Danica-Patrick%20.jpg

Last year we introduced you to Danica Patrick, a rookie Indy car driver who was a serious threat to win The Indianapolis 500. We’ll it’s Indy weekend again, and Danica is back for her sophomore effort at the Brickyard. She finished fourth last year, and is starting in the tenth position this year.

Danica, who has brought a whole new level of interest to Indy racing, despite never having won a race is profiled in The Washington Post today, Patrick’s Wheel of Fortune, ‘Danicamania’ Thrives as Driver Seeks First Win.

Her previous work in front of the camera, where she’s already a champion, is featured below (pictures are work safe, if a bit racey)…

If by some chance Danica does win there could be a a bit of nationally televised awkwardness (as pointed out at FARK) when it comes time for the traditional kiss from the 500 Festival queen, Tracey Todd.
