Danica Patrick on the pole for the 55th running of the Daytona 500; first female to achieve feat

Race car driver Danica Patrick is used to making history on the track.

She was the first woman to lead laps at the Indianapolis 500 in 2009 finishing third and to win a motor sport event in the IndyCar in Japan in 2008.

Her most recent “first” is winning the Daytona 500 pole winner last week. By doing so, she became the first woman to grab the top spot for any race in NASCAR’s top circuit.

Patrick captured the pole with a lap at 196.434 mph around the historic Daytona International Speedway track. Only Jeff Gordon came the closest to taking her spot by being the only other driver to top 196 mph.

Patrick dives the #10 Chevrolet SS.

The previous highest qualifier in a Cup race for a female, was 1977 when Janet Guthrie started ninth at both Bristol and Talladega.

This is good news to Patrick’s long-line of followers, who have seen her struggle in three NASCAR seasons. Her best finish in 10 Sprint Cup races is 17th and she has only one to-five finish in the Nationwide Series where she finished 10th in the standings in 2012.

Keselowski wins again; dominates at Richmond

compiled by staff and wire reports

Brad Keselowski drove to his second straight NASCAR Nationwide Series victory, dominating all night and then rallying from fourth in green-white-checker finals Friday at Richmond International Raceway.

Keselowski began rebuilding his series points lead, cut to 10 points after he won at Talladega last week and then was docked 50 points for failing post-race inspection. The win gave Brad a 59-point advantage over Kevin Harvick.

Keselowski, an eight-time winner in his Nationwide Series career, was on pace to lead the last 192 laps, but pitted as the leader under a caution with five laps to go, handing Kyle Busch the lead.

But Brad came out of the pits by powering through the field of cars on new tires to pass Busch and teammate Justin Allgaier, who had also stayed out, to win by 0.261 seconds.

Gregg Biffle rallied from fifth on the restart to finish second. Jamie McMurray was third, followed by Busch and Carl Edwards. Allgaier was hurt by his late stretegy, falling to 15th place.
