A slip of the tongue might get Danica Patrick in trouble, but it’s good news for her

Danica Patrick did something Wednesday she said she had never done before, and appeared awfully upset with herself.

But deep down, the news that Patrick let slip in front of about two dozen reporters at Daytona International Speedway must have been gratifying as well.

Patrick revealed that she has a ride with Ed Carpenter Racing for the 2018 Indianapolis 500, filling in the missing piece that completes the “Danica Double,” a two-race farewell tour to her racing career.

Patrick will run just two races this year – Sunday’s NASCAR Daytona 500 for Premium Motorsports and the May 27 IndyCar Indy 500 for ECR. And then she’ll retire from racing. Just like she told everyone in November before the NASCAR season finale at Homestead-Miami Speedway.
