Danica Patrick says she'll skip Indy 500 and run in NASCAR's . - YouTube Danica Patrick is the Rookie sensation of the Indy Racing League, driving for Rahal -Letterman racing, which is co-owned by racing legend Bobby Rahal

In 2002 Patrick started driving for Rahal Letterman Racing in the United States. Many other things can be said about Danica Patrick ! Patrick ’s Car in Indianapolis 2010 Patrick during 2011 Indy Japan,Final! Awards.

Danica Patrick will lose her NASCAR Cup ride at Stewart-Haas Racing at the end of this season and has not yet announced where – or even if – she will race in 2018.

And while the Roscoe, IL-native stated recently that she’s not truly considering an IndyCar return, she opened the door to speculation by saying “never say never.”

Patrick spent the first two seasons in her seven-year IndyCar career at Rahal Letterman Racing, having raced junior formulas for Bobby Rahal for three years. While her sole IndyCar win would come with Andretti Green Racing, at Motegi in 2008, her first significant moments in IndyCar came with RLR in May 2005. Patrick qualified fourth for the Indy 500, became the first woman ever to lead laps there, and ultimately finished fourth.

Bucs’ new kicker Patrick Murray admits he’s been consulting a psychic

  Bucs’ new kicker Patrick Murray admits he’s been consulting a psychic Tampa Bay Buccaneers newest kicker Patrick Murray weighs in on preparing for his second stint in Tampa."She's helped me tremendously with a lot of different things and maybe it's just getting me to talk has helped me, getting stuff off my chest and being able to really kind of feel that positive energy," Murray told Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times.

After four years of pushing cars over 200 miles per hour on the English race circuit, Danica Patrick returned to the USA and eventually joined Team Rahal on the IndyCar Series in 2005. At the 2005 Indy 500 , Danica led the race for several laps, before finishing fourth.

He returned to IMS in 2002 as a team owner, now with talk show host (and Indianapolis native) David Letterman as his partner. Rahal Letterman Racing won the 2004 Indianapolis 500 with driver Buddy Rice, and the team also launched Danica Patrick ’s Indy car career.

Asked today if he'd “like to have her back in Indy,” Graham Rahal said: “Danica I would consider a great friend of our family. She certainly was a big part of the history of our [RLR – now RLLR] program years and years ago.

“It would always be great to have her back to drive at Indy. But really that's completely up to her and the decisions that she makes.

“We always welcome to IndyCar – like we did Fernando [Alonso] – the best talent to come and try their hand at running in the 500. Whoever that may be in the future, it would be great to have them.

“But I think you'd really have to ask her what her future plans are.”
