Certainly, she's frustrated, but not discouraged.
Patrick is 16th in the points heading into this weekend's Grand Prix of Long Beach, but she's at least making progress on non-ovals. She ran in the top 10 for a while in the season opener at St. Petersburg and last week had a strong run going before a tire gamble failed, dropping her to 17th.
IndyCar's most recognizable star, Patrick is in her second season splitting time between open-wheel racing and NASCAR's Nationwide Series.
