Gentlewomen: Start Your Engines. Danica Patrick Drives at Indy

Posted by Fara Kearnes on May 27, 2005 10:34 PM |

Danica Patrick picArmed with pink nail polish and responding to Hoosier hysteria, female driver Danica Patrick will invade the male domain of Indy car racing this weekend. She's got the car, the racing team, and the 'tude to rock the Brickyard.

The 23-year-old rookie sensation will be the focus of all the buzz at the Indianapolis 500 race which has seen only three other women compete in its 89-year history. Danica qualified for the fourth position in the field of 33 cars. In fact, she produced the fastest speed of the month - 229.88 mph.

The hype surrounding Danica is rampant. She's done the media mash -- making the rounds on the Letterman Show and earned the nod of Jim Rome, and she did a provocative photo shoot for FHM magazine. But it's on the track where she proves that she's one to watch.

, Danica is 5-1 (maybe 5-2) and 100 pounds but don't let her small size fool you. She's been racing anything on wheels for most of her young life. "She shakes your hand and, crunch, it's like a truck driver," says Rahal Letterman whose team has won several Indy races. "That's the yin and yang of Danica. The exterior is nice and pretty and underneath she is as tough as steel."

And Danica is good for racing. "I think the public and sports fans in general need role models. They need people to cheer for and read stories about," said Patrick. "They need to find ways to connect with their children. I've heard stories about fathers coming to races with their little girls because all of the sudden that little girl has something to cheer for, and she's like, 'I can go to the race track now.' And that's cool."

Check out her official website for more information.
