KANNAPOLIS, North Carolina (Sept. 5, 2017) - As teams head to the final race before the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series playoffs, all eyes will be on Saturday night's Federated Auto Parts 400 at Richmond (Va.) Raceway as teams vie for the remaining three spots in the 16-driver playoff field.
So far, 13 drivers have locked themselves into the playoffs by securing a win. The remaining three spots are currently held by drivers via their position in the point standings but, with one race to go before the start of the playoffs, there are other drivers and teams who can capitalize on one last opportunity to race their way in with a victory.
Danica Patrick and the #10 Warrior by Danica/HSN.com Ford Fusion team for Stewart-Haas Racing (SHR) will be one of the groups looking to play the spoiler role and race their way into the NASCAR playoff field Saturday night.
Patrick has nine NASCAR Cup Series starts at Richmond and her best finish to date was a 15th-place result earned in September 2016. In three NASCAR Xfinity Series starts at Richmond, she finished a career-best 18th in September 2011.
In addition to her stock car experience at the track, Patrick also competed in five IndyCar Series events at Richmond. She earned a fifth-place finish at the .75-mile oval in June 2009, which is the best of her four IndyCar top-10s at the track.
As Patrick and the #10 team enter Saturday's race with one more shot at making the playoffs, her #10 Ford will feature the branding of her Warrior by Danica Patrick clothing line and HSN.com.
While Patrick is used to the fast-paced lifestyle of a professional racecar driver, off the track she enjoys a fashionable and fitness-oriented way of life. Warrior by Danica Patrick is a lifestyle collection with a mix of active, "athleisure" and casual wear. Function, fashion and comfort is what the brand stands for with attention to detail and shape. The HSN collection, which launched in January 2017, is available at HSN.com in sizes XS to 3X and items range in price from $24.90 for Leopard Foil Print Gloves to $89.90 for the Faux Leather Jacket with Hood.
With Warrior by Danica Patrick and HSN.com on the #10 Ford this weekend at Richmond, Patrick and her team will be in search of a win Saturday night as they have one last chance at making the 2017 NASCAR Cup Series playoff field.
