Patrick Announcement Contains Little New News

patrick1IndyCar driver Danica Patrick discussed her racing future on Good Morning America on Monday. But, she didn’t reveal anything about her potential NASCAR future. Instead, she discussed her IndyCar plans, which we already knew.

Patrick unveiled her car for Andretti Autosport, with whom she signed a three-year contract extension earlier this season. The appearance served as her official announcement that she would drive for Andretti Autosport next season.

The deal was held up by Patrick’s current sponsorship deal with Motorola, and the restructuring of Andretti Green Racing, which recently changed its name from Andretti Green Racing to Andretti Autosport.

Patrick said in a news release:

My life long goal is to win the Indy 500, and I’d love to do that in the car.

She added:

Michael Andretti has helped me become a better driver and we hope to accomplish a great deal during the next few years together.

Team owner Michael Andretti said:

All of us at Andretti Autosport are looking forward to having Danica back with the team and are excited about working with (CEO) Bob Parsons and everyone at Go Daddy as the primary sponsor on Danica’s car.

The news was a disappointment for some Patrick fans who are waiting to hear confirmation or denial of the loads of rumors circulating about her potential move to NASCAR.

Update: It is being reported that Patrick’s website contained a photo of the driver in a uniform with a Chevy emblem and what appeared to be the JR Motorsports and Nationwide Series logos. The picture was later changed to her Indy uniform.

Officials that represent Patrick and JRM declined to comment.
