Patrick gets first pole for a woman in Sprint Cup

| 1 Comment

Danica Patrick became the first woman to qualify in the first starting position at Nascar's highest level Sunday at Daytona International Speedway, CNN reports.
There had been two poles won by woman in the Nationwide Series which is a step below Sprint. Last year Patrick won a pole at Daytona and Shawna Robinson qualified first in 1994 at Atlanta, CNN reports.
The first place qualification surpassed Janet Guthrie's ninth starting positions at Talladaga and Bristol in 1977, Nascar reports.

Thad: You're getting a little close to the line on filing these all on Sunday. Keep them spaced through the week as much as possible. Keep it up.
