Danica Patrick accidentally reveals her Indianapolis 500 ride: Ed Carpenter Racing  3 Months ago

Source:   USA Today  

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. — The second half of the Danica Double lineup was confirmed Wednesday by none other than Danica Patrick — although in indirect fashion.

Talking to reporters during Daytona 500 Media Day Wednesday at the speedway, Patrick revealed without necessarily meaning to that she will drive for Ed Carpenter Racing in the May Indianapolis 500.

The IndyCar race is scheduled to be Patrick’s final motorsports competition. She will race in Sunday’s Daytona 500 and then plans to complete what she is calling the Danica Double at Indy in May.

Patrick reached an agreement with the Carpenter team recently and later said she planned a big “reveal” to showcase her plans for Indianapolis. But she let the ECR news slip Wednesday.

Patrick was asked when she will begin concentrating on Indy.

“I didn’t have time to meet up with Ed and the people…,” she said, pausing.

“Oh, did I just say that out loud?” she said. “Oh, well. I’ve never done that in my career.”

Patrick, 35, raced full-time in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series from 2013 to 2017. She went winless while posting seven top-10 finishes. Her best result at the Daytona 500 came during that rookie year when she won the pole and went on to finish eighth.

Before detouring to NASCAR, Patrick finished fourth in the Indy 500 as a rookie in 2005, was third in 2009 and scored six top-10 finishes in seven races in IndyCar's most famous race. In seven years on the Verizon IndyCar circuit Patrick recorded one win (in Japan in 2008), three poles and seven podium finishes.
