I know, I know, it’s just practice, but one of Danica’s goals was to consistently be top five in practice. She’s on her way with this one. Especially considering that the fastest car in practice was only 0.094 seconds faster. The 7 car was 0.802 seconds faster than third place Austin Dillon. Eight tenths of a second is a lot.
How fast she can run during the race will be key. I’m hoping for a top ten, maybe a top five finish in Chicago for Danica this week. Eventually things have to start falling her way, and I think we’re getting there.
