Fan Mail Address: Danica Patrick. Race Car Driver. USA

Posted by Fara Kearnes on July 20, 2005 11:57 PM |

Danica Patrick picWhile Danica Patrick was a virtual unknown outside of the racing world last spring, she's now garnered almost stardom "household name" status since her 4th position start at the Indy 500.

She's so popular now that she's getting mail from around the world addressed simply as: "Danica Patrick. Race Car Driver. Indianapolis."

Sure enough, the letters make their way to the motor speedway offices and [eventually, I suppose] get to Danica. Pfft, when your fans don't mess with things like zip codes or street addresses and the villians at the United States Post Office give you a pass, you know you're SOMEBODY.

In fact, race officials have told reporters that 10,000 more tickets have been sold for the upcoming August 14 Kentucky IRL 300 than had sold at this same time last year. Last year's IRL race at the Kentucky Speedway drew 61,885 fans, the largest crowd at the Speedway for an IRL race, and next month's race could see an even larger crowd.
, Although Patrick has yet to win a race, she said she is satisfied in the progress she has made: "I think that everybody hopes I do well. The smart people know that I'm very early in my career," Patrick said.

"I've done so little, and I've done so little oval racing, there's just so much things that are new to me. Smart people, people that are educated in motor racing, know where I'm at in the learning curve. They have a good grasp of what's going on each and every weekend."

What Patrick has done more than anything is boost the IRL's image and exposure. This year's Indy 500 TV ratings were the race's highest since 1996, and Patrick became the first IRL driver to be featured on the cover of Sports Illustrated. You go girl.

Danica, With all the fuss going around with nit wits like Paris Hilton and Britney Spears It is refreshing to see a fe male with some intelligence doing some thing worth while like trying to win the Indy 500. I hope you dont have any problems and cross the finish line safe and sound and in first place.But if 1st place is not in the cards, No matter where you finish, you will always be first in my heart and many other racing fans love Mark

This is in regards to her comments on espn concerning her shoving another driver. A typical female " I wouldn't have shoved him if he would have listened to me"

Danica, I am a female working in an all male auto store. I have extreme interest and respect for you and what you have accomplished. I have an extremely rare car for you that I think would be of interest to Call856-768-9005. You will not be disappointed
