Patrick qualified her GoDaddy-sponsored Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 from Premium Motorsports in 28th place for the Daytona 500.

Racer says that when asked about Indy, Patrick said that she "didn't have time to meet up with Ed and the people." before pausing and saying "I have never done that in my career". "But yeah, I wasn't expecting the news to come out before those kinda details had been finalized", he said. I think it's exciting to be a part of it, to be a part of her history as her farewell to racing in moving onto the next phase in her life.

This NASCAR race will be Patrick's second-to-last of her career. That might not be the case at Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

The 102nd running of the Indy 500 will be May 27.

Patrick ran seven seasons in IndyCar before leaving after the 2001 season to move to NASCAR.

Patrick finished third in the 2009 Indianapolis 500 and eighth in the 2013 Daytona 500 - both the highest-finishing result for a woman in those events. In seven Indy 500 races, Patrick only finished lower than 10th once, in 2008, due to a pit crash.

Ed Carpenter Racing is expected to have a three-car team at the Indianapolis 500 with Spencer Pigot and Ed Carpenter behind the wheel of the other two cars.
