WEST ALLIS, Wis. (AP) — Danica Patrick says she's sticking with IMG in the wake of agent Mark Steinberg's split with the sports management giant.

And though Patrick hasn't made a decision on the future of her racing career, she says her agents officially are free to listen to offers. Many racing contracts contain clauses that prohibit drivers from negotiating new deals with rival teams until a specific date, but Patrick says her negotiating window is open and her agents are working.

Steinberg, who represents Tiger Woods, did not renew his contract with IMG and left the company last month. Woods has said he's keeping his business with Steinberg.
