PLAYERS: Danica Patrick
Danica Patrick is back in the Chicago area and looking forward to another Sprint Cup race at what is essentially her home track. Patrick grew up in Roscoe, about 116 miles from Chicagoland Speedway.

Patrick has raced nine times at Chicagoland - six times on the IndyCar Series. She finished 10th in a Nationwide race at the track in June 2011. Patrick says she loves being in the Chicago area and has plenty of people coming out to the track - including some relatives from Canada.
