Danica Patrick is leaning in that direction as well, but she still has the biggest race in NASCAR and open-wheel racing to run before she does. She plans to race in both the Indy 500 and the Daytona 500 next season.

I've never had sponsor issues.

It's not as far fetched as it sounds. Her victory in the 2008 Japan 300 remains the only win by a female racer in Verizon IndyCar Series history. In her first Indy 500 appearance in 2005, she posted her best qualifying performance of fourth.

"I was talking to my agent, Alan (Zucker) about how I wasn't having any fun this year", Patrick said.

In a matter of seconds after Danica Patrick sat down to address the media at Homestead-Miami Speedway on Friday, the tears began to flow. She has not yet announced which team she will drive for, but did say that she does not anticipate a return to NASCAR. And trust me, I lost my (stuff) a few times over that. "I think it's going to be a great way to cap it off".

Patrick went on to thank members of her team and her family, as well as boyfriend and fellow NASCAR driver Ricky Stenhouse Jr.

A new TV deal will not be unfamiliar territory for Patrick, who appeared in several commercials for Go Daddy in the early days of her driving career, and she also was a pit reporter in June for an Xfinity Series race that aired on Fox Sports 1.
