Patrick tenth on first day at Long Beach.

LONG BEACH, CA . . ..Team Rahal's Argent Mortgage Company driver, Danica Patrick, took ninth on the provisional grid for Sunday's Argent Mortgage Toyota Atlantic Championship race. Patrick, posted her fast lap of 90.065 mph on her twentieth and final qualifying lap

"The car wasn't bad from an overall starting point, but we went the wrong way on our changes and we weren't able to progress on our speed as much as we could have. The track is coming in pretty nicely which is great for a street course. We have some changes we need to make for tomorrow and if the weather holds off I think we can move up on the grid."

Patrick qualified fifth and finished third in the season opener at Monterrey Mexico. She became the first female driver in the thirty-year history of the Toyota Atlantic Championship to finish on the podium.

Qualifying for Sunday's Argent Mortgage Company Toyota Atlantic Grand Prix of Long Beach will resume tomorrow afternoon on the streets of Long Beach, CA.
