Danica Patrick seems to close the door on one racing opportunity


Danica Patrick is still unemployed for 2018, and she's still looking for a ride. But, in comments reported by ESPN, it appears she's closing the door on a return to IndyCar, the series in which she's had the most success.

"I'm not planning on anything going back to IndyCar but never say never," she said.

In IndyCar, she's the only woman to win series race, when she won the Japan 300 in 2008. Her third-place finish in the 2009 Indy 500 is the highest finish ever for a female driver.

But, it looks like its NASCAR or bust.

There's speculation that Patrick could land with Richard Childress Racing, taking the ride vacated by Paul Menard. She says there's a lot at play with making a decision.

"It comes to money. And it also comes down to what I want to do. Moving parts -- and answers that have yet to come to fruition. But that's what I have to answer. I have to answer, do I want to do this? It is a grind. My only goal is to win. So, if I think I have the opportunity, then, it will definitely be something that I will evaluate."
