Patrick Trading IndyCar For NASCAR

PHOENIX (AP) -- Danica Patrick has signed with JR Motorsports and will make her stock car racing debut in an ARCA race at Daytona International Speedway.

The IndyCar sensation unveiled her green and orange No. 7 Chevrolet at Chase Field on Tuesday.

Her first race will be Feb. 6 at Daytona -- the day before she's featured in a pair of Super Bowl ads for sponsor

Patrick finalized a three-year contract extension last week with Andretti Autosport to run a full IndyCar schedule, but there's time for her to try NASCAR. She will drive for the team owned by Dale Earnhardt Jr. and Rick Hendrick in the second-tier Nationwide Series.

Patrick did not reveal how many NASCAR races she expects to run next season.
