As we discussed the Danica decision in May, today she made it official in an Arizona news conference: Danica Patrick will indeed race full time in NASCAR next season, making the transition from INDY in style.
Danica has been racing NASCAR part time for the past couple of season ( a total of 20 races) and will race full time for JR Motorsports which is co-owned by Dale Earnhardt Jr. But Danica Patrick isn’t stopping there….she’ll also be racing in a handful of NASCAR Sprint series with the Stewart Haas Racing team.
Danica naturally said it was not about the money, in making her decision to switch full time to NASCAR. Nope, who cares about money right? Danica said NASCAR is where her heart is, along with her gut. Though I’m sure her heart will be warmed by the money she’ll continue to make racing and with her Go Daddy sponsorship deal, not to mention her other little sponsors: Tissot, Mattel’s Hot Wheels, Nationwide Insurance, Peak, and Marquis Jet. Have you heard of these little companies?
What we’d like to know though: When is the next Danica Patric photo shoot??
