 SONOMA, Calif. (AP) - Ryan Hunter-Reay wished Danica Patrick well and believes his Andretti Autosport teammate will do fine as she makes the jump to the NASCAR circuit.
Hunter-Reay also said Friday that having Patrick race in IndyCar for the past seven years provided a marketing boost but that he is confident the series will do well even without one of its most recognizable drivers.
Patrick announced Thursday that she is leaving open-wheel competition to race a full Nationwide season and a part-time Sprint Cup schedule in 2012.
Speaking before Friday's practice session at Infineon Raceway, Patrick didn't rule out possibly returning to IndyCar to race in the Indianapolis 500.
