BIOGRAPHY:

Danica Patrick is the Rookie sensation of the Indy Racing League, driving for Rahal-Letterman racing, which is co-owned by racing legend Bobby Rahal, and "Late Show with David Letterman" (1993)'s David Letterman. Born in Wisconsin, she currently resides in Arizona with her miniature schnauzer "Billy" and her husband, physical therapist Paul Hospenthal. When she isn't racing around the track at speeds up to 229 mph, she enjoys traveling, yoga, and spending time with her family and friends.


TRIVIA:
  • At just 20 years old, Danica Patrick participated in the Long Beach Pro Celebrity Race in an effort to secure a seat in CART's developmental Toyota Atlantic Series. Patrick, who had been racing overseas in Formula Vauxhall and Formula Ford, was greeted with disdain by some. Patrick then agreed to a bet with Tommy Kendall in an effort to prove herself. Whoever won the race would get to lead the other driver down pit lane by a leash and collar. Patrick responded by leading all pro and celebrity drivers in becoming the first female pro to win the event and coincidentally the bet.
  • Her INDY Car victory in April, 2008 at Japan's Twin Ring Motegi 300 led to a massive increase in Internet searches for the driver of the No. 7 Motorola car for Andretti Green Racing. According to Yahoo.com, searches for her spiked 1,463% percent in one day.
  • Ranked #69 on the Maxim magazine Hot 100 of 2007 list.
  • At the 2000 Formula Ford Festival in England, she finished in second place, the best result any American driver ever earned in the race.
  • Featured in two commercials during Super Bowl XLIII on February 1st, 2009. According to TiVo, the mock congressional hearing commercial with Patrick was the "most-watched commercial in the Super Bowl".
  • Witnessed the crash between 'Paul Dana (I)' (qv) and Ed Carpenter at the Homestead-Miami Speedway in Homestead, Florida which had resulted in 'Paul Dana (I)' (qv)'s death. (March 26, 2006)
  • Danica Patrick became the first IndyCar driver's image to be added to the famed ESPN Pardon the Interruption (PTI) set backdrop.
  • In 2008, Forbes Magazine ranked her at #9 in the highest paid female athletes in the world. Danica Patrick was the first female athlete in the list that did not play tennis or golf.
