Synopsis

Danica Patrick by Tara Baukus Mello

At the 2005 Indianapolis 500, 23-year-old Danica Patrick captured America's attention by nearly winning the race. Only the fourth woman ever to compete in the Indy 500, Patrick has proven to be a serious contender in the male-dominated field, although that is no surprise to those who have been following her rising career. Growing up in Illinois, Patrick began racing go-karts when she was 10 years old and has been a fierce competitor ever since. This detailed new biography offers insightful interviews and captivating photographs to tell the story of a determined young woman who defied conventions and outdistanced stereotypes to become a formidable race car driver in her own right.
