Danica Patrick will once again race in the NASCAR Nationwide Series Drive4COPD 300 at Daytona for Turner Scott Motorsports. Patrick will drive the #30 Chevrolet Camaro sponsored by the Florida Lottery. The crew chief will be Mike Greci.

Patrick is excited to once again run the Daytona Nationwide race, after leading last year before electrical problems ended her day. Patrick said:

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. 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.

The Florida Lottery also knows when they see a good opportunity, as Secretary Cynthia O’Connell points out:

Danica Patrick’s immense popularity allows the Florida Lottery to increase awareness about our sole reason for existing – which is increasing funding for education in Florida. In our 26 year history, Florida Lottery players have generated more than $26 billion for education programs and more than 650,000 students have attended college through the Bright Futures Scholarship Program. We are proud to partner with Danica and Turner Scott Motorsports and are hopeful for a successful weekend at Daytona International Speedway.

Based on past success at the track for both Turner Scott Motorsports, and Danica Patrick, expect to see Patrick toward the front, especially with the elimination of tandem drafting.
