Patrick, who will be taking a break from NASCAR after this weekend to concentrate on IndyCar racing, said she is getting more comfortable in her No. 7 GoDaddy.com Chevrolet. Patrick was 23rd fastest in Friday’s first practice and slipped to 25th in the final practice.

“We had a better day out there in the GoDaddy car than we did last weekend – it was a little bit of a struggle at Fontana,” she said. “I think that (crew chief Tony Eury Jr.) is just starting to learn my style and the things that I need when I arrive at a track for the very first time to give me confidence and help me drive the car into the corner hard.

As far as the media attention she has been receiving, Patrick called it “mildly superficial” and said she is not taking it too seriously.

“I’m grateful for it now,” she said. “It’s great for the sport, it’s great for me and it’s great for the sponsors. I am having fun while I’m doing it but you just can’t get too addicted to it because there’s the other side of it where it goes away.”
