team rallied back from being a lap down to earn their maximum return of the season thus far – a top-10 finish.

As the series next visits Texas Motor Speedway in Fort Worth for Saturday night’s Duck Commander 500, the team will be looking to achieve maximum results once again. Entering the seventh race of the season, Patrick continues to show improvement at the Sprint Cup level. Her average finish is 19.3 and she’s tied for 16th in the driver standings. In 2013, she had an average finish of 24.3 and was 26th in the standings after six events. Last year, she had an average finish of 26.8 and was ranked 29th heading to the seventh race of the season.

As Patrick prepares to make her sixth career Sprint Cup start at the 1.5-mile Texas oval this weekend, TaxACT, the official tax preparation service partner of Patrick and SHR, returns as the co-primary sponsor of the No. 10 TaxACT/GoDaddy Chevrolet SS.

TaxACT is the maker of do-it-yourself digital tax filing solutions that help millions of Americans file their taxes. The company was the pioneer of free federal tax filing in 2005 and has continued to provide truly free federal tax return filing with no restrictions every year since. TaxACT provides a fast, easy, free federal tax solution with a maximum refund guaranteed. Consumers can visit TaxACT.com to file federal taxes for free.

While the deadline for filing taxes is just days away and people across the country are looking to maximize returns, Patrick and the No. 10 TaxACT/GoDaddy Chevrolet SS team are prepared to capitalize on the momentum they have from their historic run at Martinsville two weeks ago. Patrick’s seventh-place finish was her first top-10 of the season and the fifth top-10 of her 88-race Sprint Cup career. She is now tied with Janet Guthrie for the most top-10 Sprint Cup finishes by a female driver.

This weekend, Patrick and her Daniel Knost-led team hope to build on their first top-10 run together.
