Multiple sources say former JRM Nationwide Series driver Danica Patrick will augment her full-time schedule of NASCAR Sprint Cup Series racing with a 10-race Nationwide Series slate in Chevrolets from the Turner stable.
Like her Stewart Haas Racing Sprint Cup Series team, Turner Motorsports enjoys a technological partnership with Hendrick Motorsports and fields Hendrick-built Chevrolets in Nationwide competition. Eventual Camping World Truck Series champion James Buescher won the series’ season opener at Daytona last season, and teammate Justin Allgaier finished sixth in championship points, with one victory.
While Patrick’s 10-race Nationwide schedule has not yet been finalized, sources say they will compete in the Feb. 23 lid-lifter at Daytona International Speedway; a race for which she won the pole a year ago. She will compete in the Daytona 500 for Stewart Haas Racing the following day.
