BREAKING NEWS: Danica Patrick To Run The Prelude To The Dream

So much press has been made about Danica Patrick’s journey from Indycars to the NASCAR scene, and even though it’s outside of our realm, we would be lying if we said we hadn’t been keeping an eye on how things have been going for her.

When the deal was struck between Tony Stewart Racing and Danica, we wondered if we would get the chance to see Danica in a dirt Late Model at Tony Stewart’s Eldora Speedway.

It turns out we will be getting that opportunity at the 2012 Feed The Children Prelude to the Dream on Wednesday June 6th. But it turns out this won’t be Danica’s first time on dirt, “I raced on dirt once before in a go-kart when I was young, but that’s about it.  It’s going to be a challenge for sure, but I know Tony has offered to help in any way possible.   I’m excited about it, but I’m also nervous,” stated Patrick.  “It’s a totally different style of racing, so I’m not sure what to expect. But, it’s for a great cause with Feed The Children benefiting from the money raised this year, so I’m ready to give it a shot.”

Danica and five other drivers were announced which brings the current total of drivers for the annual event to 18.

Current registered drivers:

  • Ryan Newman
  • Danica Patrick
  • Bobby Labonte
  • Kenny Wallace
  • Ty Dillon
  • Aric Almirola
  • Clint Bowyer
  • Kasey Kahne
  • Kurt Busch
  • Dave Blaney
  • Tony Kanaan
  • Ron Capps
  • Jimmie Johnson
  • Just Allgaier
  • Bill Elliott
  • Ray Evernham
  • David Gilliland
  • Cruz Pedregon

So now the question comes to you, how will Danica do in her first late model event on the historic Eldora Speedway? Leave us a comment below and let us know!
