Nature's Bakery Racing: Danica Patrick New Hampshire II Race Advance

Nov. 30, -0001

KANNAPOLIS, North Carolina – As Danica Patrick and the No. 10 Nature’s Bakery Chevrolet SS team for Stewart-Haas Racing (SHR) return to the Granite State’s New Hampshire Motor Speedway in Loudon for Sunday’s New England 300 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race, they’re looking to improve upon their results at the track.

Patrick has made seven Sprint Cup starts at New Hampshire. Last September, she left the track with a 40th-place finish after contact from another racecar put her out of the event nearly 100 laps before the checkered flag. However, Patrick and the No. 10 team returned to the 1.058-mile track in July and scored her career-best result at the track – a 14th-place effort.

In two Xfinity Series starts, she finished a career-best 14th in July 2012. Patrick also earned a sixth-place result in the 2011 IndyCar Series race at the track.

While Patrick has scored a top-10 at New Hampshire Motor Speedway in open-wheel competition, she’s yet to find the same success in stock cars.

This weekend could provide a great opportunity to change her results in the Granite State, as New Hampshire is aptly nicknamed thanks to its extensive rock formations and quarries. And on the strength of her solid run earlier this year, Patrick and her team look to be rock solid once again at New Hampshire and take home a top-10 finish Sunday.

 

DANICA PATRICK, Driver of the No. 10 Nature’s Bakery Chevrolet SS for Stewart-Haas Racing:

 

What are your overall thoughts on New Hampshire Motor Speedway?

“I really like going to New Hampshire. I like that area of the country and I like the restaurants and what it has to offer. I haven’t been there a whole lot, but I enjoy it.”

 

How challenging is New Hampshire Motor Speedway?

“It’s flat and tough to get around, sometimes. You just have to make sure you get through the corners OK and are able to get on the gas quick on the straightaways. It’s tough but, if you have a good car, you can pass and move up through the field. But it can be challenging if it’s not working in your favor.”
