Danica Patrick is coming to NASCAR, right? Done deal. Sure thing. No brainer … right? Not so fast, says team owner Rick Hendrick. On Sunday Hendrick said he has no deal in place to bring the IndyCar star Patrick to NASCAR, and added that there is no certainty she’ll be driving stock cars next season. A deal between Hendrick and Dale Earnhardt Jr.’s JR Motorsports and Patrick to run a limited Nationwide schedule has long been rumored. From Hendrick’s comments, it sounds like Patrick’s reps from IMG aren’t showing a sense of urgency in getting a deal done.
