Danica Patrick went a lap down early but gained it back to finish a solid 17th in Sunday’s Quicken Loans 400 NASCAR Sprint Cup race at Michigan International Speedway in Brooklyn.

Patrick, driver of the No. 10 GoDaddy Chevrolet SS for Stewart-Haas Racing (SHR), went down a lap early the race, but thanks to some hard driving and a good car, she put herself in a position to be awarded the “Lucky Dog.”

That opportunity came when the caution flag flew on lap 147; she got her lap back and restarted 21st. From there she drove to a 17th-place finish.

“We were pretty good,” Patrick said. “The guys did a good job on the adjustments, and it was fun to drive. The race seemed to go by quick. We needed a little bit of track position, but it was a good day for us. Thanks to GoDaddy and everyone on my team. We continue to get better.”
