CHARLOTTE, N.C. — One of Danica Patrick’s sponsors has stepped up to fill a sudden funding void created when Stewart-Haas Racing sued her primary backer for $31 million in a breach of contract suit.

Aspen Dental said Tuesday it will be the lead sponsor for Patrick and debut on her car in the Feb. 26 season-opening Daytona 500.

Patrick and SHR were left with 20-some races to fill less than two weeks before teams report to Daytona International Speedway because of a nasty split between the team and primary sponsor Nature’s Bakery. SHR is suing for the final two years Nature’s Bakery owed on the contract.

    you just knew that some fool would pick up her sponsorship. Danica is a eye batting egotistical bully on the track and some people love that. How many races has this goddess won at NASCAR ? undeserving over hyped always plays the blame game when ever her driving is less then good. would love to see her win once but her skills will prevent that
