Danica Patrick's transition to NASCAR hasn't been an easy one.

Finishing in the middle-to-lower of the pack in most races, the former IndyCar racer is still trying to find her groove in stock cars.

Scott Paddock joined SportsTalk Live on Wednesday to talk about her season struggles.

"She would probably be the first to admit that she had higher expectations," Paddock said. "There's certainly going to be a learning curve as you transition from the open wheel race cars to the stock cars, and she's in good equipment. This Stewart-Haas race team, you can't blame it on the equipment, it's a well-resourced team. I think you would have expected a little bit more of a progression. ... I think she'd probably be her biggest critic.

"But she's a remarkable ambassador to the sport and I think I've gone on record before that what she's doing is nothing short of remarkable competition with the men without any competitive advantage whatsoever."
