Danica Patrick confirms Indy 500 return in 2018

Danica Patrick confirms Indy 500 return in 2018

"I mean, it's twice the field of Indy cars". Her contract concludes after the season finale on Sunday at Homestead-Miami Speedway.

She attempted to find another ride but there wasn't much interest in a driver who has never won a NASCAR race and stands a disappointing 27th in this season's points standings. Danica Patrick is leaning in that direction as well, but she still has the biggest race in NASCAR and open-wheel racing to run before she does. Period. I was just emotional. "I had never had sponsor issues".

"I'm grateful for all of the opportunities", an emotional Patrick said at a media conference. I don't want to be remembered for the things that didn't go as well. And, there have been times that I could not have been more miserable.

Patrick spent seven years as an IndyCar driver before making the move to NASCAR in 2012.

Price of Football 2017 survey (and where Notts County fit in)
The clubs were also asked to provide the cost of a tea, a pie, a programme and adult and junior-sized replica shirts. Young people surveyed by ComRes were also more likely to bet on football (44 per cent) than play for a team.


She started in go-karts when she was 10, and was a national champion two years later. She won her only IndyCar race in 2008 in Japan and while she won the pole for the Daytona 500 in 2013, she finished eighth.

Her highest finish at the Indy 500 was third in 2009.

But there were times where Patrick became frustrated that she couldn't find the speed to compete with the elite NASCAR racers.

Patrick had been adamant she would never return to IndyCar or the 500, but changed her mind as she realized her competitive options were dwindling. It's 40 cars instead of 20, basically.

Samsung Also CONFIRMS Galaxy A7 2018
A lot of rumors have already started to circulate about the Samsung's upcoming flagship and it's time for the latest one. The 2018 version of the Samsung Galaxy A7 is expected to be equipped with an Infinity display of 6 inches.


"I don't feel like I was necessarily pushed into this".

"I tried every approach I could to figure it out how to make the vehicle go fast". Do I ask for other things? You see me as really (expletive) tough. Kevin Harvick will try to win a second championship in four years for the organization on Sunday, and Stewart said Patrick has been a huge part of the team's success. Nature Bakery, her sponsor, dropped her, cutting the partnership a year sooner than had been arranged.

Despite never winning a race in her Monster Energy Cup Series career, Patrick achieved multiple milestones to cement her place in the sport's history.
