Trailblazer: Race Car Driver Danica Patrick

Amazing trailblazer Danica Patrick is the first woman in history to take the pole position for the NASCAR race at Daytona, Florida this weekend. This means she is the fastest car during the qualifying laps. Her speed? 196.4 miles per hour! Congratulations to you Ms. Patrick!

Although this doesn't guarantee a win in the race, it does give her an advantage in the field of 45 race cars. Danica started racing cars at ten years old. She is living her dream!!

Watch her interview given two months ago at the Huffington Post.

  1. That is pretty cool. My husband watched Nascar qualifying. He'll be watching the race on Sunday. I'll check it out from time to time.
