Ed Carpenter Racing’s Danica Patrick in the No.13 GoDaddy,com Chevrolet began Fast Friday at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway ahead of qualifying for 102nd running of the Indianapolis 500 presented by PennGrade Motor Oil which takes place next weekend.
Patrick ended the day with the 20th fastest speed of the day and speaking following her day in the car she said:
We started off the day with a mechanical issue, so we got a little delayed taking off, but it wasn’t really the worst thing because the car was really good on the first run. We did a step of trim and it was a little bit loose the second run, but still pretty good and definitely fast. To go to the next step, we had to make some changes back in the garage anyway, so we went back, and in that point in time, the track had slowed down and we just decided to sit for a while. We ended up coming to the conclusion that the car was pretty good and there was no reason to go out there and get lost or angry or confused because the speed was not in the track anymore. We just decided to, as they say, put a cover on it, make a couple tweaks and put a cover on it and go out tomorrow.
