When Danica Patrick announced her retirement last year, she said that she would also give the Daytona 500 and Indianapolis 500 one last go before bowing out. She named the two races the “Danica Double” but it was unclear who her team would be, until now.

Patrick will team with Premium Motorsports for the Daytona 500 next month, according to the Associated Press. She’ll be driving the No. 7 GoDaddy Chevrolet, which, as AP notes, is the same number she drove when she first started stock-car racing in 2010.

GoDaddy announced that it would back Patrick once more last week, saying that it would sponsor cars for both her Daytona 500 and Indy 500 races. Patrick’s former crew chief, Tony Eury Jr., will also return to the pits for her finale.
