Danica Patrick led laps 24 through 26 of Sunday's Mid-Ohio 200 IndyCar race. But that was about it for good news.
Patrick finished 21st, her short-lived run at the front coming only because she put off her first pit stop. After that, she didn't catch any breaks on yellow flags and couldn't keep up with the top cars.
The fan favorite started 23rd.
"It was a tough day for the GoDaddy.com car," she said. "A couple of the yellows didn't work in our favor, and we just didn't quite have the speed to make up lost opportunities.
"It's so difficult to pass on this track, and you need that speed from the start."
