Danica Patrick to Race Full-time With NASCAR in 2012

Danica Patrick to Race Full-time With NASCAR in 2012

Danica Patrick, highest-finishing female in a NASCAR national series event, announced Aug. 25 she will move full-time in 2012 to NASCAR's Nationwide Series and make her debut in NASCAR's Sprint Cup series from previously racing full time in the IndyCar Series.


Danica Patrick gives a thumbs-up at a news conference Thursday in Scottsdale, Ariz., where she announced she's leaving IndyCar in 2012 to run a full Nationwide schedule with JR Motorsports and up to 10 Sprint Cup races for Stewart-Haas Racing. (AP | Paul Connors)

Danica Patrick said Thursday her full-time jump to NASCAR in 2012 was the "worst-kept secret in the world."

But the popular driver has decided to keep at least one announcement under wraps -- her plans for NASCAR's richest race, the 2012 Daytona 500.

"That's one of the things we have not completely decided yet," Patrick said when asked about competing in February's Great American Race at Daytona International Speedway.

Patrick -- along with Bob Parsons, the CEO for her sponsor GoDaddy -- did, however, announce at a video news conference in Phoenix that she plans to run a full NASCAR Nationwide Series schedule with JR Motorsports, co-owned by Dale Earnhardt Jr., and a handful of Sprint Cup Series events with Stewart-Haas Racing, co-owned by Tony Stewart.

When The News-Journal asked about the 500, Patrick had little to say before deferring to Parsons.

"I don't know. 'What do you think, Bob?' " responded the 29-year-old, dressed in her black, tight GoDaddy attire.

"I think there's a possibility," Parsons said with a big smile.

Daytona International Speedway president Joie Chitwood III sounded a bit disappointed Patrick did not announce her Daytona 500 intentions.

"I hope as they analyze the eight to 10 events she runs on the Sprint Cup side, I can't imagine that Daytona would not be considered favorably on that list," Chitwood said in a phone interview. "I hope Daytona is one of those select races."

Chances are it will be. All indications point toward Patrick attempting to qualify for the 500, which paid $268,550 to the last-place finisher in February.

She'll already be in town for the Nationwide race, which is scheduled one day before the 500.

And, The Charlotte Observer reported Wednesday -- citing multiple unnamed sources -- that Patrick would enter the 500.

Patrick also said she enjoys racing on the Speedway's 2.5-mile tri-oval.

"I have definitely enjoyed going to Daytona, that's for sure," Patrick said. "I've done four races there. I really like it. I thought I had a great shot to win it at the end of the (Nationwide) race in July."

Patrick has run a limited number of Nationwide Series races with JR Motorsports since 2010.

In the July race at Daytona, she led 13 laps -- with Stewart pushing her to the front -- late in the race before crashing out on the last lap, finishing 10th.

There is speculation Patrick may use the Sprint Cup Series January test days at Daytona, officially called Preseason Thunder, to get a feel for the Cup stock cars.

For that much money, id try n qualify my station wagon if they would let me.

a little bump drafting will pull that wagon up to about 160+. Put some tape on the grill for a few more hp, you are there. I will be honored to work in your pit.

based on your avi, I have the attire already.

She absolutely sucks. She is completely overrated, and lucked into her one and only win. There are other women who are FAR more talented but don't get anywhere near as many opportunities because they don't look as good in a Bikini. I am very happy she is gone as now I can finally watch IndyCar racing without a last place Danica update.

She used a good fuel strategy (by her team) and some pitstop luck to place 4th at Indy, and win at Motegi, and automatically its like she parted the seas and turned water to wine.

Dude Danica does really well if she isn't having car problems which is OFTEN. You always here her pit on the radio telling her of issues on her car slowing her down, thats why she jumped teams in Indy, to get a better car.

I love Danica, and alot of other racers, she did the best she could with what she had. Plus her team didn't have near the funding of other teams.

No... that is Danica berating her team for her own lack of talent. She is downright abusive to her team, I would have hit her with a wrench by now. There are crew members who have swapped out of her team because they can't stand her, its never her fault always someone elses. Buddy Rice WON the Indy 500 in the same car she had. For 2007 she went to AGR and proceeded to suck wind with the same team that brought Dario Franchitti to the 2007 Indy 500 win and 2007 Championship. AGR has gone so far as swap cars, crewchiefs, and crews for her to put her with the teams that ran winning drivers (Franchitti, Kanaan) to championship runs, and she STILL bitches and complains that the car is screwed up, meanwhile her teammates go out and win races. Look at this season where journeyman teammate Ryan Hunter Rey has literally slapped her all over the track.

She even admits she has nothing for anybody on road courses, which is where she was brought up. She did 2 years in Toyota Atlantic which is a spec car series and couldn't win, the next year Katherine Legge came in and won 3 races in her first year. She should be in IndyCar right now but doesn't look as cute in a bikini.

In 6 years driving in IndyCar she has ONE win driven specifically by the fact she had a lucky fuel strategy. Even her overrated teammate Marco Andretti has 2 wins that he actually drove to win, not pitstop strategied his way into.

The only reason shes lasted as long as she has is because shes a good looking woman and she has just enough talent to run mid pack, bring the car home in one piece, and not kill anyone (unlike Milka Duno who has no business on a bicycle let alone a race car). With results like she has if she was a man she would be just another has been that we talk about like "hey remember that guy, wonder what hes up to these days".

Problem is shes a girl, which I mean by that is they usually don't have that nut job gene that will put your life on the line for every race.

Maybe when she find outs you can take a heck of a beating in a full cage car and your not gonna die, she will drive more on the edge.

But in them Indy cars, she was scare shietless to wreck it and held back always, rather then going for it.
