All things Danica

Well Danica just tweeted per her website that shes headed for Florida but its not Daytona. She's headed for Disney world speedway which is within the magic Kingdom of Disney world and is a 1 mile tri oval. This is for her NNS team, her and Whitt the new 88 driver and it is a 2 day test.
I was thinking she surely would be testing her Cup car at the Daytona testing starting the 12th? I emailed a columist writer I know at speed.com and asked if he had a list of drivers/teams that would be a Daytona this week?

I don't know, but I suspect we will see her at Daytona before the week is out. Keep an eye on Speed TV. They plan extensive coverage of the testing going on there the 12th - 14th.

She is scheduled to participate in the Cup test in Daytona. She was also included in the media availability schedule (with Tony) that Jenna Fryer tweeted out for Thursday in Daytona. She will definitely be there...I would expect they will really maximize the amount of time she spends on the track during this test.
The Nationwide test is a two day test so there is no conflict in fully participating in both.

not expecting much on speed from Danica, just that she takes advantage of her seat time with all the other aspects of a Cup race?
