When NASCAR Sprint Cup series rookie driver Danica Patrick made her fulltime series debut at Daytona International Speedway this past February she made quite a first impression.  It’s the type of success Patrick said Thursday she hopes to repeat as the series returns to Daytona for Saturday nights Coke Zero 400.

Patrick became the first woman to score a NASCAR Sprint Cup Series pole, and was the first woman to lead laps during the Daytona 500 leading a total of five.

“Can I do the same thing?” Patrick said Thursday. “Yeah I don’t get worse as the year goes on.  Especially in the early years of running in a new series, so presumably I should hopefully have better experience at doing it especially having done Talladega too.  It’s definitely possible.” MORE>>>
