Danica began racing when she was only ten years old. As a teenager, she went to race in England, electing to get a GED rather than graduate high school. She began racing in the Indy Racing League in 2005, competing for the Rahal-Letterman team, becoming the rookie of…more


Trivia and Quotes

  • Quotes

    • Danica: (on rumors of her switching from IndyCar to F1) First I want to contend for the IndyCar championship and then we'll see what opportunities arise. During my three years in England, I followed F1 closely and became dead set on racing in it. F1 is regarded as the highest level of racing with the best drivers in the world and it's very flattering to have that as an opportunity.

    • Danica: I don't think I should be [photographed] nude... ever. You gotta draw the line somewhere. I don't see myself ever wearing less clothing than a swimsuit.

    • Danica: (on which other driver she would like to see in a swimsuit) My teammate Tony Kanaan - he's got a pretty rocking body. He's ripped.

    • Danica: (about the Indy 500) We're going to win this frickin' race, I promise you.

    • Danica: (about men) I need to kick their asses. I need to beat them, belittle them and make them feel small. Trying to run them off the road at 170 mph isn't sweet and kind.

    • Danica: (about driving on the street) I use my horn more in one day than most people do in their whole lives.

    • Danica: My goal is not to be the first female to do things or to be a poster child or a calendar girl. It's to just win, because everything takes care of itself if you win.

    • Danica: I remember playing cards when I was a kid and ripping them up if I didn't win. If I can't win, I'm not playing anymore.

    • Danica: NASCAR has a lot of races. I'm not sure I'd be prepared to do that many weekends.

  • Please stick to Indy.

    I sure hope that Danica Patrick stays with Indy. Not that I am trying to rag on her, but the truth is she will be way over her head if she thinks she can do NASCAR. She doesn't really understand what she is getting into and she needs to also understand that she will never be able to be at the talent level as the drivers already there. That said, she is hot, but she needs and attitude adjustment. Overall, I must say she needs to improve her skills, attitude, and her approach to the game. But she needs to want to. Thank you.moreless
  • Big Fan...

    In 2005 the Indy car series got a huge boost when David Letterman and Bobby Rahal signed Danica Patrick to their team. It was the week leading up to the Indy 500 that I first heard of Danica Patrick as she was on every sports show and news network, with all the talk about her I decided to tune in to watch the race. From that race on I've been a die-hard Indy fan, Danica Patrick soon became my favorite driver on the field, it was because of her that I became hooked on this series. I look forward to cheering Danica on as she wins her first race.moreless
