Remember that bit a few days ago about Danica! participating in the testing of a Daytona prototype? Yeah, well, umm, on second thought...that little deal with Howard Motorsports ain't happening.

“Howard Motorsports was recently informed that Danica Patrick is not available to participate in the upcoming test at Daytona International Speedway due to unforeseen circumstances. Prior to filing the entries, the team had every assurance that Danica would participate, and based on conversations between Danica and members of Howard Motorsports, Danica was excited about joining the team once again after making her Rolex 24 At Daytona in the team’s No. 2 Callaway Golf Pontiac Crawford earlier this year. Unfortunately, entities outside of Danica and the Howard Motorsports team have determined that she cannot participate in the test.

“We are disappointed to say the least, as we truly enjoy working with Danica and her family. The entire Howard Motorsports organization was looking forward to having her as part of an extremely strong driver lineup in our cars."
I'm guessing those entities would be lawyers, probably for AGR.

Besides, having Danica!, Katherine "Unbreakable" Legge and Rolex series regular Milka Dumo all at Daytona might be some sign of a racing apocalypse.

    Even Danica! has to read the fine print in her contract. Which, if it was the lawyers who stopped this, she obviously didn't do.

    Danica is booked to shoot a video with Fiddy Cent at that very time. Bummer. Dial up my girl Sarah Fisher! I think Danica heard that a couple other women, who have won races recently (gratuitous shot!) would be on the track and she suddenly had to hang with Jay Z.
