Danica Patrick - Sport Hottie (Auto Racing)

The first hottie of the sport Auto Racing, Danica Patrick is a petite speedster who has the potential to dominate race circuits across America. Her combination of beauty and ability makes Danica one hot commodity.

Born in Beloit, Wisconsin, on March 25, 1982, Danica Sue Patrick grew up in a loving household with parents T.J. and Bev and sister Brooke. Danica's need for speed was not obvious from the get-go as, like many young girls, she loved to play with Barbie dolls as a child.

She began go-karting in 1992 t the age of 10, however, Danica got a glimpse into a world she would come to love. She accompanied her sibling on a trip to a go-karting lesson and quickly fell in love with sitting behind the wheel of a speedy vehicle. While sister Brooke soon abandoned racing, Danica was hooked, and she soon joined the World Karting Association (WKA).

She moved to England at age 16 in order to advance her racing career. Patrick raced in Formula Ford and Formula Vauxhall, earning a second-place in Britain's Formula Ford Festival, the highest finish by a woman in the event.

Danica Patrick became the first female driver to lead the race at Indianapolis 500. Patrick overcame two crucial errors to finish fourth in the race, the same position in which she started. Her car stalled in the pits about halfway through the 500-mile race, dropping her to the middle of the field. Shortly after, Patrick spun during a caution period, causing a four-car accident. However Danica managed to lead the race twice more, only to be passed by Dan Wheldon with seven laps to go. She placed 3rd in the 2009 Indianapolis 500, which was both a personal best for her at the track and the highest finish by a woman in the event's history.
