Odd choice, bringing Danica into the Sprint Cup after such a short time in Nationwide - she hasn't even won a race in that series yet.
Patrick might not be much of a driver yet (ever?) but she sells a lot of merch and is very popular.

One the one hand, Danica jumping to Cup looks like a huge mistake. During last week's Nationwide race they were talking about Michael Annett saying he feels he needs another year in the NNS and he needs to win some NNS races before he even thinks about driving the 43 in Cup (which has been a rumor). Andy Petree said something like "that's really smart because you can't learn to win at the Cup level," and I was sitting there going "SOMEONE bring up Danica now, please."
OTOH, plenty of NASCAR drivers take to the Cup cars better than the Nationwide cars, and Danica I think is going to be 31 next year, so she might as well get on it. She *has* been doing better in the races the more she's run them in Cup.

Race chase #2 winner: Jimmie Johnson (The earliest he has won in the chase). I also posted the Logano crash in case you did not see. Just goes to show how much safer those cars have gotten. Stats courtesy NASCAR.
