RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - Danica Patrick says it would be nice if she got to start her NASCAR Sprint Cup career at the Daytona 500.
The Indy Racing League star, who is moving to NASCAR fulltime next season, will run a limited Cup schedule in a car owned by Tony Stewart next year. She also will race fulltime in the Nationwide series in a car owned by Dale Earnhardt Jr.
Stewart plans to have Patrick drive in eight to 10 Cup races next season, mostly at tracks that figure to be difficult for her.
She says the idea is to give her a head start on learning at those tracks, but starting at one where she might have success would be nice. She plans to move to the Cup series fulltime in 2013.
