INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - JR Motorsports hopes Danica Patrick will stay the course next season.
Team co-owner Kelly Earnhardt-Miller says Patrick has expressed interest in running again in the Nationwide Series and that the team is trying to finalize sponsorship and a driver for the No. 7 car. Earnhardt-Miller spoke just before Patrick started practicing for Saturday's Indy 250.
Patrick is familiar with the historic 2.5-mile oval from her days as an IndyCar driver and has grown accustomed to all the questions regarding her future.
She's been running part-time this season in the Sprint Cup Series and full-time in Nationwide.
Earnhardt-Miller says a best-case scenario would be keeping Cole Whitt in the No. 88 car, while putting Patrick, Dale Earnhardt Jr. and others split time in a fully-funded No. 7 car.
