Danica Patrick reportedly will have a guaranteed starting spot in next month's Daytona 500 thanks to Stewart-Haas Racing's acquiring points earned by Tommy Baldwin Racing last season.
Sirius/XM NASCAR Radio's "Sirius/XM Speedway" reports SHR has a deal lined up to acquire the points from TBR's Dave Blaney in 2011, which were inside the Top 35 and thus guarantees a starting position in the first five races of this season.
Patrick is scheduled to run approximately 10 Sprint Cup races this season, and TBR driver David Reutimann will run many of the events Patrick does not in the No. 10 entry. While Patrick will drive Stewart Haas cars purchased from Hendrick Motorsports in her 10 races, David Reutimann will steer Baldwin’s cars in his outings.
