Danica Patrick qualifies in pole position for the 2013 Daytona 500
Danica Patrick became the first woman to win a NASCAR pole position after she set the fastest speed during the qualifying for the Daytona 500.
“You can do anything you want to do, and gender doesn’t matter. Now I’m probably gonna grab some beers,” Patrick said on Saturday. “Anybody else here that still believes all women are awful drivers?”
Patrick reached speeds of 196.434, the fastest speed for the event since 1990.
