DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. — Enough with the snarky comments about Danica Patrick. Sure, she gets more attention than her accomplishments warrant because she’s a pretty face competing in a male-dominated sport. Who knows if she’ll ever be a series champion because, quite frankly, it’s a rare breed that climbs to the top of any sport. Maybe she’s destined to be a middle-of-the-pack racer her entire career, someone who can be counted on for solid results and an occasional win.
