She was seventh in NW practice, she starts 40th in the 600. I think she could get a top five in the NW race, more then likely a top ten. As for Cup she'll finish around 25th t0 30th.

I loved her attitude about Darlington. She said that it is hard to be happy about finishing 31st and six laps down. But she is glad that she was able to finish.

That that time of day, that was a whale of a lap.

Driving the Cup car is really helping her. It is making her see that the nationwide car isn't so bad compared to the high powered and lacking grip Cup cars.

13th is a solid finish. I thought she could have done better, but her car just got too tight after the run went on it seemed like.

I wonder how she will do in the 600? Hopefully a top 25.

Not too far off, 30th... Can't gripe about only being 5 spots behind Tony :roll:

She ran a lot of laps this weekend, you have to give her credit for that. And with the heat both Saturday and Sunday, I think that's an accomplishment in itself!

I know right...

She did a good job overall. But she needs to do better then getting lapped more then twice (in the 600's case 3 times). But I like how much she improves from start to finish. She was all over the place during the first half of the race, she looked out of control. Then during the second half she gets used to car, they make adjustments, and she can run her line. There have been so many green flag runs in the races she has been in that she has had no opportunity to really adjust on her car. And SHR is off right now so she is at a bit of a disadvantage.

I thought she ran a better race at Darlington to be honest. But considering she ran 900 miles in two days which is a first for her, she did a good job.
