 FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) - Danica Patrick will pay tribute to the memory of two-time Indianapolis 500 champion Dan Wheldon with a special paint scheme on the hood of her NASCAR Nationwide Series car at Texas.
Patrick, who is moving full time to NASCAR next season, is racing Saturday for the first time since the IndyCar Series finale at Las Vegas three weeks ago. That was when Wheldon was killed in a fiery 15-car crash.
The hood of Patrick's No. 7 Chevrolet will have an enlarged Lionheart Knight image like the one Wheldon had on the back of his helmets.
Patrick will wear a specially designed helmet honoring Wheldon, and it will be auctioned after the race for the Dan Wheldon Memorial Fund. She also is donating her prize money this weekend to the fund.
