Danica Patrick Makes History in Vegas, Finishes 4th

Almirola Brings Taxslayer.com Chevy Home In 15th

LAS VEGAS, (March 5, 2011) –  Danica Patrick and the No. 7 Go Daddy team raced its way into the record books and also earned the best finish of JR Motorsports’ two-car tandem in Saturday’s Sam’s Town 300 at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.  Patrick finished in fourth position to become the highest finishing female in any NASCAR national touring series race.  For the second consecutive week, Aric Almirola and the No. 88 crew wrestled a loose condition throughout the race.  The team remedied some of the issues after its final stop, but with only a handful of laps remaining Almirola ran out of time to improve his positioning, ending the day in 15th.  In a dramatic finish, Brad Keselowski cut a tire shortly after taking the white flag as the race leader.  His misfortune handed the win to NASCAR veteran Mark Martin.  Martin was followed to the stripe by Justin Allgaier with Keselowski finishing third. Patrick and Trevor Bayne rounded out the top-five finishers.

JRM Teams Overcome Hurdles; Earn Top-20 Finishes

AVONDALE, Ariz. (Feb. 26, 2011) –  Saturday’s Bashas’ Supermarkets 200 at Phoenix International Raceway was  full of challenges for the JR Motorsports teams of Aric Almirola and Danica Patrick.  Debuting the TaxSlayer.com paint scheme on the No. 88 Chevrolet, Almirola twice fell a lap down to the leaders and twice rebounded to regain lead lap status en route to a 13th-place finish.  Danica Patrick and the No. 7 Go Daddy team pieced together a solid race for the second straight week.  Patrick avoided trouble, posted solid lap times, and capped the day with a 17th-place finish.  Kyle Busch led every lap of the 200-lap race, marking the first time a driver in a national series has led wire-to-wire since July 4, 2003, when Dale Earnhardt Jr. led all 100 laps in the Nationwide Series race at Daytona. Carl Edwards attempted to spoil Busch’s dominating performance but came up short in the closing laps.  Kevin Harvick, Ryan Newman and Reed Sorenson rounded out the top-five finishers.
