Danica Patrick headed to NASCAR?

For most people when you ask them to name an Indy Car driver about the only one they can name is Danica Patrick...And half of those only know her from her magazine layouts and not her two Indy 500 top 10 finishes. Well now there is word that she may be headed to NASCAR. This would be devastating for Indy Car racing, as they have received a surge of media attention thanks to Patrick:

That report fuelled speculation on the first of three days of testing in Indy that Patrick, whose contract with Rahal Letterman Racing expires after this season, could be leaving the Indy Racing League for NASCAR.

Team spokesman, Brent Mauer, declined to comment on the report Monday but confirmed that the Rahal team has been discussing a contract extension with Patrick.

Patrick quickly emerged as an IRL fan favorite last season when she became the first woman to lead the Indianapolis 500. She finished fourth, the highest ever for a woman, and was named the race's rookie of the year in 2005.
