Despite critics and no wins, Danica Patrick gets ready for second NASCAR season

Danica Patrick (

Danica Patrick stands out at the racetrack. As a woman, she always has since beginning racing go-karts at age 10 in 1992.

She hasn’t won very much since driving on the IndyCar and NASCAR circuit.

2014 is upon us and the 31-year-old Patrick, a native of Wisconsin, is beginning her second season driving on the NASCAR Sprint Cup circuit.

This week she is preparing for the famous Daytona 500

In 2013, she became the first woman to win the Daytona 500 pole and finished a very respectable eighth.

That finish was the highest of her rookie season for Stewart-Haas Racing. She averaged finishing 26th for the season and was 27th in points.

No one ever expects her to win a Sprint Cup race, especially the legendary Richard Petty.

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.

Danica Patrick has been guaranteed a spot in the upcoming Daytona 500 race due to a partnership with Tommy Baldwin Racing.

She will drive the #10 Chevrolet in 10 Sprint Cup Series races in 2012. The # 10 car will start the season with the points Dave Blaney earned in 2011 in the number-36 car.

Teams can transfer or sell points to another team if they want and Tony Stewart of Stewart-Haas Racing acquired them for Patrick to run in the Daytona 500 race which will take place on February 26. It is the season-opening race for NASCAR.

With Blaney finishing 33rd in points in 2011, his car was guaranteed a spot in the starting field in the first five races of this season.

When Patrick is not racing, the #10 car will be driven by David Reutimann in 26 races.

Danica Patrick has officially ended years of speculation and has made the decision to jump to NASCAR.

Patrick announced last week that she is leaving IndyCar in 2012 to run a full schedule in the Nationwide Series with JR Motorsports.

The agreement also allows her to drive up to 10 Sprint Cup races for Stewart-Haas Racing.

Patrick has said that she will run the Indianapolis 500 in 2012.

Patrick has driven 20 races for JR Motorsports the last two years and has five more scheduled before the 2011 season ends.

Racing’s most popular female driver became the first woman to win an Indycar race when she won in Japan at Twin Ring Motegi in 2008.
