Patrick's experience an asset at Road America


ELKHART LAKE, Wis. (AP) -- For Danica Patrick, the fire-resistant shoe might finally be on the other foot.

   Still relatively early in her transition to NASCAR, Patrick isn't used to having any kind of experience advantage over the rest of the Nationwide Series field. But she thinks things will be different Saturday at Road America, a scenic four-mile road course that winds through central Wisconsin.

   While road-course racing wasn't Patrick's favorite thing to do during her time in the IndyCar Series she does have more experience at it than many drivers who came up racing stock cars. She says, "Now I come to a road course and I'm like, `Yeah, all right. Let's do this."'
