Danica Patrick to drive Daytona 500 for Premium Motorsports

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Danica Patrick has found a ride for the Daytona 500 that helps complete the closing of her racing career in appropriate fashion.

Patrick will drive for Premium Motorsports in next month's Daytona 500, her final NASCAR race. She also plans to race in the Indianapolis 500 in May.

The one-race deal for next month's NASCAR showcase will put Patrick in the seat of the No. 7 GoDaddy Chevrolet, the same number she drove when she entered stock-car racing in 2010.
