Danica Patrick Shot Into Prominence In The World Of Racing Beginning At An Early Age Of 10

Danica Patrick began her career as an American racing car driver when she began racing with go-karts in Wisconsin when she was just 10 years of age. By the time when turned 16, she turned out to be a national sensation in go-karting. She went on to compete in  the Formula Ford car race in the UK. Her passion for racing saw her drop out of high school.

Patrick moved to a driving career in the US in 2002 when she joined Rahal Letterman Racing. She won several races down the line. She participated in the Indianapolis 500, being the fourth woman to do so. The company finally announced her as their ace driver in the 2005 IRL Indy Car Series. She participated in the 2005, 2206, 2007

 She stunned everyone in the world of racing when she won the Indy Japan 300 in 2008.  Her excellent performance in the series brought before her a chance to compete in the Indianapolis 500. She was the first woman to hold a high record in the 2009 Indianapolis 500. She was quoted as the Most Popular Driver in the racing league for three consecutive years. Patrick’s success behind the wheels silenced her critics who were of the opinion that her success did not resonate beyond endorsements.

Patrick showed an interest in modeling when she began campaigning for several products and services. She even took up hosting a TV show. But it was sheer resilience and hard work that saw her to the top of her career in the world of racing.
