Fryer's report also suggests that Patrick, as she has stated for months, initially was reluctant to give up on racing for a living. In 189 starts in the Cup Series, Patrick has seven top-10s and one pole in the 2013 Daytona 500.

I know I always said I'd never go back to Indy, and I was always being honest. "I'm excited for the next phase, trust me".

Patrick made the announcement at a press conference at Homestead-Miami Speedway.

Patrick would not reveal who she will drive for in either race next year, but Chip Ganassi Racing is the likely ride at Indy.

This is a developing story and will be updated.

On Friday afternoon, Patrick announced she will be retiring next year after competing in the Daytona 500 and the Indianapolis 500. Period. I was just emotional. My plan is to be at Indy, and then I'm done.

While she has been racing for Stewart-Haas Racing since 2012, she will not be representing the team at the Daytona 500 in February.

Patrick established herself as an elite driver and fierce competitor in IndyCar, blazing a path to the winner's circle when she took the checkered flag at a race in Japan in 2008. "I think it's [racing in the Indy 500 and Daytona 500] going to be a great way to cap it off". "Especially with me and the sponsor situation".

"But it made me think about things".

"The difficulty is that it (NASCAR) is super competitive", said Patrick.

Patrick spent seven years in the IndyCar series between 2005 and 2011, racing for Rahal Letterman Racing, Andretti Green Racing, and Andretti Autosport. "It's twice the field of IndyCars, 40 instead of 20, basically".

"I feel like this is where my life should be headed".

"I tried every approach I could to figure it out how to make the auto go fast". I tried every approach, and, really, all that ended up happening was I lost my crew chief the first time around with Tony Gibson. "I don't care if your remember me as a girl".
