We've still got a few months to go before Danica Patrick decides if she wants to stay with AGR, or go to a different IndyCar team, or try a different discipline of racing, or become the next star of the Food Network. In the meantime her World Leverage Tour marches onward, as she goes door-to-door in the racing world to not only seek offers but to also give the appearance that offers are being given to her.

Patrick was a guest of team owner Tony Stewart last fall at Phoenix. But the two-time Cup champion was not available to be a guide Monday because he was at a Goodyear tire test at Atlanta Motor Speedway.
