Daytona Beach, Florida - Danica Patrick has won the pole for the season-opening Nationwide Series race at Daytona, finishing just ahead of defending Daytona 500 winner Trevor Bayne. She is the first woman to secure the top qualifying spot in NASCAR's second-tier series since Shawna Robinson at Atlanta in March 1994.

Patrick moved to NASCAR full time this season and is scheduled to drive 10 Sprint Cup races for Stewart-Haas Racing and run every Nationwide race for JR Motorsports.
