This time it’s happening. Probably. One month after an ESPN report that Danica Patrick to NASCAR was all but a done deal, which was followed by Rick Hendrick saying no deal was in place, the Associated Press now reports, "A person familiar with the plan says Danica Patrick has reached a deal to enter NASCAR with JR Motorsports." Patrick is expected to announce a partial Nationwide Series schedule at a Tuesday news conference in Phoenix. This better happen, or Charlotte Observer reporter Jim Utter’s head will explode.
