While Danica Patrick made no mention of her NASCAR plans during her announcement of a three-year extension with Andretti Autosport, it sure "looks" like a part-time Nationwide deal with JR Motorsports is forthcoming.

Sure we've heard Patrick to NASCAR reports for months and months, but as her website updated with images of Patrick and her new IndyCar ride, eagle-eyed fan also spotted a small image of Patrick in a GoDaddy uniform bearing a Chevy logo, a Nationwide Series logo and the JR Motorsports logo.

It only appeared briefly before it was pulled from the site, but it's a good bet it will be back up when an official announcement is made in the coming days regarding her future in NASCAR.

I did not see the image on her site myself, but Jayski's NASCAR Silly Season Site has a screen cap of the image:

Wow Brian, you got some bitter people here, and it isn't even mikeyfan this time around. I saw the report on a few websites yesterday, even saw the picture, and had to stifle a yawn. I personally am getting tired of hearing about Patrick coming to NASCAR when she hasn't even proven herself to be a winner in her own series.

For those of you bashing Brian, check out the link under the Racing tab. There is an article that says she has a plan in place to race in NASCAR, but the deals haven't been finalized. Based on that image that was on her site, it looks like Jr. Motorsports is going to be the team she will be driving for.

Right? Seems like a lot of people hide behind the internet and get the courage to say crap they would never say to a person's face. I thought it was fine to point out the picture being it was on her website. All the rumors are getting old however, and maybe this gives a hint. I thought she was signed and delivered to Ganassi earlier this year then I thought she had signed with AGR 3 times.  Kinda wearing out like Brett Favre's yearly offseason drama. 

But people should lighten up

Wow. Why so harsh fellas?

Yes, the image does appear to have a photoshop quality to it, but does it really matter whether it's an edited image or an actual photo? It's an image that showed up on her site, which means it's in her web site's database. Why even have an image like that available if something isn't imminent?

Not that it's really breaking news if she does land at JR Motorsports; it has been rumored and reported for months that it was her likely destination. I just wanted to point out the image to those who hadn't seen it.

A sucker is born every minute...

"it sure "looks" like a part-time Nationwide deal with JR Motorsports is forthcoming."

Looks can be deceiving, just like how having articles published on cbssports can be misleading into thinking this guy is a real writer.  If he paused for 5 seconds and put 1 and 1 together he should have realized this is Danica's head photoshopped on top of Jr.'s Nationwide Go Daddy fire suit with a pretty basic background graphic.  This just tells me that this guy pulled another rush job that wasn't thought through and I'm still surprised he still has a job at CBS. Live it up while you can, with the economy still not straightened out and jobs at a premium, I wouldn't get to comfortable if I was submitting pure monkey scat.

OH  NOOOO ! Jayski  had  a  picture !!!
 What  a  load  of  crap  that  is . I  had  said  that  before  that  Danica  Patrick  will  sign  a  part time  ride  with  JRM . It  wasn't  take  an MBA , ABA , SPCA , FBI , ABC's  to  know   that  one . But  people  will  say  that  Jayski  was  on  top  of  it . YEAH , like  nobody  else  didn't  see  that  one , SHEEZE . Do  you  know  why ? Because  there  are  people , not  all , can't  think  for  themselves , they  can't  believe  until  somebody  , like  Jayski , says  it  so .
