Danica Patrick has signed on to be part of the NBC Sports broadcast team for its inaugural coverage of this year’s Indianapolis 500. Patrick will serve as a studio analyst on race day, contributing to NBC Sports’ pre-race, in-race, and post-race coverage alongside host Mike Tirico.
Patrick will also participate in NBC Sports’ coverage of Indy 500 Pole Day on May 19.
Patrick has previous analyst experience from three Xfinity Series races with Fox Sports, and last July she was the first woman to host the ESPYs.
“The Indianapolis 500 holds a very special place in my heart. To be on the NBC Sports team with Mike Tirico will be an honor. To me, Indy feels like home!” Patrick said in a tweet.
