Danica Patrick has a favor to ask:
Anybody got $15.2 million to spare?
It’s kinda important, and time-sensitive. With Speed Weeks right around the corner in Daytona the following weekend, Patrick has been left in the lurch by her primary sponsor, Nature’s Bakery.
The company, based in Nevada and specializing in healthy products like fig bars, is reneging on its NASCAR Monster Energy Cup sponsorship deal with Patrick, who drives for Stewart-Haas Racing.
Nature’s Bakery claims that Patrick was in breach of contract for promoting competing products. Stewart-Haas Racing has sued Nature’s Bakery for breach of contract.
It’s a prickly situation for all involved....
