PETTY: The King says Danica will never win

“I’m really looking forward to competing in the Nationwide Series race at Daytona once again and driving the No. 30 Florida Lottery Chevrolet Camaro,” said Patrick. “Turner Scott Motorsports is a great organization and I worked really well with Mike Greci and the whole team in both of the races I did with them last year. I know that I’m definitely capable of a win this year working with that group, it just comes down to making it until the end. I have to thank the Florida Lottery for coming on board; they’re giving me the opportunity to run this race and to support education in the State of Florida.”

This will be Patrick’s seventh Nationwide Series start at Daytona with a best finish of 10th. Patrick has made 60 starts in the Nationwide Series over the previous four seasons with seven finishes inside the top 10.

Last season Patrick scored the pole for the Sprint Cup Series season opening Daytona 500 and finished a season best eighth.
