1st Women to qualify for NASCAR Pole Position
Danica Patrick has made history this past weekend. She became the first woman to win the 1st spot in any race in the top-division of NASCAR. The pole position will be at the Daytona 500; the first race of the year which is also considered the biggest race. She set the pace with a blistering lap time of 196 miles per hour. This is Patrick's first full year in the top-division of NASCAR. In her previous ten starts, she qualified no better than 23rd overall. Danica Patrick had raced in the open-wheel IndyCar series where she won a race. All of the other racers are taking Patrick serious this year. If the start of this season is an indicator, NASCAR should be ready for Danica Patrick.
