Danica with many skills...FHM

Patrick is the most marketable face in the Indy Racing League, having graced the pages of FHM magazine in scant attire alongside a '57 Chevy. The magazine's Web site lists that April 2003 issue as long sold out. With top 4 finish at INDY she now is one of the most marketable women of sports.

But team co-owner Bobby Rahal, winner of the 1986 Indy 500, stresses Patrick "doesn't want to be the next Anna Kournikova," a reference to the tennis goddess who never won a Grand Slam singles title.

Well she may have no choice in the matter, with her skills on the track against Anna Kournikova on the court, Danica wins hands down.

Danica takes 7th. at Nashville

Well it was another se-saw race as Danica trades positions during the race. With key pitstops at the right time and with a little luck, Danica drives her car to a 7th. place finish amid a car that was understeering throughout the race.

Dario Franchitti takes the checkered flag to win the 200.

Note: Danica is nominated for the ESPY awards in Hollywood. Details to follow soon.

Sexy Danica Patrick at 'Herbie' premier

Well it was inevitable that Danica would make her way onto the red carpet via Hollywood.

As she deals with the media blitz surrounding her exciting accomplishments as of lately, Danica finds time to grace the Hollywood scene at the premier of 'Herbie Fully Loaded'.

Our favorite little 'luv-bug' is back with Lindsey Lohan in 'Herbie Fully Loaded'.

If there is a sequel to this first movie a cameo appearance is probably a must for Danica.

Post a comment if you would like to see Danica in a Hollywood film doing what she does best... Racing - while looking great.

Danica Patrick has another top 10 finish

Danica finishes 9th. overall at the Argent Mortgage Indy 300 after starting 1st. on the pole. It was a difficult day with Danica fighting traffic and mechanical problems most of the day. She overcame poor pit stops to rise to fifth on lap 182 only to fall back having to take a final splash of fuel on lap 187 that ended her fight for the front.

It is not her driving in particular that is in question at this moment. Danica has proven without a doubt that she is an exceptional driver and has momentary set backs due to poor pit and fuel management.

Tony Kanaan wins the Argent Indy 300. Kanaan edged Andretti Green teammate Dan Wheldon by .012 seconds, the sixth closest finish in league history.

Danica leads Rahal/Letterman Racing

It was the first 1-2-3 qualifying by one team since Scheckter, Rice and Eddie Cheever did it a Michigan in 2002 for Eddie Cheever Red Bull Racing.

Danica takes the pole and leads the team with her two team-mates right behind her.

Patrick, making her eight career start, was fastest in the morning practice session, too. She drew a big cheer from the capacity crowd waiting for the start of a NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series Race.
