Career Overview

One of the most anticipated Cup Series debuts in recent time happened in 2012 when Danica Patrick qualified for the Daytona 500. One year later, in her first full season, she won her only career pole on her way to finishing eighth in the race.

Sponsorship and performance issues during the 2017 led to her being released from Stewart-Haas Racing at the conclusion of the season. Putting together one last ride, she ran the 2018 Daytona 500 for Premium Motorsports. Later in the year she will run the Indianapolis 500 one last time before retiring from auto racing.
