Danica Patrick scores her best Nationwide finish at Chicagoland

No, Danica Patrick didn't finish on the lead lap, but her 24th place finish in Friday night's Nationwide race at Chicagoland wasn't a total failure by any means.


Patrick was able to stay out of trouble -- a big achievement given how the first four races went -- and did seem to get more comfortable as the race went on. It wasn't a giant step -- no matter what anyone else says -- but it was certainly a move forward.

However, Patrick's sponsor GoDaddy.com lost the web host sponsor battle. Joe Nemechek recently picked up a five race deal from HostGator.com, who promised that anyone that switched from GoDaddy to HostGator on Friday would get a year's worth of web hosting for free if Nemechek beat Patrick Friday night. Nemechek finished 15th.
