The 2012 NASCAR season was a busy one for Danica Patrick, as she ran the full NASCAR Nationwide Series schedule for JR Motorsports, finishing 10th in points and winning the Most Popular Driver award in the series.
Patrick also made 10 starts in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series, where she had a best finish of 17th in the second Phoenix race.
Next year, of course, Patrick will move to the Sprint Cup Series full-time, driving the No. 10 GoDaddy.com Chevrolet out of the Stewart-Haas Racing stable alongside teammates Tony Stewart and Ryan Newman.
In the above video from NASCAR Race Hub, Patrick sits down with Steve Byrnes to discuss, among other things, her good and bad habits, her expectations and her adjustment from open-wheel racing to NASCAR.
