Danica Patrick In The 2009 SI Swimsuit Issue
Danica Patrick, 26, first raced go-karts when her parents decided the family needed a fun way to spend time together. Born in Beloit, Wisc., she raced open-wheel cars in England before making her 2005 IndyCar debut. Patrick was the fourth woman to race in the Indianapolis 500 and first to win an IndyCar race, taking the Indy Japan 300 title in 2008. Patrick is making her second Swimsuit appearance.
