Danica Patrick - Biography & Images

Sky F Danica Patrick

Danica Sue Patrick – born March 25, 1982 – is a former professional racing driver.

She is the most successful woman in the history of American open-wheel car racing—her victory in the 2008 Indy Japan 300 is the only win by a woman in an IndyCar Series race.

Born in Beloit, Wisconsin, Patrick began karting at the age of ten and achieved early success by winning her class in the World Karting Association Grand National Championship three times in the mid-1990s.

She dropped out of high school with her parents’ permission in 1998, and moved to the United Kingdom to further her career.

Patrick competed in Formula Vauxhall and Formula Ford before returning to the United States in 2001 due to a lack of funding.

She first drove in the IndyCar Series with Rahal Letterman Racing in 2005 and took three pole positions, equalling Tomas Scheckter’s record of poles in a rookie season.

Danica was named the Rookie of the Year for both the 2005 Indianapolis 500 and the 2005 IndyCar Series.

She stopped racing full-time after the 2017 season, but competed at the 2018 Daytona 500 and the 2018 Indianapolis 500 before officially retiring.
