Danica Patrick made history on Sunday when she became the first woman ever to win the pole position at the Daytona 500 or any race in NASCAR's premier circuit.
For Patrick, who may be best-known to non-race fans as the sexy spokeswoman for GoDaddy.com, it's definitely the highlight of her racing career.
She said, "I was brought up to be the fastest driver, not the fastest girl. That was instilled in me form very young, from the beginning." Patrick added, "I've been lucky enough to make history, be the first woman to do many things. I really just hope that I don't stop doing that. We have a lot more history to make. We are excited to do it."
