Danica Patrick: Why Danica Should Stick to One Racing Sport
Danica Patrick is trying to work a deal to continue IndyCar racing as well as make the move to NASCAR.
Now, I don't have a problem with women competing in men's sports, and I don't have a problem with Danica Patrick like some people do. She can race, and that's cool, I guess.
What I do take issue with is the fact that Danica wants to keep her feet in both sports. She needs to just pick one and stick to it.
The obvious answer is to make the full switch to NASCAR and leave IndyCar behind. However, sources close to her say that she will keeping racing in both in the future.
According to an Associated Press report, two people familiar with Danica's 2012 plans say that she is in the finals stages of a new deal that would allow her race full-time Nationwide Series schedule with JR Motorsports and limited Sprint Cup Series races with the team owned by Tony Stewart.
This deal would also let her race in the historic Indianapolis 500.
Danica is winless in her Nationwide races, but she only has one IndyCar victory. JR Motorspots co- owner Dale Earnhardt Jr. says she's "way ahead of the curve" as a NASCAR driver.
If Dale Jr is a believer in her then she needs to hang up her IndyCar racing career.
Yes, the Indianapolis 500 is a very big race, but it's time for Danica to move on. If she were truly serious about competing in NASCAR then she would be completely done with IndyCar.
Danica is the third highest paid female athlete in the world according to Forbes, and if she wants to be No. 1 then NASCAR is the way to do just that. Start winning in NASCAR and she will become the biggest female athlete on the planet.
She's a woman, so chances are she'll probably get her way and race in both. However, if she were a true competitor she would focus solely on beating the boys of NASCAR, which everybody knows if the biggest racing sport in the US.
