PHOENIX (AP) -- IndyCar sensation Danica Patrick has signed with JR Motorsports to give NASCAR a try, but her schedule in the second-tier Nationwide Series has yet to be determined.

Patrick will make her stock car racing debut in the Feb. 6 ARCA race at Daytona International Speedway, a day before she'll be featured in a pair of Super Bowl ads for Scottsdale-based domain name registrar GoDaddy.com.

The IndyCar sensation unveiled her green and orange No. 7 Chevrolet in a news conference at Chase Field in Phoenix with GoDaddy.com, which is sponsoring her in both series.

Patrick will juggle her new NASCAR job with her full-time job in IndyCar, where she's the series' most marketable driver.
