Danica Patrick in spotlight at Daytona
All eyes on Danica Patrick as she prepares for her Daytona 500 debut
By The Associated Press

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) ' The buildup for Danica Patrick's first Daytona 500 began in earnest at Thursday's annual media day, where auto racing's sweetheart was saddled with a full schedule of commitments.

Patrick was shuffled from interview to interview, answering questions and shooting promotions for her first full season in NASCAR. She couldn't even find solitude in the bathroom: an autograph seeker followed Patrick inside and patiently waited for the driver's signature.

Patrick will make her Sprint Cup Series debut in the Feb. 26 season-opening Daytona 500. It's the first of 10 races this year at NASCAR's top level, and she's racing for the championship in the second-tier Nationwide Series.



She says she has learned how to deal with the intense spotlight while racing in the Indianapolis 500 the last seven years.
