DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) - Danica Patrick's season hasn't even started, and the biggest thing everybody wants to know is what she'll do next year.
Going into Saturday's NASCAR Nationwide Series opener at Daytona International Speedway, Patrick says she doesn't know her plans for 2012 and beyond. She acknowledges her contracts in both NASCAR and IndyCar are up at the end of this season - and presumably, she'll have to choose whether she wants to pursue stock car racing on a full-time basis.
Patrick says she isn't under any pressure and has plenty of time to make a decision. Still, improving her performance in Nationwide after a so-so 2010 season in stock cars could attract better offers from sponsors and teams for next season.
