FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) - Danica Patrick will make her Sprint Cup debut in the season-opening Daytona 500 in February, her first of 10 races in NASCAR's highest division for Stewart-Haas Racing next season.
Patrick unveiled her limited Cup schedule and new car Friday in Texas. She will drive the No. 10 Chevrolet. That is the same number she had in go-karts.
Team owner Tony Stewart says the team is set on eight of Patrick's 10 races. Her second scheduled race will be May 12 at Darlington, with the other six already set coming late in the season.
Patrick also will run a full Nationwide Series schedule for JR Motorsports in her transition from IndyCar to NASCAR full time.
