Danica Patrick Calls Time On Her Racing Career 20

One of the biggest personalities in motorsports today is exiting stage left as Danica Patrick has announced her retirement from racing full-time.

“This will be my last season as a full-time driver,” said Patrick this past Friday at Homestead, as reported by Autosport.

The move comes after she lost her ride with Stewart-Haas Racing, replaced by Aric Almirola. She’d been working on securing a deal to stay in the NASCAR Cup series with another team, but evidently those negotiations didn’t pan out.

We haven’t quite seen the last of Danica just yet, though. She’s planning on contesting two headline races in 2018: the Daytona 500 and the Indianapolis 500.

The latter will mark her first return to open wheels since 2011 when she left the IndyCar Series for NASCAR full-time. She found more success in Indy, winning the race at Motegi in 2008, than she did in NASCAR, where she achieved a career-best sixth-place finish in Atlanta in 2014 – one of seven top-ten results she’s scored in the Cup.

Despite middling performance, Danica’s proven popular with the fans, who named her Most Popular Driver in IndyCar six years running (between 2005 and 2010) and once in the NASCAR Nationwide series.

When the 2017 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup season comes to a close, Dale Earnhardt, Jr will walk away from the sport.

Eager to pay tribute to Earnhardt’s long and successful career, Budweiser has released a slow-beat video looking back at some unforgettable races the much-loved driver was involved in.

Having completed over 600 races throughout his career, Earnhardt, Jr has claimed 26 victories, none much memorable than his win at the 2001 Pepsi 400 at Daytona International that came just a few months after his father died during the Daytona 500.

Of the 18 seasons which Earnhardt, Jr has competed in, eight of them were done with the Budweiser Chevrolet team.
