Patrick add Kansas Speedway to Sprint Cup schedule

Danica Patrick will race her 10th and final Sprint Cup Series event on Oct. 21 at Kansas Speedway.

Patrick is driving a 10-race schedule this season, but the final event was not announced until Tuesday.

Kansas was selected for Patrick because it will be open for an additional day of practice due to its recent repave.

Patrick made her Sprint Cup debut in February at the Daytona 500. In addition to Kansas, she still has races remaining this season at Bristol, Atlanta, Chicago, Dover, Texas and Phoenix.

Patrick raced at Kansas in the IndyCar Series. She won her first career pole there in 2005, and qualified third or better in three of her six starts at Kansas. She also had three top-10 finishes there in IndyCar.
