Danica Patrick discards rumours linking move to stock car racing – NASCAR news
Andretti Motorsports IndyCar Series driver Danica Patrick has denied rumours linking a move to stock car racing and said that she was not sure about her decision for the upcoming 2012 season.
It was being speculated that Patrick was making some plans to make the shift to NASCAR Sprint Cup Series as a full-time stock car racer. Comparatively she has been more successful in the IndyCar Series than her NASCAR Camping World Truck Series career.
Patrick said, “There have not been decisions made. I don’t know what I’m going to do yet. I’ll let you all know when I can and when the time is right. But it’s a long ways away from where we are now.”
The most preferable move for Patrick is to stick to her Nationwide Series team JR Motorsports. She is already in a contract with JR Motorsports team to participate in a few races in the series. So far, she has featured in four races while she will
feature in eight more.
Owner of JR Motorsports, Dale Earnhardt Jr. said, “We’ll just see what she decides to do. I think she wants to have more success and doing it all the time would be a good move. She just has to choose what she wants to do. What is right for her. What
she thinks she will be happy doing. Just make the right choice for herself that is what is important.”
The plan for Danica Patrick is to run a complete 2012 season of the Nationwide Series with her no. 7 Go Daddy Chevrolet. On the other hand, she will be running in selected races with Stewart-Haas Racing while preparing for a complete Cup season in
Danica Patrick has also been advised by her fellow IndyCar drivers to shift for a full season which will help her with consistency. Her shift has also gathered support form NASCAR Series drivers, which will help both Patrick and NASCAR to improve the
image and viewership.
The praise has helped her to fasten the process to learn the tricks of stock car racing which shows in the running season. Her fourth place finish at the Las Vegas event was the best race finish by a female in the series and first ever top-five for a woman
racer since 1949.
