Danica Patrick Finally Makes it Official
Danica Patrick has finally made her move to the NASCAR Nationwide Series full time official today.
In what she and GoDaddy CEO Bob Parsons called the "worst kept secret in all of sports," Patrick formally announced her move to NASCAR at GoDaddy's offices in Scottsdale, Arizona. As was previously reported by ESPN she will run the Nationwide Series full time in 2012 for JR Motorsports, and will run 8-10 Sprint Cup Series races for Stewart-Haas Racing.
There has not been an official decision on whether Patrick will make her Sprint Cup debut in the 2012 Daytona 500 as had been reported by the Charlotte Observer.
Patrick and Parsons both said that running the 2012 Daytona 500 is "possible," but didn't comment any further.
Patrick currently sits 12th in the IndyCar series points standings with five races left before the season concludes on October 16th at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.
Parsons also said that there will be an announcement tomorrow about GoDaddy's future participation in the IndyCar Series without Patrick.
