This week, I am taking “Earning Her Stripes” on the road and onto the track at Kansas Speedway!
Last weekend, the Monster Mile surely wasn’t nice to Patrick. After going a lap down after just 30 laps complete, her frustration seemed to get the best of her on the radio and out on the track. Apologizing to her team at the end, Dover is one of those races that Patrick would rather forget.
A few weeks ago, Patrick and Ricky Stenhouse Jr. joined country music artist Colt Ford as he filmed a music video for his latest single, “Drivin’ Around Song.” The video, shot in Mooresville, North Carolina, was released this week. Click here to watch!
This week, Patrick is back at Kansas Speedway for the third time. Sporting some new colors during the month of October, Patrick and GoDaddy are bringing awareness to breast cancer research by trading the neon green for florescent pink. GoDaddy will also donate $50,000 to the National Breast Cancer Foundation.
Kicking off the weekend Thursday at Kansas Speedway, Patrick and the rest of the Sprint Cup Series drivers took part in a test session, trying out a new tire for the race weekend.
Friday was filled with practice sessions and qualifying. Finishing practice session 1 in P23, Patrick ran 14 laps with a top speed of 182.97. Qualifying later in the afternoon, Patrick placed the GoDaddy Chevrolet P29 with a speed of 182.039. Patrick’s significant other, and Rookie of the Year competitor will be starting 2nd next to Pole winner Kevin Harvick.
