Kermit'la Patrick next week will Formally announce her intent to move to NASCAR NationWide full-time in 2012,....

Kermit'la, also plans to enter select Cup races next season

My guess is First CUP race will be " The Daytona 500 "

... in cars prepared by Stewart-Haas Racing, / really Rick Hendrick) with the intent to move to CUP .. Full-time in a multi-year deal with Stewart-Haas in 2013, ... 

Also remember the Hendrick decal on the Penske Indy cars .....

Got to  wonder if Kermit'la is going to be at the INDY 500 in a Penske-Chevrolet, sponsor by GoDaddy ...

She should do O.K. in Nationwide. Cup will be another story. If she gets beside Montoya, she might get a quick lesson.

Also wonder if Mark Martin is going to Drive part time for Stewart Haas .... the non-Kermit'la races ...

That would be a way to get up to 4 cars in 2013.

Tony's Past Champs provisional going to the #7 Go Daddy car in 2012, with Danica driving select races, with Mark covering the rest most likely will finish in the top 35 with Mark driving the majority of the races.

Then in 2013 the provisional going to SH-car-4 with Mark as full time driver.

Do you really think that enough sponsors are hanging around to fund all these cars for Stewart.

Could be. 2013 is still a ways off.

Not sure what they will do for Mark but Kermit'la i'm sure has Go Daddy in her pocket for a while.

Question is .... Will she now race in the "Prelude to the Dream"??

.. Tony's big event at Eldora in June ...

.... that would raise a lot of money for Charity, with the Pay per View ...

Does she have dirt experience? Not saying that would be necessary, but I would think that would help sweeten the deal on her end. A whole getting back to your roots kind of thing.

They wouldn't have to change the seats. :)

No Dirt experience that I know of, only open wheel formula cars ...

In Fact ....only has the ONE Win in Japan in 2008, that I know of ... nothing in Formula Ford, Formula Vauxhall (GM of England), Barber Dodge Pro Series, Toyota Atlantic Championship ... NO wins

You forgot Nationwide and when she does race in it, Cup. LOL

Kermit'la. Hmm where did that come from?

In Florida today after watching my grandson graduate at fort benning. Have a good week all!

August 18, 2011  05:32 PM ET

I have no talent but if I bring a full time deep pockets, can I come too?

If she commits to NW, learns her craft, both driving and business then I'm OK with it. She'll be on a good team with top notch equipment.

And if she's still not finishing better than mid pack, then I'll block out the hype and hope they talk about the other drivers that have been working their way op the ladder from their local tracks...

Are you thinking of the asinine top35 points?

Yes I meant the asinine Top 35 rule, my mistake.

I was wondering the same, doesn't make any sense to me, but then again, what does? LOL

Last week or so,float, I started calling her Kermit as a reference to the green fire suit, and besides, even females deserce a good nickname. :-)
