I fell asleep after the second stage.
Did she finish clean or did she get "The Lady in Black" stripe :?:

She finished clean...

Stage 1 Recap (Laps 1-100):

Danica Patrick started 33rd and finished 26th.
The No. 10 Ford Credit Ford Fusion team ran as high as 25th, but Patrick noted the car was “tight in the center and loose off” throughout Stage 1. She went a lap down to the leader at lap 80.
The team pitted at laps 18, 42 and 104 for tires and fuel. On the third stop, the team also added tape to the grille.

Stage 2 Recap (Laps 101-200):

Started 25th and finished 27th.
When the caution flag waved at lap 125, crew chief Billy Scott called for the team to take the wave-around to get back on the lead lap. Patrick once again went a lap down to the leader during the subsequent long, green-flag run.
Patrick went a second lap down to the leader when the team pitted under green-flag conditions for tires and fuel at lap 154. The caution flag waved on the following lap, and Patrick was able to take the wave-around when all of teams on the lead lap pitted.
Patrick wasn’t able to make up any ground in the closing laps of Stage 2, and the No. 10 Ford Credit Ford team finished 27th, two laps down to the leader. The team pitted between stages for tires and fuel and added more tape to the grille.

Final Stage Recap (Laps 201-367):

Started 27th and finished 26th.
Patrick continued to battle with an ill-handling racecar in the final stage of the race. She raced as high as 25th before taking the checkered flag in the 26th position, scored four laps down to the leader.
The No. 10 Ford Credit Ford team pitted at laps 250, 291 and 327 for tires, fuel and adjustments.

Really great looking car - certainly one of my favorites although I like the Rusty Wallace M.G.D. car best...
"Pick it up, Rusty...

However, in a week-end dedicated to legends and accomplishments leave it to Danica to "throw back" to herself!?!
