For the second week in a row the NASCAR Sprint Cup rookie initiation for Danica Patrick continues to be a rough one. A week after a hard hit at Phoenix International Raceway, Patrick came to Las Vegas Motor Speedway hoping to at least survive a complete a race and score a decent finish at the end of the day.
At least she was able to finish the Kobalt Tools 400 Sunday.
Patrick had a tall order even prior to the green flag. Rain washed out Friday’s qualifying session and Patrick was forced to start 37 based on last season owner points. That was the only highlight of the weekend for the Stewart-Haas Racing driver. MORE>>>
