LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) – Danica Patrick finished 31st  in the Nationwide Series race today.

One of Patrick's goals was to simply finish a race, and she did just that at California on Saturday, though she was far from the leader pack.

Patrick started the race 36th, and would end up three laps off pace. She was also penalized for speeding in pit row.

The day belonged to Kyle Busch, who narrowly edged out Greg Biffle by 0.051 seconds to win the race. Brad Keselowski finished in third.
