Danica Patrick Indy: NASCAR

Published: August 4, 2011

Danica Patrick Indy: NASCAR, Danica Patrick day as IndyCar driver may not be coming to a complete end after all. Even if it becomes a NASCAR driver full time as planned, it can still take part in the biggest race of all IndyCar. Patrick is in the final stages of an agreement to run a full-time schedule in the Nationwide Series for JR Motorsports and participating in races limited to Sprint Cup Series team owned by Tony Stewart. These talks include a plan to enable it to continue racing in the Indianapolis 500, the Associated Press reported, citing an anonymous source.

JR Motorsports co-owner Kelley Earnhardt said it would be difficult for Patrick to compete for a national championship if it works in the Indianapolis 500, which requires drivers to spend a lot of May at Indianapolis Motor Speedway. NASCAR Nationwide had three races during this time of the year.

Patrick, who finished third at the Indianapolis 500 in 2009, has a career IndyCar victory and is ranked 11th in the standings show. She is winless in 19 career Nationwide races, but JR Motorsports co-owner of Dale Earnhardt Jr. says she is “ahead of the curve” as a NASCAR driver.

“I would like for it to run full time, and I am sure that it is considering, and I think she would enjoy,” said Earnhardt at Indianapolis Motor Speedway. “I am convinced that it is contained there where she is happy with what we do. I think things look positive for us to put something together. ”

Stewart also expressed interest in working with Patrick in the Sprint Cup series.

“Anyone who has a Cup team would have jumped on the availability of the opportunity to do something with it,” said Stewart in May “You’d be crazy not to know of such an offer and an opportunity for her driving a race car for you. “
