So where does that leave Danica Patrick in her search for 2018 rides?

“I thought it was going to be a quicker process, but you can’t rush things,” Danica Patrick stated on ‘The Morning Drive’ via Sirius XM NASCAR Radio.

“I’m a big believer more and more all the time of letting things flow and just letting things take shape in the way that they would. And that’s kind of why I ended where I ended with finishing up my full-time career last year and doing the Daytona 500 and the Indy 500 for this year.”
