Danica Patrick has chosen the slow road to success in the NASCAR Nationwide Series.
As hardcore fans and the media have attempted to emphasize her shortcomings on the NASCAR Nationwide circuit, Patrick has focused on each race with one thought in mind: Learn everything she can in the short time she has at each track.
Patrick is once again running a limited schedule in NASCAR Nationwide, and her IndyCar schedule is going to limit her ability to practice and learn once her IRL season begins.
Patrick has conquered an intermediate track. Las Vegas Motor Speedway is a mile-and-a-half track that is very similar to Atlanta and Texas, and now she will need to work on learning the more demanding tracks.
