SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (AP) - Danica Patrick has called a Thursday news conference and is expected to announce her 2012 move to NASCAR.
The Associated Press reported earlier this month that Patrick was finalizing a deal to drive fulltime for JR Motorsports in the second-tier Nationwide Series. She was also working on a limited schedule of elite Sprint Cup Series races for Stewart-Haas Racing.
Patrick and GoDaddy.com chairman Bob Parsons will be at Thursday's announcement at company headquarters in Scottsdale, Ariz. An advisory promises Patrick will announce her 2012 plans while ``putting the rumors to rest with the `real story in her own words.'''
Patrick has driven 20 Nationwide races for JR Motorsports over the last two seasons and has five more scheduled this year.
She finished third in the 2009 Indy 500, the highest finish for a woman in open-wheel's most prestigious race.
