Hi RasputinLives ....... Patrick certainly carved out her reputation on ovals, probably because by the time the fans started to take notice that's where most of her racing was taking place. To achieve what she has takes guts and talent and she deserves acknowledgment for her successes I'm sure you'd agree. To be fair to her, she raced Formula Ford with reasonable results in the UK finishing 2nd in the Formula Ford Festival, the best result ever by an American driver. She also ran consistently in the top three in Formula Atlantic which is run exclusively on road courses. I stand to be corrected but I don't believe they ran on Ovals in Formula Atlantic so given the opportunity I'm sure she'd adapt and learn very quickly. The question is, would she want to.
