Danica Pactrick’s first Nascar Race is this Weekend
Danica Patrick will compete in her first stock-car race this weekend. Patrick is going to race in the ARCA at Daytona International on Saturday. The big question on everyone’s mind is, is she going to be able to keep up with the competition.
This is going to be a huge transition for the Indy car driver turned Nascar driver. The extreme temperature inside of a stock-car is going to take some getting used to. Plus, the size and weight difference between stock-cars and Indy car is going to be a big adjustment for her. Patrick has a full plate this season too. She’s racing full time for Indy car, part-time swimsuit modeling and two year contract with JR Motosports.
If Patrick does well Saturday she could compete in the Nationwide Series race at Daytona on February 13. She’s not going to race in any important Nascar events yet, Patrick is going to have to crawl before she walks.
