Danica Patrick is coming to NASCAR, it was announced on Tuesday, marking the first time that the 27-year-old racecar driver, who currently competes in the IndyCar Series, will race in the nationwide contests.

Danica, who began go-karting at the age of 10, will join the JR Motosports team, which is co-owned by Kelley Earnhardt, sister of Dale Jr.

“That’s right—in a sport derided by its detractors as backward-looking, the hottest new team in NASCAR will have at its center two women,” wrote Jay Busbee of Yahoo Sports.

“The truth is that Patrick and Earnhardt will make for a powerful tandem regardless of their gender … and, to an extent, regardless of Danica’s immediate success on the track.” (Newser)
