What's next for Danica Patrick after losing her NASCAR Cup Series ride?

15 September, 2017, 00:42 | Author: Glenda Knight

Patrick announced Tuesday she would not be returning to Stewart-Haas Racing in 2018 after five full-time seasons driving the No. 10 auto.

"The decision to leave Richard Petty Motorsports and join Stewart-Haas Racing was hard, but we feel this move will improve our competitiveness on the track and strengthen our position as a leading consumer packaged goods company", Smithfield said in a statement.

Patrick announced Tuesday that her partnership with Stewart-Haas Racing had ended, leaving her future in NASCAR in question. Together we earned a Daytona 500 pole, seven top-10 finishes and we also had some exciting racing along the way.

From Danica's perspective, she's competed at the highest levels of the Indianapolis 500 and NASCAR Cup Series racing. "I'm just kind of letting it organically flow". "If I have the opportunity to drive for a team that is going to give me a chance to win, then I'll do it". Her statement today confirmed her reasons for her split from the Stewart-Haas Racing team, but there were no indications of any 2018 plans as of yet; perhaps signaling a potential end to, at least, her stock auto racing career. Unlike Tony Stewart, Jeff Gordon and Dale Earnhardt Jr., Patrick isn't necessarily defined by her career.

She'd likely have to be OK with taking a pretty steep pay cut, and she'd have to find a team where she believes she could be competitive. She said she wasn't dreading the appearance and was in a good place mentally.

"If you look at our stats of our first few years", Stenhouse said, "they didn't really look that much different for all the success I had in the Xfinity vehicle and winning races and championships, so it's just tough to make sure that you have the right people behind you - the right people on your team that believe in everything that you can do". What's more, it might be an ideal time for her to get back in the game. Particularly this season, she really started having sponsorship issues, so even ignoring her poor results, her ride for next season was in doubt because of it.

IndyCar career when she decided to make the jump to NASCAR's top level in 2011. When she met with reporters last month and was asked about a potential IndyCar and NASCAR mixed schedule for 2018, Patrick said she had not heard of any talk of that type of plan.

"She could leave right now and she's made a great impact", Larson said.

"It's nice to hear, but I've also driven for him for a long time", Patrick said.
