Danica Patrick visits Oak Street Beach (interview video)

Danica Patrick came back to her home state (Chicago’s Oak Street Beach) to help promote Chicagoland Speedway‘s summer events. The Roscoe, Illinois native was back in her home state and greeted both media and fans. In the two videos below, she answers racing questions.

The most searched female athlete on the internet talked about what she’s learned in her first year of NASCAR, and what she remembers about racing at each track she comes across. Then, in video two she discusses the possibility of doing “the double,” on a future Memorial Day weekend.

The “double” is racing in both the Coca-Cola 600 and the Indy 500 on the same weekend. Tony Stewart was the last one to attempt it.
