"Patrick led Larson and Kwasniewski in a pack during qualifying. It was Patrick’s job to navigate traffic and her teammates to follow. “I was coming up to a sea of cars on the backstraightaway and I’m like ‘I have no idea how we’re going to get through this,’ but she picked her way perfectly and got us in the right position and got all three of us a great lap,’’ Kwasniewski said of Patrick.
How did Patrick guide the group? “It was a matter of my spotter saying, “Let me know where you’re going to go, so I can tell them,’ “ Patrick said. “I’m like, I’m going to go ... I have no idea. How about the middle? Luckily the cars kind of parted in front of me and we went through the middle.’’
Kwasniewski, running last in the group, was fastest at 192.078 mph. Larson, running in the middle, was next at 192.074 mph followed by Patrick at 192.033 mph."
BTW--2 drivers penalized for pushing--guess they didn't think the new rules were serious?
