Look: Race Car Driver Danica Patrick Stuns in Florida
The year 2008 will always be memorable for professional race car driver Danica Patrick. The 41-year-old made her SI Swimsuit debut that year and also became the first woman to finish first in an IndyCar series event when she won the Japan 300.
The author, actress and entrepreneur, who retired in 2018, is the sole proprietor of a certified organic wine estate, Somnium.
She’s also the host of the Pretty Intense podcast and has served as an analyst for NBC’s coverage of the Indianapolis 500 and Sky Sports’s Formula 1 coverage.
“Part of retiring included doing less,” Patrick told Fox Sports. “It’s not about keeping that same energy going. It’s about cultivating other aspects of myself that will help me in other ways. Trust me, I can still access that other energy. And I do most of the time. But it’s also fun to kind of be in other spaces and do other things.”
Below are seven of our favorite photos from her 2008 shoot with Ben Watts in Singer Island, Florida.
