I'm admittedly speaking from a position of ignorance here, but I don't understand why Danica Patrick would WANT to move from Indy to NASCAR. Is the income potential that much greater in NASCAR? As you pointed out in your post about Firestone leaving Indy - Indy seems to be picking up steam. Whereas if race attendance is any indicator, NASCAR isn't the big deal it once was. So while I can understand why Patrick would be interested in racing in NASCAR when she's not busy with Indy, what would motivate her to leave a series that's on its way up for one that seems to be having problems filling the seats? Especially since Patrick has spent almost her entire career in open-wheeled cars, and open-wheeled is generally considered a step up from production/NASCAR racing.
