Danica Patrick & JR Motorsports Continue Talks

Is Danica Patrick coming to NASCAR? Not Yet, but talks continue between the IndyCar driver and Dale Earbhardt's company, JR Motorsports. Patrick reportedly has discontinued talks with Michael Waltrip Racing, as well as, Kevin Harvick, Inc. Drivers like Earnhardt, Carl Edwards and others think Patrick's move to stock cars would be good for the sport. They feel the fans would be excited about it, and the new sponsors she would bring with her would be a benefit for all of NASCAR. Keep in mind that it was reported earlier that she recently signed a new three year deal with the Indy Car group of Andretti Green Racing. However, since the IndyCar series is so much shorter than the NASCAR circuit, it is very possible she could race both. Also, she would begin her stock car career on the Nationwide series, as opposed to the Sprint Cup circuit. Patrick is the only woman to win an IndyCar race, making her that much more appealing to NASCAR.
