Danica Patrick has done it once again. She has broken her previous record by taking the fourth slot in the Coke 600 car racing competition.

It was on Thursday that Danica Patrick cleared the speediest round at a rate of 194.595 miles per hour. In the capacity of a woman of substance, she made a mark for herself. She is at the fourth position at the Coca Cola 600 and seems to have bested her previous record.

Patrick later on spoke of how the car she drove was in tiptop condition. She thought it was in the second round that the real difference became obvious. She gave it her all and soon was ready to claim her title. It was a tough time though and Patrick had to really pull her self up by the bootstraps.

“The car was really good,” said Patrick, who also posted the fastest lap in the second round of qualifying. “I think the big difference that came for me was in the second round. (Tony) Gibson (crew chief) made really good adjustments and anticipated the offset from run one to run two really well and the balance was really good. I did that 20 whatever seven (27.750-seconds) which was quickest in the second group.

Danica admits that she is damned proud of what she did. She had been nervous and apprehensive before the event but it was a miracle that everything went smoothly. Her training for the event played a big role in her victory. The overall winner was Jimmie Johnson.

“We have a lot to be proud of. I mean let’s face it this is the part of the weekend that I dreaded every time. I had to train myself to not say I hate qualifying. We were (sixth) in a round, we were first in a round and we were fourth in a round. A lot to be proud of at Stewart-Haas and for the GoDaddy car and it’s going to give us a great starting spot for Sunday,” Danica added.

About half a month ago, Danica showed hyper-speed levels that took her to the top. She is a real eager beaver and knows how to get what she wants. And she will accomplish her goals no matter what hurdles are placed in her way. Patrick is not a whiner.

“I think one of the things that happens when your team gives you a really good race car is you don’t notice the track being off as much,” Patrick said. “It never feels super low grip. Even in the heat of the day today I told the guys ‘I really honestly don’t feel like the grip level is all that much different than when we were here last weekend for the All-Star weekend and it was far cooler. That is a product of good race cars and they have a lot to be proud of at the shop.”

She copes and tries not to mope. Her every action on the race track is measured like that of a cheetah in flight after a gazelle. She admits that she just takes the steering wheel in her hands and goes for it. The grip on the steering wheel is what it’s all about in the end. It is a matter of control. And Danica can beat her rivals with one hand tied behind her back. She deserves two thumbs up for her attitude and aptitude!
