Danica Patrick is back at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

Could a return to the Indy 500 be next?

As Patrick spent Thursday preparing for the Nationwide race at Indianapolis on Saturday, she also was looking ahead to next season, when she plans to move up to a full-time Sprint Cup Series schedule. And as part of that move up to Cup, she’d apparently consider ”doing double” duty next May – running the Indy 500 and NASCAR’s race at Charlotte on the same day.
