Danica Patrick has taken the NASCAR world by storm, winning the most popular driver award last year as voted by fans. The GoDaddy.com Super Bowl mainstay has now made Sprint Cup history, becoming the first female driver to win the pole position for the storied Daytona 500.
Patrick, who has made millions through endorsement deals that bank on her beauty and popularity, has now driven into credibility within the tight-knight boy’s club known as NASCAR. She won her first career pole by turning a lap of 196.434 miles per hour.
This comes after her promotional partnership with Sega for Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed. The latest iteration of the game just shipped for Nintendo 3DS. But the game is available across all platforms, including Wii U, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PS Vita. Patrick talks about her video game history and explains what she learned from Sonic in this exclusive video interview below.
