Danica Patrick's hopes of ending her racing career by running in both the Feb. 18 Daytona 500 and the May 27 Indianapolis 500, the "Danica Double," took a major blow Thursday when the president of Chip Ganassi Racing said Patrick would not be driving in either race for CGR.

Visa will make signatures optional for chipped credit cards

  Visa will make signatures optional for chipped credit cards It's been about a month since American Express and Mastercard decided to stop requiring signatures for EMV chip credit cards. "Visa is committed to delivering secure, fast and convenient payments at the point of sale," said VIsa's Dan Sanford in a statement. "Our focus is on continually evolving the market towards dynamic authentication methods such as EMV chip, as well as investing in emerging capabilities that leverage advanced analytics and biometrics. We believe making the signature requirement optional for EMV chip-enabled merchants is the responsible next step to enhance security and convenience at the point of sale.

An executive from Chip Ganassi Racing said Thursday night that the team no longer is in discussions with Danica Patrick to have her drive for the team in either the Indianapolis 500 or Daytona 500 . Steve Lauletta, president of Chip Ganassi Racing

By John Haverlin December 9, 2017 On Thursday, Chip Ganassi put to bed the rumors of his team fielding Danica Patrick in either the Daytona 500 or Indianapolis 500 next year. He said the talks have stagnated

Steve Lauletta told Sirius XM NASCAR Radio that while CGR, which runs teams in both NASCAR and Indy Car, was talking with Patrick at one point, "we're not talking any longer. I think it would have made sense and we did have conversations if she wanted to run in both races, the Daytona 500 and Indianapolis 500. Ultimately we couldn't come to a solution that worked for both of us."

Patrick told USA TODAY at Homestead in November that teaming with Chip Ganassi Racing “was possible.” Ganassi said at the time, “I have talked to her and her representatives. I think it’s a fabulous idea, a fabulous marketing idea. It’s a fabulous opportunity.”

Ganassi also said then that “I’m a long way from saying I can do it. They were talking about one (of the two races) or both. I need to know more. I need to talk to my people. There are a lot of moving parts."

'Trading Spaces' star Paige Davis takes aim 'Fixer Upper' stars Chip and Joanna Gaines

  'Trading Spaces' star Paige Davis takes aim 'Fixer Upper' stars Chip and Joanna Gaines "Trading Spaces" host Paige Davis has thrown some serious shade at "Fixer Upper" stars Chip and Joanna Gaines. Davis, who has been credited with starting the design show TV trend with her hit TLC show in the early 2000s, doesn't seem pleased that the Gaineses have taken the spotlight away from her.While promoting the reboot of "Trading Spaces" Davis was asked about her design pet peeves by a reporter at an event at the Television Critics Association's Winter Press Tour.

Danica Patrick still working on Daytona , Indy 500 ride . Steve Lauletta, president of Chip Ganassi Racing , made the comments on Sirius XM NASCAR Radio's "Dialed In'' show. "We're not talking any longer,'' Lauletta said.

Chip Ganassi Racing will likely be the team for which Danica Patrick drives in next year’s Daytona 500 and Indianapolis 500 , her final NASCAR Cup Series and IndyCar races , respectively.

Too many, it turns out, to make it work. Lauletta said he hoped something could be worked out for Patrick to get her into the Indy 500, where she had her greatest success before moving to NASCAR in 2012. She won one Indy Car race and had seven podium appearances in her seven years on the circuit. Since moving to NASCAR, she has had seven top-10 finishes, but no victories and one pole.

"Ultimately I think she will (come up with something). She was fairly successful in some of the races she's run at that place. She knows her way around. There are teams that run just the Indianapolis 500 because of the size of the event itself, so I think they will be able to put something together, and I wish them luck. I think it would be great for the sport of Indy Car racing to have her come back and run in the Indianapolis 500 from an exposure standpoint.

"We're going to stay focused on the task at hand, getting the 42 (Kyle Larson) in Cup and the 42 in XFinity into victory lane as much as we can in hopes of winning a couple of championships. Same thing for our Indy Car program. We've got two cars that were tested yesterday in Sebring and we're going to stay focused on that rather than put another temporary effort together and not doing it up to the standards that we would want to. So I don't think you'll see that happening with us in 2018."

Danica Patrick hasn’t given up on her Daytona - Indy career finale. While it made perfect sense, it only works if she can find someone to put her in a car in both races , and one of the more obvious candidates, Chip Ganassi Racing , which fields teams in both series, seems like a no go.

What are the chances Danica Patrick drives in the Daytona 500 and Indy 500 in 2018? But that " Danica Double" looks less likely now in light of reports that talks between Patrick and Chip Ganassi Racing , one of two organizations that Read more.
