History was set for this year’s Daytona 500 as rookie Danica Patrick becomes the first woman to win a pole for any NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race. Patrick, and four-time champion and two-time Kansas Speedway winner Jeff Gordon will start on the front row for the Daytona 500 on Feb. 24.
Patrick, who competed in both the Kansas Lottery 300 and Hollywood Casino 400 at Kansas Speedway in 2012, won her first career pole in 2005 at Kansas Speedway as a rookie in the IndyCar Series.
Race fans can see Patrick, Gordon and the rest of the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series stars at Kansas Speedway on April 21 in the STP 400.
