CONCORD, N.C. (AP) NASCAR driver Danica Patrick says she still follows the Indianapolis 500, but she's not sure she'll ever race in the event again.

Patrick, who first earned her popularity in open-wheel racing, says her focus is on the Sprint Cup series and the chances of her running at the Indy 500 become "less and less likely with each passing year."

Patrick has run the Indy 500 seven times. She qualified fourth in 2005, eventually led 29 laps during her open-wheel career and finished third in 2009.

Patrick says she contemplated pulling "double duty" this year, racing in the Indianapolis 500 and the Coca-Coca 600 at Charlotte Motor Speedway on the same day, but decided against it.
