Danica Jumping to NASCAR?

By  | 

RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - Danica Patrick says she is not likely to make any announcement about her future in racing until after the IndyCar Series season is finished in October.

The only woman to win a major open-wheel race in history is in the final year of her three-year contract with Andretti-Green Racing. She says she is in the process of gathering information about what her options will be next season in open-wheel racing and possibly NASCAR.

Patrick, who won last season in Japan, is in her fifth season in the IndyCar Series and is having her best year. She has recorded five consecutive top-six finishes with a best showing of third in the premier event, the Indianapolis 500. She is fifth in the series point standings heading into this weekend's race at Iowa Speedway.
