Even though Danica Patrick has earned every bit of complete coverage this week, it seems that everybody keeps rehashing old news. Yes, she will become the first woman to start atop the pole at the Daytona 500 this weekend. Yes, her victory in the Japan 300 in '08 was the first time a woman had won an IndyCar race, and, yes, her third-place finish at the Indy 500 in '09 was the best for a woman. She also recently finished up a divorce and is now dating fellow racer Ricky Stenhouse, Jr. Oh, and in case you were wondering, her sponsor is GoDaddy and she once posed in a swimsuit for Sports Illustrated.
