ESPNAPI_IMG_NO_ALTEXT_Value

The long-time NASCAR and IndyCar driver confirmed the news as she announced her retirement from a full-time racing schedule Friday afternoon in Miami. Patrick plans to run in both the Daytona 500 and the Indianapolis 500 as a way to cap off her racing career.

Danica Patrick is in talks with NBC Sports to potentially join the network in the coming months, although her driving career might not quite be finished, two people with knowledge of her future plans told USA TODAY Sports on Friday. Her best finish this season was 10th at Dover, Del.

The AP reported her likely Indianapolis 500 team will be Chip Ganassi Racing and the race will be her last one.

"I feel like I should be doing this", Patrick said after regaining her composure.

Patrick didn't reveal which teams she would drive for in 2018 but "nothing's final yet". It was announced that Patrick would be replaced by Aric Almirola in early November.

"I think we heard I could TV, but right now, no", Patrick said.

While she has been racing for Stewart-Haas Racing since 2012, she will not be representing the team at the Daytona 500 in February. Her highest finish was third in 2009, and she was the first woman to lead laps in the race when she paced the field for 19 trips around the Brickyard as a rookie. Her best finish in the standings is 24th, which she pulled off in both the 2015 and 2016 seasons. But I definitely was faced with situations at the beginning of the year that I had never faced before.

Patrick spent seven years in the IndyCar series between 2005 and 2011, racing for Rahal Letterman Racing, Andretti Green Racing, and Andretti Autosport.
