Danica Patrick Takes On Indy Again


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.

Pretty, healthy, muscular, REAL. She could break Paris Hilton in two.

LeatherPenguin, time for a new pair of glasses, better get yourself to an optometrist soon. She don't look like any boy I know, thank goodness for that!

Well, lady athletes in other sports are routinely good looking, so why not lady racers? The only surprise here is just that women have so long declined to enter the sport.

Come to think of it, if you really want the big bucks that go with reaching the pinnacle of a sport, it's not enough to be supremely proficient in the sport itself, anymore; you have to be photogenic. Endorsement money depends on your camera appeal. That seems to apply to men equally as it does to women.

Sorry, I just can't see it. Athletic women frequently have small breasts, it's those toned muscles and lack of body fat I guess. She still looks like a she.

Damn, that is an ugly dress. All that money and no one to help select the good stuff. Solid colors always work better for the cameras.

Depending on who's signing the scorecard, women who drive very fast extremely well get between five and 20 extra Hotness Points.

Not that any of them will do her any good at Indy, but I would love to see her win; she's my second-favorite Indy driver ever (behind engineer / racer / scribe Patrick Bedard, lately of Car and Driver, who has two DNFs, which is not impressive in and of itself but which is far more impressive than anything I've done).

She's more aerodynamic this way. That and she doesn't have the added weight. A competitive advantage.

I'd crawl across 2 miles of rusty barbed wire and broken glass to smell the tire tracks of the truck that carries her dirty underwear to the laundry. :)

I guess she's supposed to be sexy, but here is why I think she's not:

--No breasts to speak of
--No hips to speak of
--Her thighs aren't much more bigger around than her calves.

In other words, almost everything that distinguishes women from men she doesn't have. She does have a pretty face, I'll give that to her, but other than that, she looks like a guy.

But I guess our cultural idea of womanly beauty nowadays tends toward the lean, trim, no body fat athletic type, and Danica Patrick certainly is all of that. Never much cared for that look, though. I much prefer women who actually look like women, with hips, breasts, curves, etc.

At the risk of sounding piggish and low brow.

I'd hit it.

No offense to anyone but the Jamaican Bobsled Team could compete in the Indy 500 if they weren't expected to win.

If she doesn't win races, then what good is she?

Patrick is a good-looking girl who can win a pole or two but for some reason can't cross the S/F line in first at the end of a race. Until she can do that, she is tits on a bull - interesting to look at, but ultimately useless.

Many drivers of the male persuasion would have been sent down for her on-track performance, given the riches she has enjoyed in terms of publicity and team ownership (Rahal-Letterman).

Her main asset right now is that she is a lot better looking than Janet Guthrie or Lyn St. James, and that Maxim and Stuff can't get enough of her. If the latter changes, she'd better start winning races, or her rather curvy posterior will be kicked to the side.

i give danica props for turning down a boob job that someone suggested she get done. her confidence is the sexiest thing and this makes her a great role model. lay off the small boob jabs. look where shes at then look at where you are at! yep, thats what i thought!
