Danica Patrick to drive in 2018 Daytona 500, Indianapolis 500, then retire

Fryer's report also suggests that Patrick, as she has stated for months, initially was reluctant to give up on racing for a living. She's also the only woman to have ever led laps in both the Indianapolis 500 and the Daytona 500-19 of those laps were as a rookie in IndyCar.

Patrick's contract with Stewart-Haas Racing will come to an end on Sunday after the season-ending NASCAR Cup Series race at Homestead-Miami. Before her move to stock cars, Patrick saw tons of success in IndyCar, becoming the first woman to win a race and being named the most popular driver from 2005-10. I thought she'd go road racing or back to IndyCar or something along those lines, because I think that's where she can be successful.

The AP reported her likely Indianapolis 500 team will be Chip Ganassi Racing and the race will be her last one.

Patrick admitted that coming into the 2017 season, she faced something she never had to face before - sponsorship woes. Her best finish in the standings was 5th, which she pulled off in the 2009 season. Chip Ganassi Racing is said to be the top candidate for Indy, which raises the obvious question of whether Ganassi would field a third vehicle for her at Daytona as well, making her a one-off teammate to Kyle Larson and Jamie McMurray. Through 189 races she has seven top 10 finishes. Join the Beyond the Flag team!

Patrick will race in the Daytona 500 and the Indy 500 next year before bringing the curtain down on her career.
