I'm right there with you Paulette and would love to drive a car in NASCAR !!!

Right now, I'm so excited to have heard on the news this morning that Danica Patrick is close to closing a deal to drive for Junior!!!

Danica Patrick and Dale Earnhardt, Jr. close to inking deal

By Mark J. Miller

“DanicaIndyCar Racing League driver Danica Patrick is finally going to get a dose of NASCAR. She's apparently very close to signing a two-year deal with the team run by Dale Earnhardt, Jr.: JR Motorsports, according to ESPN.

The negotiations are supposedly "in the final phase" and it will mean that Patrick takes a NASCAR wheel for the first time when next February's Daytona 500 rolls around.

So she'll race full-time for Andretti Green Racing in IndyCar and part-time for JR in NASCAR. Both Earnhardt and Patrick have some sponsorship dollars from GoDaddy.com.

Sports Illustrated was reporting that Patrick was looking to snag $300,000 per race in NASCAR, no mater if it's Nationwide or Camping World Truck Series races. But it's not likely that she's getting that kind of dough.

Oh....I think I would try and get an endorsement for Diet Pepsi and I would also get sponsors for lung cancer research, with money going to LUNGevity!!!
