CONCORD, N.C. (AP) - Danica Patrick will not run the Indianapolis 500 this season.
Patrick will instead compete in the Coca-Cola 600, which is NASCAR's longest race of the year.
She announced the addition to her 2012 NASCAR schedule Monday.
Patrick has left IndyCar for a full-time move to NASCAR. She's running a full season in the second-tier Nationwide Series for JR Motorsports and 10 races in the elite Sprint Cup Series with Stewart-Haas Racing.
Patrick says she'd like to return to the Indy 500 in the future and would be interested in running both events on the same day. She says she just couldn't make it work this season.
