Danica Patrick will become the first female in NASCAR history to make 250 combined starts in the three NASCAR national series when the green flag drops on Sunday’s Can-Am 500 at Phoenix Raceway.
The Stewart-Haas Racing driver will log her 189th start in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series in Sunday’s Round of 8 finale (2:30 p.m. ET, NBC, MRN, SiriusXM NASCAR Radio). Patrick also has 61 starts in the NASCAR XFINITY Series.
Patrick will not return to SHR next year; earlier this week, the team announced Aric Almirola would drive its No. 10 Ford in 2018. Patrick, who earned the Daytona 500 Coors Light Pole Award in 2013, has not announced her plans for 2018.
