2016 Panini The National Danica Patrick - Nickelodeon Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 400

Panini usually puts out a couple of card sets tied to The National Sports Collectors Convention (The National for short). This year's set included NASCAR cards, including cards for Danica Patrick. As usual, there are about 65,000 parallels, but so far all I've got is the base card. 

It's got a pretty basic design. I don't really have much to say about it. The front features your usual posed shot with arms crossed, and the back has the door number, another nameplate, and a short description of a race Danica placed 16th in. It is nice to be getting a few cards featuring her Nature's Bakery sponsorship, although I have to admit I miss the old GoDaddy green sometimes. Nature's Bakery does seem like a better sponsor for her now, though.

Today's race was the Nickelodeon-sponsored Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 400 at Chicagoland Speedway. in Joliet, Illinois. Danica drove a special car featuring April O'Neil, one of the Turtles' allies. I lifted the picture from the linked article.

Danica started the TMNT 400 in 25th place, bringing her average start at the track to 26.40. She wasn't able to move up much in the field, finishing in 24th place, slightly worse than her career average 22.80 finish at the track.
