Patrick finishing IndyCar run with eye on NASCAR



KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) — Danica Patrick is ready for one last hurrah in IndyCars before she turns her attention entirely to her blossoming stock car career.

The IndyCar icon has raced a partial Nationwide schedule the past two seasons during her much-publicized transition to NASCAR. Her final open-wheel race is the IndyCar World Championships on Oct. 16 in Las Vegas, and then it’s on to her full-time ride with Dale Earnhardt Jr.’s JR Motorsports.

“I’m ready for change,” Patrick said Friday at Kansas Speedway, where she was preparing for Saturday’s Nationwide Series race.
