Danica Patrick confirmed Thursday that she will not attempt the Indianapolis 500 this season. Patrick is making her full-time debut in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series with Stewart-Haas Racing and has opted to focus on that effort. To attempt the 500, she would need to run both that race and NASCAR's longest, the Coca-Cola 600, on the same afternoon. She did confirm that she is trying to run a partial Nationwide Series season and is talking to Turner Scott Motorsports, though nothing has been finalized yet.
