JR Motorsports co-owner Kelley Earnhardt Miller said Wednesday that she has not spoken to Danica Patrick about her 2013 plans, but would be open to fielding at least a part-time Nationwide Series Chevrolet for her next season.
“I think Danica has interest in being back at JRM for a select few races next season, and we’re certainly interested in having her,” said Earnhardt, adding her schedule would almost certainly be part-time, in addition to a full slate of comnpetition with Stewart Haas Racing on the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series.
“We’re focusing on our full-time stuff first, then we’ll turn our attention to the rest,” she said. “If everything works out, maybe we can put together Danica’s schedule with the races Dale Jr. runs. We’re still negotiating with sponsors to figure out if we’re going to be a two-car team next year, or two cars with a third part-time entry.”
