BROOKLYN, Mich. - Dale Earnhardt Jr. didn't add anything to the ongoing Danica Patrick story during his media session Friday at Michigan International Speedway.
Earnhardt said he has no role in the negotiations to bring the Indy Car driver to his JR Motorsports Nationwide Series team next season to run a full season, an announcement that is expected to come on Wednesday.
“It’s all Kelley," Earnhardt said about his sister Kelley Earnhardt, president of JR Motorsports. "I haven’t talked to Danica (Patrick) at all about it -- I haven’t talked to Danica since the last time she was at the race track. People always used to say that I didn’t have or I wasn’t focused or I had too many things going on, this, that and the other -- you would be surprised the little amount of things that I have to worry about. Basically, this race car right here and not being late to anything. That’s about all I have to worry about.”
