The 31 year old race car driver from Wisconsion has been making waves in the auto world being the most successful woman in the history of American open-wheel racing. Driving the coveted #10 GoDaddy,com Chevrolet SS during the 2013 season Patrick became the first female NASCAR driver to win a NASCAR Sprint Cup Series pole, turning in the fastest qualifying lap since 1990 – qualifying for the Daytona 500. So pretty much she is a big deal.
