    Danica Patrick - 1st Woman in history to win the Pole at Daytona 500

    Danica Patrick first woman to win Daytona 500 pole


    DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. -- Danica Patrick keeps making history.

    Patrick, who has made headlines since Speedweeks began while fielding questions about her relationship with fellow Cup rookie Ricky Stenhouse Jr., has made headlines again -- for doing something on the track.

    She became the first woman to win the pole position for the Daytona 500 -- and a Sprint Cup event -- on Sunday when the rookie posted a lap of 196.434 mph.

    She posts lap of 196.434 mph


    Very happy for her!

    Congratulations to her! I heard yesterday that she was the fastest in practice.
    This my opinion and to the best of my knowledge, that is, if I'm not joking.

    I hate to say this because I'm all about girl power, but... She'll wreck within the first 50 or so laps IMO.

    Her racing abilities don't impress me much.

    But hey, it's awesome to be the 1st woman ever to win the pole at the big race.

    Way to go!

    My DH keeps saying it isn't about where you start, its where you finish.

    I hope she does good, but have to admit, I agree with you!

    Yeah.

    If I'm remembering correctly, she started pretty close to the front last year and ended up 38th or 39th. She wrecked.

    Daytona is a tough track and she doesn't have much experience there.

    It will be interesting to see how she does though.

    Because its my opinion from watching her wreck in most of her NASCAR starts.

    It wasn't to be mean. It's just what I think history shows.

    LOL

    Formula 1 is more exciting I think, although I don't really watch racing in general.

    Good Move !

    Danica,

    Sometimes bad things happen for a good reason. You were not caught up in that mess today.

    Gotta love women! They can feel it.

    Me either, but she did great! There were a few times, I thought for sure she was going to crash!

    At least she beat her boyfriend! They are competing for Rookie of the Year!

    Much improved in a year.

    Yeah she fish tailed a few times but was able to hold onto it.

    Finishing 8th in the 500 is excellent.
