AVONDALE, Ariz. (AP) - Danica Patrick has decided not to race in the Indianapolis 500 next season.
Multiple people familiar with her plans tell The Associated Press that Patrick has decided running the Indy 500 would be a distraction to her NASCAR efforts. The people spoke on condition of anonymity because Patrick has not officially announced her plans.
Patrick declined to comment Saturday at Phoenix International Raceway.
She left IndyCar at the end of last season for a full-time move to NASCAR, and is going full-time into the Sprint Cup Series in 2013.
She'll drive for Stewart-Haas Racing in the Cup Series.
