Danica Patrick will drive in the Daytona 500 for Premium Motorsports, the Associated Press reported Monday, finalizing the first stage in her plan to compete in the "Danica Double" in 2018.

She will pilot the No. 7 GoDaddy Chevrolet for Premium Motorsports with Tony Eury Jr. atop the pit box, the AP reported, reuniting her with both the number and crew chief with which she began her NASCAR career. "I couldn’t have written a better story about how this would all fall into place," Patrick told AP. "Going with the flow is working out beautifully. … It all makes my last NASCAR race just that much sweeter." Patrick’s plans for the second leg of the "Danica Double" — the Indianapolis 500 — have not yet been finalized.

GoDaddy will return to be Danica Patrick‘s sponsor for the Daytona 500 and Indianapolis 500, the company announced Thursday.

Patrick said in November that she would retire from racing after competing in those two events. She has yet to secure a ride for either race but that was slowed by the lack of sponsorship until Thursday’s announcement. A Chip Ganassi Racing executive said last week that the team was no longer in discussions with Patrick for her to drive for the team in either race.

Danica Patrick was one of only two non-playoff drivers who posted speeds in the top 10 in Friday’s practice session for this week’s race at Chicagoland Speedway.

Coming on the heels of an announcement that she will not return to Stewart-Haas Racing, a weight may have been lifted from her shoulders. She has shown some promise on 1.5-mile tracks in the past and this could be a good week for her.

Danica Patrick finished 11th in the Brickyard 400 at Indianapolis Motor Speedway, which was her third straight top-10 finish.

Her last three results have each been better than the one that preceded it. Next week features another flat track and with a little luck, she could contend for a top-10.

Danica Patrick is still seeking her first top-15 on a road course after eight previous tries.

Some of her better efforts in IndyCar came on this track type, so that was quite a disappointment at the start of her NASCAR career. With a best of 17th at Watkins Glen International last year, she has not been a good fantasy value and owners will have to wait and see if she can show any improvement. .

It had been more than 75 races since Danica Patrick scored her last top-10 finish, but she erased that long negative streak with a 10th-place finish in the AAA 400 Drive for Autism.

Her latest top-10 before this weekend notably came at Bristol Motor Speedway in April 2015. Those two tracks bear some similarities to one another even though they are no longer strong comparatives. This will not erase a season of frustration, but it should be a step in the right direction.

Danica Patrick has failed to finish two of her last three races on similarly-configured, 1.5-mile tracks with an engine failure at Las Vegas Motor Speedway and a crash at Kansas Speedway.

Patrick has been getting increasingly frustrated with her results and that makes her a poor value for fantasy players.

Richmond International Raceway is a better track than most for Danica Patrick. She finished on the lead lap in both of last year’s races.

With limited attrition and NASCAR’s Free Pass/Wave Around rules, Patrick still finished just 24th last spring, but she was solidly in the fall to earn a career-best 15th.

Danica Patrick has shown consistency in her last four races this season with a best of 22nd and a worst result of 26th.

Only one of those races ended on the lead lap. Patrick scored a 22nd in the Camping World 500 after going the full distance and she added four place-differential points in the process. Since then, she has finished one or two laps off the pace in the past three weeks. Consistency gives her a notebook from which to work, but unless she can remain on the lead lap, her ultimate results are subject to the amount of attrition in a race.

Danica Patrick has earned top-20 finishes in half of her starts on two-mile unrestricted, intermediate speedways, which makes this one of her better track types.

She should be watched closely in practice and qualification. Patrick has one top-15 at Auto Club Speedway back in 2014, and although she crashed last spring, she rebounded slightly at Michigan International Speedway. Patrick finished 21st in June and 23rd in August on that track. That might not seem overly impressive, but in the scope of her 2016 season it showed some promise.

Danica Patrick has had an uneven career at Phoenix International Raceway In nine previous starts there, she has three top-20s but no top-15s.

Patrick’s best run was her first. In 2012 as a pre-rookie, she was contending for a top-10 before getting crashed on the last lap and finishing 17th. Her other two top-20s were counterbalanced by a pair of sub-25th-place results in the same season. Last year, she finished 19th in the spring and was 29th in the fall.

Danica Patrick scored two top-10s on similarly-configured, 1.5-mile tracks in 2014, but she has been suffering through a long drought since. In her last 25 efforts on this track type, she has only one more top-15 and a few 16ths.

Last week she finished 17th on the similarly-configured Atlanta Motor Speedway. Fans need to be a little patient to see if she will be able to make a positive adaptation to Ford. She also tends to add place-differential points to her total, which makes her more fantasy relevant.

Danica Patrick earned a pair of top-10s on similarly-configured, 1.5-mile tracks in 2014, but she has not been able to record another in more than two years since.

In her last 24 attempts, Patrick has scored only one additional top-15. That came last fall at Charlotte when she crossed under the checkers 11th. She also has several 16th-place results, so she is expected to at least contend for a top-20. If she fits the right niche on a player’s roster, she could be a good value.

Danica Patrick finished fourth in the Advance Auto Parts Clash.

Patrick stayed out of trouble all afternoon and was not mentioned until the checkered flag waved, but she got a run on the final lap and finished side-by-side-by-side with Kyle Busch and Alex Bowman. That knocked the rust off and makes her a more interesting pick for next week’s Daytona 500.
