Danica Patrick wants to race in NASCAR.  She's been clear on that, and Tony Stewart acknowledged that to the press.

A couple of days ago, it was announced that Dale Earnhardt Jr wouldn't offer her an position with JR Motorsports, instead signing Kelly Bires.

Now Tony has acknowledged that Stewart-Haas has not offered her a position or a ride with the team, at least not for the foreseeable future.  He has had a good part in helping her with information and advice, but not with a job offer.

Would he want to?  Of course.

"It would be cool to be a part of that, giving her the tools to accomplish those goals and do it right. [But] we don't have a Truck Series or Nationwide Series team, so that's one of the main reasons why we don't have anything to offer her right now. We're not interested in trying to build a Nationwide or Truck series team"

Keep watching, as the NASCAR Wheel turns...........
