Lady's Choice: Danica Reportedly Plans To Race Full-Time In NASCAR Next Season
Published May 25, 2011
INDYCAR DRIVERS TALK ABOUT NEWS: IndyCar driver Alex Tagliani said if Patrick’s “plan long-term is to race in NASCAR, I think she has to pay her dues like everyone else.” Fellow IndyCar driver Oriol Servia said Patrick is "in a different position than I think any of us.” Servia: “She's a great driver, but she's probably the most popular driver in IndyCar or NASCAR in the country. So she could probably choose to do NASCAR, IndyCar or Formula One if she wants to.” Driver Scott Dixon: "Our racing is not a contact sport whereas NASCAR can be quite rough at the best of times. So it's going to be a different thing. But I know what ... I love to do is IndyCar" (“SportsCenter,” ESPN, 5/24).
