Report: Danica Patrick to stay with IRL team

Danica Patrick agreed to a three-year contract to remain at Andretti Green Racing and stay in the IndyCar Series, according to a report in the Indianapolis Star.
Patrick, the first woman to win a major open-wheel race in last year's Indy Japan, is finishing her fifth season in the IndyCar Series and is fifth in points. She's been rumored to be considering a move to NASCAR and still could compete in a limited number of races.
Patrick's agent, Alan Zucker, did not return calls from The Associated Press. The Indy Racing League and Andretti Green Racing had no comment.
The IndyCar Series season finale is on Oct. 10 at Homestead-Miami Speedway.
Jeff Belskus, the president and CEO of Indianapolis Motor Speedway, has said the 27-year-old American driver is important to the future of the series.
"I know she has said winning the Indianapolis 500 is important to her and that it's a lifelong dream to win that race," Belskus said at the Indy Japan 300.
Patrick finished sixth last weekend at the Indy Japan, which was won by New Zealander Scott Dixon.
