Advance Auto Parts Clash at Daytona: Start time, lineup, how to watch

  Advance Auto Parts Clash at Daytona: Start time, lineup, how to watch Find out when the Advance Auto Parts Clash at Daytona starts, what the lineup is and how to watch it.The event has been a season-opening NASCAR staple since 1979 and will be preceded by the pole qualifying for the Daytona 500.

The Indy 500 will be the final race of Patrick 's career after she drove in this year's Daytona 500 as part of the ' Danica Double.' Patrick will form a three-car team for ECR at the Indy 500 alongside Spencer Pigot and team owner Ed Carpenter .

Danica Patrick joining Ed Carpenter Racing for Indy 500 swan song. The 35-year-old Patrick had not said which team she would drive for at Indy because a big announcement was planned for what is expected to be the final race of her career.

Danica Patrick, the first woman to lead laps in the Indianapolis 500, has apparently let slip that the sign-off to her racing career will be at the wheel of an Ed Carpenter Racing-Chevrolet at Indy.

Speaking to media members at the Daytona 500 Media Day, when quizzed on her Indy 500 prospects Patrick responded, "Actually I didn't have time to meet up with Ed and the people that ... Oh, did I say that out loud? I've never done that in my career."

She then walked away, apparently annoyed with herself.

Representatives from Chip Ganassi Racing, Schmidt Peterson Motorsport, Rahal Letterman Lanigan Racing and Dreyer & Reinbold Racing all confirmed to Motorsport.com yesterday that they would not be running Patrick in the 500, and all indications suggested she would run a third ECR car.

Danica Patrick's final NASCAR race, complicated legacy await

  Danica Patrick's final NASCAR race, complicated legacy await As she walked into the media center at Daytona International Speedway on Saturday, all the whispering stopped. The keyboard tapping, too. Everyone craned their necks and watched her climb the podium steps, sit down and speak into the microphone for what could be the final time. Everyone wanted to hear what Danica Patrick had to say. Patrick, 35, will run her final NASCAR Cup Series race next Sunday in the 60th Daytona 500. She will, barring a miraculous win in a worse car, end her career with no wins at NASCAR's top level.

Patrick announced her intentions of running the two races back in November at the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series finale at Homestead-Miami Now, Danica has finally confirmed the second half of the ‘ Danica Double’. She will join Ed Carpenter Racing for the Indy 500 in May, as the full-time

Carpenter, a two-time Indy 500 pole-winner and the only fulltime owner/driver in the IndyCar Series will thus enter three cars for the 102nd running of the Memorial Day Weekend classic – for himself, Spencer Pigot and Patrick.

The deal – which was rumored to be made official at an unveiling in the IMS Hall of Fame Museum next month – means that Patrick’s final two races will be at the wheel of a Chevrolet-badged vehicle. She will compete at the Daytona 500 in a Premium Motorsport Camaro.
