However, this isn't the end of her career as she will compete in two races next season: the Daytona 500 and Indianapolis 500. She posted six other top-10 finishes throughout her 189-race career, including a season-high 10th at Dover International Speedway this season. Everyone needs to put their mind there. It took "months" to come to the realization that retirement was in her future. Chip Ganassi Racing is said to be the top candidate for Indy, which raises the obvious question of whether Ganassi would field a third auto for her at Daytona as well, making her a one-off teammate to Kyle Larson and Jamie McMurray. "So he said, "how about finishing up at Daytona" then I said "how about Indy" without even realizing what I said".

Before moving to NASCAR, Patrick was the most successful woman to compete in American open-wheel racing and the only woman to ever win an IndyCar race.

The AP reported her likely Indianapolis 500 team will be Chip Ganassi Racing and the race will be her last one. Her performance there won her the 2005 Rookie of the Year award for both the Indianapolis 500 as well as the full IndyCar season.

"It would always be great to have her back to drive at Indy", said Rahal.

"I don't feel like I was necessarily pushed into this". But she's not stepping away from racing entirely. The only emotional (expletive) that you see me talking about, makes me mad. Patrick was an easy sell for years to sponsors as racing's most visible woman driver.
