Recommendation: What was really a very good effort for the JR Motorsports driver ended up in disappointment at Elkhart Lake on Saturday. Patrick raced in the Top 5 the entire event and even led for a few brief moments, but the richly-deserved Top-5 finish didn't materialize. While running fourth on the final lap Patrick was bumped from behind by Jacques Villeneuve in turn 5 and it sent her sliding into the gravel trap. Patrick was able to drive out but lost several spots coming to the finish. It would have been her first Top 5 of the season, but was instead her sixth Top-15 finish of 2012.
