Danica Double Time

Word around the garages is it’s only a matter of time until Danica Patrick is announced as a new team member of JR Motorsports. JR Motorsports is the Nationwide Series operation owned by none other than Dale Earnhardt Jr. It has been reported Patrick will sign a two-year contract and will race in as many Nationwide Series events as possible since she is still racing full-time in the Indy Racing League. The partnership should make its track debut next February at historic Daytona Speedway. This is a very smart move by Little E and NASCAR to bring Danica Patrick into the fold. She will sell major merchandise and will bring more eyeballs to a sport that has been dwindling in viewership in the last few years.
