Danica Patrick On Historic Daytona 500 Spot: 'I'm Fortunate To Be Here!'

Filed under: InspirationNASCARDanica Patrick

Danica Patrick is a badass, and part of being that badass is how humble she is about it!

Just a few days ago, we were pumped to tell you guys that Danica landed the most coveted starting position in the Daytona 500 — which is the first time a woman has ever done that! In fact, Danica feels very fortunate to be there at all, let alone in the best spot!

In the interview (above), she reflects on how the racing game has changed for women, and how she is not taking her place in history for granted, given that women used to not even be allowed in the garage areas!

So fab!

Good luck, Danica!

Jane Kate press conference

As co-grand marshalls of this year's Dayton 500, Jane Lynch and Kate Upton started off the huge NASCAR event on Sunday afternoon with a press conference in Daytona Beach, Florida.

The two demonstrated fantastic chemistry by not only charming the crowd of reporters asking them questions, but each other as well!

As you can tell in the picture above (and more below), these two ladies look like they really get along.

Thanks to a rain delay, the race did not end until after midnight on Monday when Matt Kenseth emerged victorious in the final lap.
