The NASCAR Sprint Cup is on break for Easter Week. Danica Patrick picks her favorite tracks and TV watchers get an added bonus during Talladega's race weekend and Swan Racing's future in doubt.

Pit Row is quiet this week but next week drivers head to Richmond International Raceway. I asked Danica Patrick if she liked short tracks like Richmond.
(Patrick) "I've liked and hated every kind of track there is. They've all been on my love and hate lists."
NASCAR's new qualifying knockout sessions are becoming "must see TV", even for folks like Pocono Raceway President Brandon Igdalsky.
(Igdalsky) "I've honestly never DVR'd qualifying in my life and DVR it now every week, you know and sit there and watch it when I can on a Friday night or Saturday morning when I get a couple of minutes. It is really exciting."
In fact TV ratings are so high for the qualifying sessions, the May 3rd Sprint Cup qualifying session from Talladega will be televised live on network TV.
And officials from Swan Racing issuing a statement that they are struggling to find sponsorship dollars to operate the two car team and are "exploring every available option."
