Danica to try the Tony Stewart Route

Danica Patrick announced (officially she hasn’t said anything) through Tony Stewart that she “absolutely wants to do NASCAR”. This comes as a surprise to some of the IndyCar Fans, as she was supposed to be leaning toward staying in the IRL full time. The full time IndyCar plan is still in tack, but with more of a Stewart type flavor. Tony ran the IndyCar schedule back in 1998 (only around 10 races at the time) with a full-time ride from Joe Gibbs in the Busch Series (now Nationwide). This lead to a full time ride in 1999 with the formely Winston Cup Series and Joe Gibbs Racing. This was the end of Tony Stewarts IndyCar career as he only ran two more IRL races, the 1999 and 2001 Indy 500. Danica seems to want to follow a similar path.

IndyCarGarage wants to hear your thoughts and predications for Danica as she embarks on one of the most important decisions of her career.

Hopefully she can help destroy NASCRAP just like she did for the Scab 500. When I see her TV commercial with a female driver and a male pit crew in bikini tops, I turn off the TV. I bet I'm not the only one. NASCRAP speactators are down almost 50%, so nobody cares. Scab 500 and NASCRAP are an embarassment and disgrace to USA. Over & out!
