Danica Patrick Baby, you can drive my car
My apologies to Helio Castroneves, but this babe is the prettiest driver to roll into victory lane. Danica detractors' lips were zipped shut after she edged the smooth moving Dancing with the Stars season 5 champ by 5.85 seconds to take the Montegi 300 in Japan this past April. This small town Illinois tomboy-turned-smoking-hot-engine-revver has endorsements coming out of her tail pipe, with deals plugging everything from Secret deodorant to Honda Civics. The $5 million she banked to crack the fifth spot on the 2007 edition of the Forbes top-earning female athletes will surely double in 2008.
Danica on Danica
''If being a long-haired pretty girl is different, then I'm willing to use it to my advantage.''
