The past two years, Danica Patrick had been trying to learn how to drive the stock cars of NASCAR with barely any success.

She said it was hard to do both series, the IRL and NASCAR at the same time.

In 2012, she has no more excuses in making the transition, as she will be driving in NASCAR fulltime.

The former IndyCar star will be competing in the Nationwide series fulltime for JR Motorsports.

She’ll also be racing 10 Sprint Cup events for Stewart-Haas Racing.

Her teammate in the Nationwide Series will be Aric Almirola.

NASCAR and its many drivers are all scrambling to find sponsorships for the 2012 season. It’s tough for for every car to find the funding it needs with the USA economy fluctuating up and down every day. Sponsors will tell one driver that they’re getting out of the racing business to do a whole new rollout for their company. But end up working s deal with another race team.

For instance, Sarah Fisher, owner of Sarah Fisher Racing, who won the IRL race in Kentucky 3 weeks ago, was told by Dollar General that they needed money for a company-wide rollout, then they turnaround and agree to sponsor Joe Gibbs Racing. Dollar General also dumped Turner Motorsports of the Nationwide Series.

Kenseth and his team have used several different sponsors to be able to race such as Affliction-a wild design clothing line and Fluidmaster, a toilet parts manufacturer.

One of those is Matt Kenseth, who is one of the circuit’s top drivers year-in-and-year-out.

Kenseth, a 2003 NASCAR champion is losing his primary sponsor Crown Royal at the end of the 2011 season. With three wins and a chance at the Chase championship, team owner Jack Roush has not had much success in his attempts to find funding for the #17 Ford driven by Kenseth.

The best news for Kenseth, is that Roush Fenway Racing is one of the most successful and wealthy teams in NASCAR, he is not in danger of losing his job. Good drivers are hard to come by.

The Speedway will hold Sprint Cup, Nationwide and NASCAR Camping World Truck Series races June 28-30, 2012.
