HOMESTEAD, Fla. -- Danica Patrick announced while her full-time Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series will come to a close with Sunday's race, she's not completely done with racing.
Patrick, who had to stop multiple times during Friday's news conference at Homestead-Miami Speedway to compose herself, said she will run two final races next year: February’s Daytona 500 and May’s Indianapolis 500.
"I am really excited about that," Patrick said.
Patrick's contract with Stewart-Haas Racing concludes after Sunday’s Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series race. She announced in September that she would not be back with Stewart-Haas Racing. Aric Almirola will replace Patrick in the No. 10 Ford.
