“Patrick, who added the Nationwide Series last year with JR Motorsports to her schedule, will compete in the first four Nationwide Series races -- Daytona (Feb. 19), Phoenix (Feb. 26), Las Vegas (March 5) and Bristol, Tenn. (March 19). With a loaded schedule, the remainder of her Nationwide involvement will come late and at the back end of the schedule -- Chicagoland (June 4), Daytona (July 1), Circuit Gilles Villeneuve (Montreal, Aug. 20), Richmond (Sept. 9), and Kansas (Oct. 8), Texas (Nov. 5), Phoenix (Nov. 12) and Homestead-Miami (Nov. 19). "This is going to be an exciting year in the No. 7 GoDaddy.com Chevrolet," the 28-year-old Patrick said in a statement. "I have a much different perspective heading into this season. I know a little more of what to expect, and I'm not as out of my element." Patrick scored a career-best fifth-place start and 19th-place finish in last year's Nationwide finale at Homestead-Miami Speedway.
