Danica on Her Way to Victory

Motegi, Japan

By working closely with her pit crew and crew chief, Danica ran a smarter race than any of her competitors, taking on fuel which put her out of the expected pit stop rotation. When her fellow racers all had to duck into the pits for fuel with less than 10 laps to go, Patrick was able to stay on the track and take the win, just like two-time NASCAR defending series champion Jimmy Johnson did a couple of weeks ago.
