Danica Patrick Poses for Sports Illustrated... Again
The lady of the races had once again the chance to be featured in the so-much expected Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue, indycar.com reported. This time, however, the location for the shooting wasn't as exotic as last year but it certainly contained one exotic feature. No, we're not referring to Danica but to the silver Shelby Cobra 427 that starred in the session together with her in the New York studio.
"This year's swimsuit photo shoot for Sports Illustrated was a lot of fun. I'm honored they asked me to be part of the swimsuit shoot again," said Patrick, who will be featured on the cover of the May issue of Shape magazine. "Most of the photo shoots I have done in the past have been in studios so I felt comfortable. The photos turned out great," she added.
More than 70 million people are expected to pick up the special issue while more than 250 million people are expected to view photo galleries on the magazine's Web site. In addition, the first 25 buyers of the swimsuit issue will be given commemorative Patrick/IndyCar Series posters by 7-Eleven stores in North America.
However, that wasn't the only pleasant surprise for the first woman who won an Indy Car race. Earlier this week, she was selected as a Favorite Female Athlete nominee for Nickelodeon's 22nd Annual Kids' Choice Awards. This year, Danica competes with WNBA player Candace Parker and pro tennis players Serena and Venus Williams for the award. Last year, she was lucky enough to get the honor because of online voting but now we have to see is she's still among voters' preferences. By the way, the voting begins on March 2 on www.nick.com/kca and winners will be announced during a live show on March 28.
