Danica Patrick to stop racing after next year's Indianapolis 500

Danica Patrick to stop racing after next year's Indianapolis 500

After regaining her composure, Patrick said she would still race next season's Daytona 500 and the Indianapolis 500, an IndyCar Series event.

It was since widely speculated that Patrick may perhaps be retiring from her racing career since her chances of finding another full-time ride in the Cup Series were slim. "After Indy, that's the end".

Danica Patrick, driver of the #10 Aspen Dental Ford, stands on the grid during qualifying for the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series I Love NY 355 at The Glen at Watkins Glen International on August 6, 2017 in Watkins Glen, New York. She can't go back to Stewart-Haas Racing, her soon-to-be-ex-team, since that organization will already be fielding four cars at the 2018 Daytona 500.

Dem Reads Trump Tweets During Sessions Hearing
Sessions also suggested all of his answers before Congress were answered to the best of his recollection. Sessions previously testified at a similar hearing before the Senate Judiciary Committee in October.

"I'm really excited, I actually have really something exciting to tell you", Patrick said as she wiped away tears.

Patrick said it took her many months to come to the realization her career is all but over.

Patrick didn't reveal which teams she would drive for in 2018 but "nothing's final yet". Her contract concludes after the season finale on Sunday at Homestead-Miami Speedway. Her best finish in the standings was 5th, which she pulled off in the 2009 season. But I definitely was faced with situations at the beginning of the year that I had never faced before. Before her move to stock cars, Patrick saw tons of success in IndyCar, becoming the first woman to win a race and being named the most popular driver from 2005-10. If I don't feel like I can run better than where I am, then I don't want to do it.
