Patrick has proven herself as a driver by being the first woman to win an Indy Car race, which has nothing to do with her being the first Indy driver we'd be okay with seeing in a bikini (sorry Andrettis). In the end, this is more of the well-coordinated campaign to make Danica Patrick simultaneously a: sex symbol, pioneer for women in motorsports, bankable marketing figure, and relevant athlete. Thanks to Graverobber for the tip!
