BRISTOL, Tenn. (AP) - Tony Stewart would like to run three full Sprint Cup teams next season regardless of how many races Danica Patrick enters.
Patrick is scheduled to run eight to 10 Cup races for Stewart-Haas Racing. Stewart and Ryan Newman drive currently drive SHR's two entries.
Stewart says he'd like a third car to run even when Patrick isn't driving. He says it's in the best interest of the team to concentrate on a full program.
Stewart is not discussing which races Patrick will run in 2012, and insisted her schedule has not been completed. He did say that SHR has been working on adding employees to field a third car.
Stewart will have plenty of driver options for when Patrick is not in the car, most notably Mark Martin.
