Danica Patrick Hits Another Milestone: Pole Position At The Daytona 500

Danica Patrick Hits Another Milestone: Pole Position At The Daytona 500


Danica Patrick has achieved yet another milestone for women in NASCAR.

At the Daytona 500 qualifiers this past weekend, she posted the best lap time at 45.817 seconds. In doing so, she became the first woman in history to win pole position at a Sprint Cup race.

At one point she clocked in at 196.434 mph, the fastest top speed for any racer in qualifying since 1990.

Patrick is in her second season as a NASCAR driver. She finished 38th at last year's Daytona 500 after being involved in a crash in the second lap of the race.

Even with pole position, she's still a longshot to win the race at 40-1 odds. But she's already defied greater odds in even getting to NASCAR, let alone winning pole position at arguably the biggest race in North America in only her second year.

The Daytona 500 goes down this Sunday, February 24th. In the meantime, check out the video below from last season where Playbook 360 host Dhani Jones got an inside look at the world of NASCAR.
