This week, Danica Patrick and the No. 10 Nature’s Bakery Chevrolet SS for Stewart-Haas Racing (SHR) will embark upon the team’s penultimate journey of the 2016 season as they travel to Phoenix International Raceway for Sunday’s Can-Am 500k NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race.
As Patrick arrives at Phoenix, she will be looking to outperform her effort at the track last fall. In November 2015, Patrick started 21st and earned a 16th-place finish in the rain-shortened event. In eight starts at Phoenix, that effort marked her career-best result at the mile oval. She has scored a total of three top-20 finishes at Phoenix.
In addition to Patrick’s Sprint Cup results at Phoenix, Patrick has competed in five NASCAR Xfinity Series events at the track, earning a top finish of 10th in November 2012.
Patrick has also made one IndyCar Series start at Phoenix, which resulted in a 15th-place finish in 2005.
Entering Sunday’s race, Patrick and the No. 10 Nature’s Bakery team’s journey through the 2016 season has resulted in 13 top-20 finishes and 30 laps led. This weekend, Patrick and the team will be looking to improve on those results and score a top-10 finish at Phoenix.
