Danica Patrick and Rolex 24 at Daytona

Sports car racing looks to be getting more and more popular in the US. At least I think there is an upwards trend based on snippets I have recently read in Racer magazine and there is a pronounced upwards trend in participation by NASCAR Nextel Cup stars.

It looks like Danica Patrick is adding her name to the mix:

“I think it’s one of those races where you have to stay consistent,” Patrick said at a three-day testing session this weekend. “As soon as I pick up my speed on the track, hopefully that will stay consistent.”

Danica’s statement may be obvious, and this may be old news to racing fans, but I think it is great that more and more US racing stars are throwing their weight behind sports cars, prototypes, and the Rolex 24.
