Brooke Coleman, a 10-year-old NASCAR fan from Harrisonburg, had it all!

Danica Patrick tee shirt.

Danica earrings.

Her mission outside Martinsville Speedway Friday was to get Danica Patrick's autograph.

"The reason I really like her is that I really think she's great driving with a whole bunch of boys," Brooke said.

She did see Danica!

The godaddy.com driver waved as she rode by in her golf cart.

She didn't stop.

But, to young fans like Brooke, it didn't matter.

Brooke's mother, Dawn Coleman, said it didn't really matter where Patrick finished on Sunday as well.

She said it was all about her being out there.

She said it was a great lesson for Brooke.

Danica Patrick qualified 32nd for Sunday's race.
