DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) - Danica Patrick will pull double duty at Daytona International Speedway.
Patrick will drive in the second-tier Nationwide Series season opener the day before the Daytona 500, which is scheduled for Feb. 23.
The former IndyCar star and current Stewart-Haas Racing driver will run a third entry for Turner Scott Motorsports. A rookie in the Sprint Cup Series last season, Patrick also drove two Nationwide races for Turner Scott. She led five laps at Daytona last February before an electrical problem ended her day. She crashed at Talladega in May.
Patrick will drive the No. 30 Chevrolet Camaro, which is sponsored by the Florida Lottery.
Patrick made her Nationwide debut at Daytona in 2010. She has raced in 60 Nationwide events, including a full season in 2012.
