Danica Patrick has a ride for Daytona.
She’ll ride for Premium Motorsports in the No. 7 Chevrolet, and there are two added bonuses — Premium has a charter, which means she doesn’t have to qualify for the race, and her former crew chief, Tony Eury Jr., will be with her. Her deal is for the one race.
Premium obtained a charter when it purchased the assets of Tommy Baldwin Racing.
Last November, Patrick announced she would like to run two final races before ending her career. The two-race package is now being dubbed the “Danica Double” and includes the Daytona 500 and Indy 500.
Patrick has been involved in a long search process to ensure she is able to finish her career with these two races. She recently secured sponsorship via her former sponsor Go Daddy, who will sponsor her for both races if she’s able to secure rides for them.
Within the last few days, Premium has been mentioned as a destination for Patrick.
Now, she can prepare for Daytona and turn her attention to a ride with IndyCar, where she has a few possibilities.
