FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) - Danica Patrick says she won't be distracted by talk about her possible future in NASCAR or any other racing series.
The IndyCar driver responded to questions Thursday at Texas Motor Speedway ahead of the Bombardier Learjet 550k on Saturday.
If Patrick makes a move to NASCAR her preference would be to drive in the top-level Sprint Cup Series. Asked about the possibility of Formula One racing, she says she prefers to remain in the United States.
Patrick says she knew her future would be more prominent topic this year since her contract with Andretti-Green Racing is up at the end of the season.
While she expects to explore all of her options, Patrick is concentrating on trying to win IndyCar races, and that a "really good group" around her can handle the other stuff.
