MARTINSVILLE RECORD: Will be making her debut.

LOOKING AHEAD: Patrick said she is "actually really excited about Martinsville," the smallest and slowest track on the Sprint Cup Series. "I like the little short tracks," adds Patrick. "They're fun. We went testing out at Little Rock (Rockingham, NC) and got a feel for a track like Martinsville. I thought we actually make some really big gains that day. I had no idea that a woman had not competed at Martinsville (in Cup)."

LOOKING BACK: It was another long afternoon for Patrick as she finished 26th at Auto Club Speedway.

ETC.: On Monday, Patrick participated in the 135th White House Easter Egg Roll and read Dr. Seuss' "Go Dog Go" to a few young children. "It was an amazing experience," said Patrick. "It's such an honor to get to go to The White House and I really enjoyed it. I love kids and they're so much fun to be around, and it's pretty flattering when they tell you that you're their role model or hero. It's really humbling."
