Danica gets new sponsors
LAS VEGAS, NV (TheSpread) – Danica Patrick is hoping that 2015 will be her breakout season in NASCAR. Apparently sponsors think it could be.
Stewart-Haas Racing, the team Patrick drives for, announced on Tuesday that Patrick has a new sponsor for two races in TaxACT. They will join Patrick for the Sprint Unlimited on Feb. 14 and the March race at Martinsville.
According to oddsmakers at BetDSI, Danica Patrick has very long odds to win the Sprint Cup Championship, as she has a money line of +50000 to win it all this season. Under the new format, Patrick could find herself in the Chase if she gets her first NASCAR victory.
Patrick has had two-full seasons as a Sprint Cup driver. In the 2013 season, she finished 27th in the standings. Last season, Patrick came in 28th place. She had just one top 10 in the 2013 season, but cracked the top 10 three times in 2014. Her best finish was sixth in Atlanta this past season.
