Danica Patrick Mulling Indy 500, Daytona 500 Runs In 2018 — NASCAR Rumors

Danica Patrick done as a full-time driver, will drive Daytona 500 and Indy 500 in 2018

Patrick steps away from full-time competition after five full-time seasons in the Cup Series.

Danica Patrick said Friday that the 2017 season would be her final season as a full-time driver. She competed in the Indy 500 from 2005 through 2011, when she moved full time to NASCAR. "I think it's gonna be a great way to cap (my racing career) off". However, she couldn't shake the idea of ending it back at one of the races that catapulted her to fame: the Indianapolis 500.

Patrick began racing in NASCAR on a part-time basis in 2010 with much fanfare after becoming the highest-finishing female driver in the Indianapolis 500 (third, 2009) and the first to win an IndyCar race.

Patrick is the only woman to have led laps in both the Daytona 500 and the Indianapolis 500. "I'm excited for the next phase, trust me". I'd been going through this in my head and kept asking myself, "How am I going to get the words out and say it's over?"

But Patrick's on-track struggles in recent years have caused her star power to diminish, and she's also struggled to attract the necessary sponsorship to remain associated with top-tier teams.

While Patrick's personal spokesperson, Haley Moore, and NBC Sports declined to comment to USA Today, Patrick plans to meet with the media after the 3 p.m. ET race Sunday to officially announce her plans.

But this seems right, and this seems good..

Patrick plans to focus on her other ventures after her retirement from driving, which include a winery, a fitness program and an athletic wear line.
