WHEN IS DANICA’S FIRST RACE?

Danica Patrick reportedly will make her NASCAR Nationwide Series debut wearing only a GoDaddy.com bikini at Auto Club Speedway in Fontana, Calif., on Feb. 20 at the Stater Bros. 300. The Los Angeles Daily News says it got the information from "informed sources" – as opposed to the other kind. Fontana is a good choice for Patrick’s first race. It is not the most challenging track on the circuit. It is close to Patrick’s home in Phoenix. And it is located on the fringe of the country’s second-largest media market. Following on the heels of the Feb. 14 Daytona 500, NASCAR can expect to enjoy two solid weeks of major media attention before fading into obscurity to kick off the season.
