RICHMOND, Va. (AP) -- Danica Patrick says she is concerned about
traveling to Japan for the Sept. 18 IndyCar race at Twin Ring Motegi.
MotoGP postponed their April race until October because of concerns stemming from the earthquake and tsunami that devastated the country earlier this year. But IndyCar is going forward with its event and Patrick questioned the wisdom of that decision.
She cited concerns with possible high radiation levels in food and water, and earthquakes that have occurred since the March disaster. Patrick also said it made little sense to proceed with the race because IndyCar had already compromised by moving from the oval track to the road course, and the series is not planning to return there next season.
