Tony Stewart on Danica Patrick: ‘I don’t see her leaving the sport’


Stewart-Haas Racing co-owner Tony Stewart knows that Danica Patrick won’t be on his roster but he believes Patrick will be in NASCAR in 2018.

Patrick announced earlier in September that she would not return to SHR in 2018 and Stewart talked about her status during an appearance Tuesday on “The Dan Patrick Show”.

“Good question,” Stewart said when he was asked about Patrick.

“I don’t know. I don’t know what she has planned. She has so much stuff going on. She reminds me a lot of me. She’s got wineries, she’s got her yoga stuff, she’s got a clothing line she’s working on. But I don’t see her leaving the sport. She’s that driven and that competitive. She still wants to win.”
