Danica Patrick to run in Talladega Nationwide race

April 29, 2013, Staff report, NASCAR.com

Danica Patrick Nationwide

No. 34 car will be sponsored by AccuDoc Solutions/GoDaddy.com

Danica Patrick will race for Turner Scott Motorsports in Saturday's Aaron's 312 at Talladega Motor Speedway. This will be the second Nationwide race of the season for Patrick, who also raced in the No. 34 at Daytona to open the season. Patrick led five laps in that race with Mike Greci atop the pit box, but after completing only 31 laps, engine problems took her off the track. Greci will once again be crew chief for Patrick and the No. 34 team on the 117-lap restrictor plate race.

"I'm thrilled that I get another chance to drive the No. 34 AccuDoc Solutions/GoDaddy.com Chevrolet Camaro for Turner Scott Motorsports," Patrick said. "We had a great run going in Daytona, and I'm hoping we can pick up where we left off."

Patrick has only raced at Talladega once in her career, finishing 13th in the Nationwide race at the track last year. Her teammates for the race, which airs at 3 p.m. ET on ABC, will be Justin Allgaier, Kyle Larson and Nelson Piquet Jr.
