Patrick set for Nationwide debut

1 Mins read

Danica Patrick is set to make her NASCAR Nationwide Series debut in the no.7 GoDaddy.com Chevrolet this Saturday at Daytona International Speedway.

Patrick made her stock car debut this weekend in the ARCA event at Daytona, finishing a strong sixth place despite being caught up in a couple of incidents.

“To be the one driving that Go Daddy car at Daytona means a lot to me,” Patrick said. “Racing in the Nationwide Series race was my goal during this entire two-month preparation process, but we wanted to make sure it was the right thing to do. The ARCA race was a blast, and I'm not ready for my first Daytona Speedweeks to end just yet. I want more racing.”

Patrick will take part alongside Dale Earnhardt Jr. in the Drive4COPD 300 for JR Motorsports team and continue her Nationwide series schedule on 20 February at Auto Club Speedway California followed by Motor Speedway in Las Vegas.

“I think Danica proved to everyone that she can compete in stock cars at a high level, and right now seat time is extremely important,” Kelley Earnhardt said. “She has worked extremely hard during the past two months for this opportunity. Her dedication and work ethic is infectious.”

Primary sponsor GoDaddy.com were more than happy with the performance Patrick has shown so far “Danica's got what it takes, and it's obvious from the ARCA race NASCAR is right up her alley,” said Go Daddy CEO and Founder Bob Parsons. “She's ready to drive the No. 7 GoDaddy.com Chevy in Daytona and is sure to give the fans an exciting show just like she did in the ARCA race.”
