Patrick ran as high as 10th during the race, but got penalized after her crew went over the wall too fast on a green-flag pit stop on Lap 157. By Lap 169, Patrick was a lap down.
Then on Lap 184, Patrick and Greg Biffle had contact on the backstretch, which sent Patrick on a long slide through the grass, with her car getting airborne in the process.
"That pit-road penalty really put us in a bad spot at the end of the race," said Patrick, who finished 35th. "I didn’t realize Greg (Biffle) was below me and I tried going low and we made contact. It’s a disappointing way to end the day, but overall, I’m happy with the way my Nature’s Bakery team performed throughout Speedweeks."
