4-5, June 2010, Texas Motor Speedway, Fort Worth, Texas:

Team Penske Driver Ryan Briscoe  was able to keep the lead as Danica Patrick of Andretti Autosport came in a close second at the 2010 Firestone 550k. Danica actually took the lead late in the race but her lead was short lived as Briscoe was able to get back in front with an outside move.


June 4 – Practice

A HOT day on the track as the weather channel said it was 96 outside, of course they didn’t factor in how hot it was with the heat coming off the track.

Drama

Late in the race Danica and Ryan Briscoe battled for first and Danica eventually took over the lead. However Briscoe took back the lead on lap 193 and was able to keep the lead to finish first. Patrick, who started eighth finished second and posted her best finish since the won back in 2008 in Japan.
