The good ‘ole boys may be making way for the tight curves of Danica Patrick that would make anyone hit the breaks. Danica Patrick is not new to the racing circiut, but she is making her smoking hot physique secondary to her turn-by-turn skills. Her good looks were a help getting sponsors like GoDaddy during her triumph in the IndiCar Series, but it is her talent behind the wheel that has NASCAR looking at her as a new driver. It isn’t just NASCAR looking at her either, it’s Dale Earnhardt Jr.
“She has a lot of those intangible values in a race car driver that are really important but that you don’t learn,” Earnhardt Jr. said. “There’s a lot of things inside when it comes to initiative and willpower and passion that either you have it or you don’t have that.”
Danica has it all. It will be interesting if the good ‘ole boys go against ‘homegrown tradition’ and welcome the talent of a star.
